Easy Muffin/Cupcake Batter Filling
Filling muffin cups with muffin or cupcake batter can be a messy task. Using a trigger-release ice cream scoop can make it a clean and easy task. Plus, it ensures a consistent amount of batter in each cup. Check out this video for more information.
Adjusting Bake Temperatures for Cookware
The type of baking dish you use can affect your results. Dark coated metal pans conduct heat more efficiently than uncoated metal or glass pans, which can result in overbrowning or even burning. If using a coated metal pan, reduce the baking temperature by 25°F to combat this.
How to Store
Keep frosted cupcakes refrigerated.
