Vanilla Cupcakes, easy recipe

My baking season never ends.  We actually love to bake and have different sweets around the house.  I am still looking for dinner recipes but I have lots of dessert recipes.  Today, I am sharing with you one that we make often.  Vanilla Cupcakes.  Sometimes when we make them, we dye the batter and/or the icing.  
I found this recipe in a magazine long ago, and just copied it to my notebook.  I have no idea which magazine unfortunately so I can not give credit this time to who it belongs to.
