How to Make Cupcakes
This is a basic tutorial on how to make cupcakes. For some, you may
not need this lesson, but many throughout the world are just
learning the fun and enjoyment of baking and decorating mini size
cakes. There are several supplies you need to make cupcakes such as
a muffin tin and muffin liners. Beyond that all it takes is cake
batter and an oven.
Making Cupcake Directions
- You can use any homemade cake recipe or a box mix to make
- 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.
- 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.
Using a 1/4 or 1/3 Cup measuring scoop to fill
muffin tins works well.IF
you have a muffin
scoop available it is perfect for making cupcakes.
- 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.
- Allow to cool and decorate!
Besides the basic cupcake supplies you can really have fun with
different liners or fun cupcake items.
You can buy muffin liners in various colors
as well as
you can wash and reuse.
