Awesome baking starts with awesome ingredients. Sure, that generic vanilla extract will work just fine, but if you're looking for bold taste, go for a bottle of Homemade Vanilla Extract ($8) by Cat-Lady Preserves. It's made from premium Madagascar vanilla beans and has a smooth, ultra-velvety flavor. Your cupcakes will thank you for baking with it!
