LOVE that you transformed this classic recipe into cupcakes! I'll have to pull out the mayo and make them for the chocoholics around here!
I really need to try a mayonnaise cake sometime soon! These cupcakes look great!
ohhhh I've had cake with mayo before, it is so good! Mayo makes the cake extra moist too I can see why it was gone within days
Loved the funny faces! Tons of fun. The cupcakes look wonderful.
Wow, those cupcakes look really good. I've never heard of baking w/ mayo before! The cake must be very moist. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Love the cake, and it brings back wonderful memories. My grandmother regularly made mayonnaise cake decades ago, which we grand-kids used to gobble up in no time. And love the photos too, particularly the one of Grumpy, whom I've been curious about for ages but haven't actually seen before. He looks young, handsome, and not at all grumpy. Many thanks for this fun post.
I remember making a mayo cake way back when to surprise my family. I love the thought of making that into cupcakes (and I'd probably stick my face into them too!)
I love this post! LOVE all the photos, and that cake looks amazing. Family recipes are the best!
Happy happy people! Who wouldn't be with those wonderful cupcakes?
Love the pictures, Shelby! Isn't it great to have family recipes? Grandmas are the best!
Love that black and white photo. A delicious cake.
Great pics- great food-great weekend!
Sounds like you had a fun and relaxing vacation. You deserve it! I will definitely try this cupcake recipe. Looks delish as well as the drink you made the other day.
Lots of happy faces eating, laughting and enjoying cupcakes Shelby:D
I remember mayo cake from way back when. I know it was supposed to be great cake. I'll have to remember that next time I make chocolate cupcakes.
The cupcakes sounds great! LOVE the pictures, too funny! 🙂
