Making Cupcake Directions

  1. You can use any homemade cake recipe or a box mix to make cupcakes.

  2. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners or spray or grease each muffin tin. Muffin tins come in mini size or normal size. Either pan works great depending on the size you'd like your cupcakes. I like to make mini size cupcakes when I bring them into school functions because they are bite size and less messy. Normal size cupcakes are easier to do elaborate decorating.

  3. Use a muffin scoop or measuring cup and pour batter into each muffin tin. Try to keep the same amount of batter in each tin so your cupcakes will be the same height and cook evenly. This is more important if you are planning to make a cupcake cake with them.

  4. Bake 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the cupcakes.  Test to see if your cupcakes are done by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the cupcake. If it comes out clean its done.

  5. Allow to cool and decorate!
