Tips for Making Perfect Cupcakes

 
  1. Avoid under-baking the cupcakes: If these cupcakes are under-baked, they will fall as they are cooling.  To avoid this, ensure the cupcakes bounce back when pressed on top before removing them from the oven.  
  2. Mix the frosting well:  If the butter/cream cheese and icing sugar is not beaten until light and fluffy, the frosting will be more yellow in colour and dense.   
  3. Enjoy them fresh:  These cupcakes taste best the day they are made.  Otherwise they should be stored in the freezer to prevent staling.

 

 

Recipe Q & A

 

Q:  Why are my cupcakes dense? 

A:  Your cupcakes may be dense if there was a lot of gluten development while making the batter.  To prevent this, do not over-mix the batter after the flour is added.

Q:  Why do my cupcakes taste bitter? 

A:  Making the coffee used for the cupcakes too strong can make them taste bitter.  I use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 1 cup of water.

Q:  Why is my frosting dark? 

A:  Your frosting may be dark if the butter/cream cheese and icing sugar was not beaten sufficiently.  It may also be dark if your vanilla extract has a dark pigment.  You can use a clear vanilla extract to keep your frosting white, however most brands available are artificially made.
