Falling Apart Cupcakes

For the 4th of July, I made Devil’s Food Cupcakes from the More from Magnolia Cookbook. The vanilla cupcakes and buttercream frosting I previously made came from this book, so I thought this should be fine. This was one of the worst recipes I have ever made. The cupcakes completely fell apart and had no consistency. Plus the taste was off, it just wasn’t the chocolate devil’s food I wanted. To accompany this, I made the suggested caramel frosting. The authors warned it would be gritty at first due to the brown sugar. It was definitely gritty and it didn’t seem to get any less gritty upon sitting as was suggested. The flavors tasted okay together, but the whole thing was just off.  And they didn’t look very pretty so I didn’t take a picture.   I had previously tried the chocolate cupcakes and chocolate frosting (not blogged about) and they were just mediocre.   I  am beginning to think that best recipe from the book I found online for free and that all the other ones are going to be sub-par.
