Here's how they turned out. My family ended up really liking them anyway, so I feel very touched and somewhat relieved, but this calls for further investigation and re-experimentation haha.
I thought my Project Cupcake was over, but I guess there's till more work to be done. I will try to play around the recipe a couple more times. I THINK I know who the culprit is...FLOUR. I'm going to try and lessen the flour to 1 1/2 C instead of 2 1/2 C. With that I will also lessen the baking powder to 1 1/2 C and see what happens.
Fingers crossed! I'd love to move forward and start really getting more creative with cupcakes, but I can't do that until I perfect my recipe. Wish me luck!
