Other recent spiffiness involves these, and some tasty, but very oddly-textured chai cupcakes.  They taste great, but the frosting separated in air, and the cupcakes themselves rose like muffins.  Since I don’t have Dean or Joanie’s magical grasp of chemistry, I think i’m going to experiment with moving the flavor over to a more traditional (more floury) cupcake recipe.
