My Baking Trial and Errors

So I have been trying to make a good normal vanilla/yellow/white cupcake with buttercream frosting but I am not having success. I have made lots but they are just not turning out how I want them too. They don't taste bad but they aren't amazing either. Maybe I am just too used to the white cake mix out of a box with the yummy white tub of white frosting. It's sad I know, but that's what I like. Nothing has the same kind of flavor...they just seem bland to me. Dane loves them though...maybe its just cause I'd rather have chocolate cake. Who knows? Hopefully I will find one that I like, otherwise I'll just have to trust Dane's taste buds. :)
Right now I have just a few that I am happy with. I have the Coconut Lime one that I posted a couple days ago. I made a really good chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream but I forgot to take a picture. I have the Pink Champagne one and the White Chocolate cupcake with raspberry filling that I made at my cupcake tasting. I made this banana cupcake that turned out really awesome.
 This is my Banana Nut cupcake. It's a banana cupcake with cinnamon buttercream and walnuts sprinkled on top. This got the best reviews so far. :)
This one needs a name but it is a banana cupcake with chocolate filling and a banana buttercream.  Everyone liked this one too. They were really surprised that the flavors went so well together. I got the idea from James...thanks James! :)
I'm making cupcakes now pretty much every other day. I'll keep posting the ones that turn out good. Let me know if you have any suggestions! :)

I agree with the banana nut cupcake being the best so far, but they are all good. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'd like to try James' banana cupcake with the chocolate filling. Sounds great even though I said I can't eat another cupcake! Love you. Daddy
