Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make it Easy
Here’s a tip to make whipping up a batch of cupcakes easier. Pour the cake batter into a large resealable plastic bag. Snip off one corner from the bottom of the bag, then squeeze the batter into the prepared muffin cups. It’s much quicker and less messy than spooning the batter into the muffin cups.
