Tips on baking Gourmet Cupcakes

Tips-on-baking-Gourmet-Cupcakes.jpg

Let me start by saying that I was really lucky. My grandma (a wedding cake baker) started teaching me to decorate cakes from the time I was a kiddo, and when I wasn’t learning from her I was in the kitchen with my mom (a caterer) so I was pretty much covered on the learn-to-cook front. I don’t remember ever seeing a can of cream-of-whatever in our house, and homemade pizzas and pastas were totally normal. So were homemade cupcakes (YUM).

To make great cupcakes, you need to first master the basics. After all, a beautifully decorated cupcake doesn’t mean anything if the cake itself is gross. You have to start with a tasty cupcake canvas!

So let’s start with my 10 best tips for baking the perfect cupcake!

  1. USE THE BEST INGREDIENTS AVAILABLE.
  2. BRING INGREDIENTS TO ROOM TEMPERATURE.
  3. DON’T OVERMIX THE BATTER.
  4. USE A SCOOP TO FILL CUPCAKE LINERS – DON’T EYEBALL IT.
  5. PRE-HEAT, AND THEN TAKE THE TEMPERATURE.
  6. BAKE IN THE CENTER OF YOUR OVEN.
  7. RESIST THE URGE TO PEEK.
  8. DON’T LEAVE THE CUPCAKES IN THEIR PANS.
  9. STORE CUPCAKES PROPERLY.
  10. FROST THE WHOLE CUPCAKE TO RETAIN MOISTURE
