Cupcake Baking Tips For two dozen cupcakes, make enough batter for two 9-inch cakes. Bake in cupcake or muffin pans, and fill your liners 2/3 full. Usually cupcakes are baked at 350° F (adjust for high altitude) and for around 23 minutes, give or take a few. Use the toothpick test. As with other cakes, always cool completely before decorating. Loose crumbs should be brushed off gently before icing. Smooth icing with a knife and short strokes. Leave smooth or pipe a frosty swirl on top, depending how you want to decorate.
Decorating your Cupcakes, you can decorate your cupcakes with just about anything you use to decorate larger cakes. Some of the most popular cupcake decorations are grated coconut, gum drops, piped flowers and figures, shaved chocolate, whimsical designs created with candies - and of course sprinkles. Filling Cupcakes to fill a cupcake, cut out a cone from the top. Then place a teaspoon of filling inside. Before replacing the top, cut off its cone (since the space it filled is not filled with filling). Cupcake Cakes also called pull-apart cakes, these are perfect for birthday parties and youth events. Each guest pulls off a cupcake. Serving’s a cinch and clean-up’s, well a piece of cake. And a great plus with little ones - everyone gets the same size serving! You can sculpt a cupcake cake into just about any shape you can imagine: numbers (for birthday ages), sports (footballs, team logos and names, etc.) holiday figures, flowers, Easter baskets and bunnies, cats and dogs, well you get the picture. The shape doesn’t have to be exact (and probably won’t), but the decorating will add the realism. Here’s how it works: Bake cupcakes in double liners (for extra strength). Arrange baked cupcakes on a covered, sturdy cake board. Play around with this until you get the shape you want. Staggering works best, and keep them close together. Dab icing onto the bottoms of the cupcake liners, returning them as you do to their original positions. The icing will, once it dries, help hold the cupcakes in position. Crumb-coat. This is optional. Thin some icing or make a glaze. Spread over all the cupcakes. Crumbs will show, but that’s ok. When it dries, the crumbs won’t be swept up into your final coat of icing. When the crumb coat has dried, smooth your regular icing over the whole cupcake cake Decorate.
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.
