I divided the recipe in half and it yielded 12 cupcakes. But as this was my first attempt at the recipe I have some notes to help others from making my same mistakes. First, and most importantly, halfway into the recipe it tells you to make a Cider Reduction. However it needs to sit in the refrigerator for 3 hours so I would recommend doing this the night before. Since I cut everything in half it only took me about 15 minutes to do the reduction. Secondly, and also regarding the reduction, once in the refrigerator the butter rises to the top and hardens. So, I would recommend dividing the reduction BEFORE refrigerating. The frosting calls for 12 tablespoons(or 6 if making a half batch) so measure that amount, put in a separate container and toss the entire amount into the mixer for the frosting later. Lastly, DO NOT heat the reduction before adding to the frosting! I did this and ended up with a bit of a runny mess. You can however heat the other container of reduction that goes directly on top of the cupcake and just brush it on. Hope this helps!!!
