Seguí su receta al pie de la letra sin analizar las medidas de los ingredientes y el resultado fue decepcionante, un cupcake imposible de comer, muy pesada la mezcla, insípida. Todo se fue a la basura, mi dinero y mi gas. En verdad que decepción.Obviamente calificación es mala. Verifiquen sus recetas antes de publicarlas.
