I have received many requests to post recipes so here is my favorite basic yellow cake!

I made 150 cupcakes today for our Purim by the Sea.

I love these cupcake liners especially since they look like bubbles in the ocean! (

I plan to frost these with chocolate frosting and gently lay an Orange Gummy Fish on top to continue the theme’s look. (photos coming:)

Ok heres the recipe! Delicious to eat and simple to double or triple as needed:)
