This is the recipe that made my mother-in-law a Facebook sensation ... well, at least to my friends. :) She made these cupcakes on a recent weekend when we were visiting and man ... it took all of my willpower to not eat all of them.
I think this would be a great recipe for a wedding or a baby shower. For any event, you can change the color of the food coloring or omit it all together.
