  2. Hi How many cupcakes does this make? I'm making them for my son, he requested this flavor.
    I need 24, so I hope this makes 24?? :)
    If not, I guess I'll just make another batch.
    Thanks so much!

  3. Good morning! I realize this is a couple years old.... Thought I would answer my own question in case someone else needs to know. The recipe above made about 16 cupcakes so I made 1.5 which gave me 24. :)
