Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and egg yolk and beat.
Stir in extracts. Set aside.
In separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet.  Pour into lined baking tins.
Bake in a 350°F oven for 20-25 minutes. Cool.

Wow...mine cooked over a bit...I used a tad more flour the next time and they were perfect!
Just not used to the humidity here!  :)
I just pulled the cupcakes out of the pan and used scissors to trim around the cupcake.
