When I first made these, I was not fond of the sweet frosting, but since I made a little adjustment to the frosting, I am in love with these! And so are the friends who have tried the cupcakes I've made! I just felt that the frosting was too sweet, but some people may like that. I recalled a dirt cake recipe that combined some cool whip into the cream cheese and powdered sugar mixture, and that was almost heaven when I tried that a while back! Sure enough, I followed the frosting recipe on here, and just added some cool whip until it was a nice thick consistency for spreading, and it did a great job toning down the sweetness, still giving that cheesy taste. Just delicious! After baking them, I cooled them for 10 mins in the pan, and then on a rack in the fridge. They were cooled and frosted in less than 30 minutes. They were so spongey and moist it was unbelievable! The cool whip added to the frosting makes a lot, so I have some leftover in my freezer for next time!
