Question ISO the perfect cupcake recipe!

ive recently got a bee in my bonnet about cupcakes, but none of my recipy books have any recipys !!

Have made plain vanilla ones from a site i found, but the tops were not at all flat like i wanted! plan to do the black forest ones aswell as they sound lovely (cant post site co not enough posts yet but will add it when i do!!)

Still after more tho! Anyone got any really tasty recipys for the cake, the icing (frosting?) or both? failing that a good book on the subject!

Fill cupcake papers/moulds
1. 1/2 full for "flat" top
2. 2/3 - 3/4 full for domes
3. nearly full for "mushroom" tops

The structure for the cupcake depends on the density of the batter: eg a thin, oil-based chocolate batter can run the risk of over-flowing while a fudgy batter may not dome very high even if filled nearly to the top ..
