Most of us don't really follow directions when we don't like cooking... wonder if that's part of the problem lol... anyway, if you need or want the instructions, you can find them here...
But the recipe did come from Canadian Living and I haven't found a bad recipe yet, so you just might want to give this recipe a try.  Have you noticed how suddenly there are cupcake recipes EVERYWHERE??
