Why I Love This Recipe

it started with this recipe, however i used a half mixture of oil/butter for creaming with the sugar. i think i will have to try to make it with just the oil, because it was an extreme wet cupcake. uber moist, but really good. i also grounded my own cardamom for the cupcakes and the butter cream. i also added some pears dusted in edible pearl powder. since i made this for one of my best friend/greek sisters birthday which was today i added candles ( they were trick candles it was humorous getting them off the cupcakes
