- Make the Most of This Recipe
- How To:
- 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, adding 1 or 2 minutes to the bake time.
- 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.
