My twin boys will celebrate their 6 month birthdays in a few weeks. I'm using it as an excuse to throw a party at a local bar/hofbrau and plan to bring cupcakes (yes, this is ok with the venue). I was raised to bake from scratch but time is precious now. I'd love to avoid using cake mix/frosting from a can but don't want to spend a lot of time or money on the treats. Does anyone have a tried and true yummy and easy recipe(s) for cupcakes and frosting? My preference is for a yellow cupcake with chocolate frosting, but can be easily persuaded to go with another combination if the recipe warrants it (sleep deprivation makes me indecisive).
