    I thought these were good, but not great. The buttercream didn't have as strong of an amaretto taste as I was expecting.

    Didn't make the icing (sprinkled turbinado sugar on top before baking) but the cupcakes are so delicious I'm giving five stars even w/o icing. I did add 1/4 tsp. almond extract, a dash of nutmeg, and used 50/50 white & whole wheat flour, otherwise no changes. Fluffy, complex in flavor, and delicious with ice cream or plain! Might add chopped walnuts next time. Did need 5 extra minutes in the oven.
