The cupcakes are moist and light-as-feather because the recipe uses the creaming method of combining butter and sugar together. Always keep in mind when working the creaming method it is important to beat the two ingredients until the sugar completely blends with the butter. If the sugar is still crusty, the cupcakes might not be as fluffy and end up having a crusty texture of sugar coating on top which is not a pleasant sight.

Some important tips to keep in mind when baking cupcakes are, using quality ingredients in the batter to get that luscious depth of flavor. If you’re on a budget, then prioritize your list of recipe ingredients based on the most important baking supplies to the least important ones and purchase the quality baking ingredients for the recipe accordingly. Using a quality vanilla extract will impact the flavor to a large extent. Always buy the best vanilla extract preferably, organic vanilla extract with no additives like corn syrup. Make sure not to overfill the paper liners with the cupcake batter. Always fill the cupcake liners until 2/3 full to ensure that the batter does not spill. Use a measuring ladle to fill the liners instead of eyeballing. Make sure to bring the ingredients to room temperature to avoid lumps in the cupcakes. If the main ingredients like eggs and butter are still cold, let them sit until they reach room temperature before you start baking. Don’t let the cupcakes cool for longer than a few minutes in the baking pan. The heat from the pan can cause them to overcook and dry them out.
