Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line your cupcake pans with your choice of paper wrappers or liners (click here for a great selection of different cupcake liners and wrappers)

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Next, add shortening, milk, and vanilla.  Beat the mixture for one minute on medium speed and scrape side of bowl with a spatula often.

Next, add eggs to the cupcake mixture.  Beat for one minute on medium speed and scrape the bowl again.  Beat on high speed for 1 minute 30 seconds until the cupcake batter is well mixed.

Spoon cupcake batter or put into pastry bag and pipe into your paper liners until about 2/3 full. Try to keep all the liners filled evenly.

Bake the cupcakes for 20 to 25 minutes until the tops are golden brown, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean without crumbs attached.
