Vanilla Raisin Cupcakes

Sunday, August 30, 2009


I had made this cupcakes to prepare for my fondant cupcake project for the upcoming parents' house warming party. The cupcakes were moist and filled with raisins flavour covered with the orange juice. A very nice and simple recipe and it's very good to just have it on it's own even without any decorations.
