Great, but need a little more, Member CTSongstress

The cupcakes came out great! I, too, used crushed berries instead of the preserves and opted for butter instead of shortening. I found that I needed just a little more batter, as some of the cupcakes came up a little ""short"". Will increase the recipe by about 1/8 next time. Thanks so much!!!
