Cupcakes came out perfect. I used half and half instead of milk because it’s all I had in the fridge. I had to bake for 5 minutes longer than recipe stated. They are sweet and soft and do not fall apart. The almond flavor was not overwhelming and I definitely recommend these for any event or just enjoy at home.

I should have read the reviews first! I was nervous while whipping up the batter because it seemed very airy yet dense. It didn’t form to the cupcake tins too well and I had to help it with a spoon. I must have done it right though because these are amazing. A rich, satisfying texture that is far from box mixes. I will be making these again and again!

I made these for my birthday and my (Dutch) family raved about them. The paste does make the texture pretty dense, so that’s different than most cupcakes and soo scrumptious!

These cupcakes were great! The almond flavor was terrific. I did not make the icing that goes along with them because I do not care for buttercream icing.

Fantastic! I love the almondy flavor. The almond paste was a good call.

is it possible to use spreadable butter instead of stick butter in the frosting?

I made the icing to use on a version of PW’s “best chocolate sheet cake ever” for my nephew’s first birthday cake. I made 2 of the cakes in a regular cake pan & layered with this icing. It was AWESOME. I had more people comment that this was the best icing they had ever had. Great flavor but not too sweet. I did use a little less sugar than the recipe called for. This will definitely be my new go to buttercream! Next time I’ll try the cupcakes.

You can find vanilla bean paste at a Williams-Sonoma if you have one locally, and one store online that I know sells it is King Arthur Flour. I’m going to give the icing a try on the Moist Vanilla Cupcakes I’m making for my daughter’s birthday. I wanted to make these cupcakes but I couldn’t find almond paste locally, so I’ll have to bookmark this one for next time!

i made these tonight. Delicious!! I used vanilla extract instead of vanilla paste because the stores where I live don’t have it and the frosting was still amazing!

Just made these: WOW! They are fabulous!! I used vanilla extract in the frosting and it turned out yummy, but next time I’ll be sure to try the paste.
