Nothing in the recipe prepared me for these to be as dense and dry as they turned out to be. I was expecting regular light and tender cupcakes. I did not read ingredients and then think "oh, these will be heavy and dense", so I was disappointed. They look nice and baked very evenly, but were not at all what I was wanting. Instead of throwing t"

I thought the cake itself was very good and moist. But the icing had some problems. First of all the proportions must be wrong, SEVEN cups of confectioners was way too much and the taste was bland and overly sweet. SO I went to the cake doctor's book and looked at their recipe for strawberry cake and adapted this recipe to be more in line with "

I followed the recipe exactly. After 40 mins, I open the oven door to find a fair amount of white cream on the bottom of the oven. (note to self, get a 2" deep pan).

I wanted to like this recipe since it was so easy. But honestly, this was a waste of some really really good peaches. Personally I like mushy desserts, but this topping's texture was very "pasty" and the oats came out a bit undercooked. It was gluey and wet, not good at all. I re-read the recipe and I followed it to the letter. Not sure if I "
