Cupcakes are great, but many are wondering how this little birthday and school room treat has come to create such a fuss. Not only are cupcake centric eateries springing up across the country, from home-style Magnolia Bakery on the East Coast to Sprinkles in Beverly Hills, but these once quaint cakes are being served everywhere - even at black tie events!
Watch your baking time and temperature. Use a good, reliable oven thermometer and check that the oven is at the correct temperature before you bake your cupcakes. Also, set your timer to a few minutes less than the recommended baking time Once the timer goes off, check the cupcakes to see if they are ready or actually need the rest of the baking time. This will help you avoid overcooked cupcakes. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of one of the cupcakes. If it comes out clean, the cupcakes are done. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool on a wire cooling rack.
This brings us to one final question. Which of the two is cheaper? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this. Here are a few variables to take into account when figuring up the cost for either. How many servings do you need? What does your baker/caterer charge per cupcake? What do they charge per slice of cake? Do they charge more for a variety of flavors? How do you want your guests to be served? How do you want to display your cake or cupcakes? Can you rent a cake or cupcake stand? Would it be more cost affective to purchase a cake or cupcake stand? In general, the opinion seems to be that cupcakes are cheaper!
Just like coffee makers and food processors, cupcake makers should be a staple appliance in your kitchen especially if you love whipping up cupcakes every now and then. These are small to medium-sized appliances that you can just plug in to make cupcakes. You can make up to 6 or 7 cupcakes in just one cooking. Most cupcake makers have up to 7 holes where you can put the cake batter. They also have a top closing lid. Once you plug in the device, the batter cooks into cupcakes, which you only need to decorate afterwards.
As far as cupcake decoration is concerned, there are many things that you can use to enhance the look and feel of cupcakes like edible glitters, sprinklers, colors and luster sprays. You may also add attractive fondants of different shapes, fruit pieces, chocolate chips and gems to your cupcakes.
