    I think you should say how long to bake the cupcakes…. Also, the bot question should be before the Submit button.

    fyi. u must use a vegan sugar. regular sugar is not vegan, they use charred animal bones to bleach it. Florida Crystals makes a vegan sugar. Good luck

    Can you please do a tutorial on how to make the flower toppers! I always try and they end up looking non edible! Thanks!
