The Cupcake Project Explorers Are…

I was honored/humbled/awed/floored/thrilled that almost 700 of you volunteered to be Cupcake Project Explorers – a huge thank you to everyone who volunteered!  Narrowing it down to 50 was a nearly impossible task.  I’ve assembled a diverse team of cupcake enthusiasts with a wide range of skill levels.


Some have only baked cake mixes before, some are from-scratch bakers who are regularly called upon to bake cupcakes for family and friends, while still others are pastry school students, professional bakers, and cupcake shop owners who sell either out of their homes, farmers’ market stands, or brick and mortar shops.  Some have a favorite vanilla cupcake recipe already that they plan to compare this one against.  Others have tried a few and haven’t found a favorite.  A few of have tried hundreds of vanilla cupcake recipes!

What the Explorers all have in common is a passion for cupcakes and an excitement about working together to find a recipe that everyone can share!

Once the Cupcake Project Explorers decide on an Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake recipe, I will post it on Cupcake Project with confidence that you’ll love it!
