After reading various reviews, I decided to change this up a little. Substituted 3 whole eggs instead of egg whites and added 1/4 cup more water. These cupcakes turned out fabulous! The frosting was delicious also. For those new to making frostings, try adding 1/2 the liquid called for and then gradually add the rest as needed. Weather conditions can change how much liquid you will need! I know, strange, lol.
