I use my favourite cake recipes- chocolate, orange, lemon cakes. More success than with cupcake recipes. We like a more dense cupcake rather than the lighter versions of cupcake recipes.

I have been asked to make cupcakes for my son's girlfriend's 21st this Saturday. I am thinking I will make 4 or 5 dozen, do I make little tiny ones, or a bit bigger. Also shall I make lots of different flavours or just 1. I have never made them before but want them to be perfect, so any suggestions will help, please.

I would make normal size ones if you are going to make 4 or 5 dozen. Ice with fresh butter icing and decorate with a crumbled flake or something. This lemon cupcake recipe goes down very well and is so simple! You don't have to put the lemon curd in if you don't want. Here is the recipe http://aftertasteblog.wordpress.com/2011/10/02/lemon-sour-cream-cupcakes-with-lemon-curd/ and here is the recipe for the lemon curd if you choose to do it that way. http://aftertasteblog.wordpress.com/2011/10/02/easy-lemon-curd/
