We are huge fans of Cupcakes at our house. My daughters and I enjoy sampling delectable desserts from “The Sweet Tooth Fairy” and “One Sweet Slice” – both local winners of Cupcake Wars on Food Network. We have fun making cupcakes for special occasions, birthdays, and gifts of love.
I have finally posted some of my favorite recipes on my blog (see previous 11 posts). I also posted them permanently in an album found on the right column of my blog:
I have to credit Lizzy Early for many of these delicious concoctions. I love how she uses a basic mix, then adds ingredients to make fabulously moist cupcakes.
Here are some wonderful tips/links from her:
- Video Tutorial for Mixing the cupcakes – VERY important to sift the cake mix first. Whisk the wet ingredients, then stir in the sifted mix with a large spatula.
- Piping Tutorial (I bought most of my piping tips and bags from Orson Gygi.
- How to Cater a Wedding with Cupcakes
- For Moist Cupcakes: While cupcakes are still warm from baking, place on a cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap until you are ready to fill and frost cookies. Or – place them in a long shallow tupperware bin with a tight fitting lid.
