“A party without cake is just another meeting”.
So when Margaret chose another dessert besides cake for her birthday party cupcakes became a great alternative to accompany her other choice.
This is a great recipe. It is small, only makes 12 cupcakes and is easy to throw together.

3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
