I'm planning to make duchessII81's Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes.
She's using an adaptation of Martha's Swiss Meringue Buttercream, which states, "Makes about 9 cups, enough for about 28 cupcakes".
I'm also looking at Martha's Strawberry Buttercream which says it makes 5 cups (that makes sense, since it calls for about half the ingredients of the other recipe) but this "goes with" her Strawberry Cupcakes recipe which says it makes 34 cupcakes.
So 9 cups is needed for 28 cupcakes but 5 cups is good for 34?! advice from bakers is appreciated
