Expert Tips

  • Tip: If you have only one 12-cup muffin pan, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Then bake the rest of the batter in the cooled muffin pan.
  • Easily fill a bag with frosting by placing the bag into a mug and turning the top down over the sides. Fill with frosting, then twist to close the top of the bag, squeezing to one corner before snipping off a tip.
  • Bake cupcakes ahead. Tightly cover unfrosted cupcakes and freeze up to 2 months.
