Wow, these came out so perfect, beautiful. They didn't go over the top of the pan, puffed up nicely and came out of the pan in perfect shape. I followed the recipe as written, I did use the Red Velvet color/flavor that I order from King Arthur and it was a great color. However, I did get 24 cupcakes instead of 16 which was great as they are for"

This soup was "okay", it was a bit thin and I added at least 2 tsp more salt! I like a thicker soup, the flavor was good and it didn't keep well and curdled a bit when I heated it up. Probably won't make it again.""

These were "crazy" good, so good in fact that they are on the menu for a cupcake wedding I am doing in November. The only thing I added, was mini choc chips to the frosting which added a little crunch and my bride to be loved it!! This is a keeper.""

Well, it wasn't good or really bad, just blah! I love fall soups, but this was so bland it was barely worth eating. I did not add the water, instead added more stock and more cheese. I used what I thought was a sweet potatoe, but I did not get that orange color like it shows either. I used at least triple the salt and pepper just to give it so...

Very expensive ingredients (heirloom tomatoes Very time consuming and we did not enjoy it at all. I don't know if the cooking time is too long, but the crust got very dark around the edges along with it tasting very gritty and tasteless. The filling had a lot of flavor, but the tomatoes lose their texture and turn to mush. I actually threw the...

I do not know what went wrong with these cupcakes, but they flopped in every aspect. First and foremost, the recipe did not make 9 regular cupcakes, it makes 24!!! I filled 9 cupcake liners and I still had a bowl full of batter. Then, they fell in the oven and spread out all over the muffin tin. I made these to go with a different buttercream...

These are truly caramels to die for! I used Vanilla Bean Sea Salt that I found at a specialty store and you literally cannot leave them alone. I plan on giving these for most of my christmas gifts. The other recipe on the website is not correct, calling for less sugar and more cream. this is the right recipe and it cooks up perfectly!

I am having a terrible time with caramels in general. These came out OK, When I stirred the cream mixture, I had a big blob of caramel in the middle of the pan, so I added the vanilla, gave it a little stir and continued to cook with a candy thermometer.I also found Vanilla Bean Sea salt, so I used it in these caramels. Hope they turn out, I really...

So dissappointed in this recipe. I am a seasoned baker and candy maker and the sugar and water turned into a hard solid disk of sugar. Very vague instructions, stir or no stirring??? Very upset over the wasting of ingredients and it took me forever to melt the sugar mixture down the drain and clean the pan. WILL NOT be making this again. Will...
