Because these dingdong cup cakes are filled with marshmallow fluff, they taste better than the bakery style ding dongs. So much better that you’ll forget about buying them at a store. You just cannot eat one cup cake and be satisfied. You’re bound to ask for more by all means. It’s a fun snack for kids as well. Good cup cake recipes always pave the way for serving unique dessert options, especially when hosting a party. They not only set the mood right but also leave your guests asking for more. Tasty cup cake recipes also make for great cupcake birthday cakes.

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 with no additives like corn syrup etc. Usually organic vanilla extract would be the best option to choose from the wide range of vanilla extract brands available in stores. The ingredients on the back of the product should read as 100 percent pure vanilla.

Always remember to fill the paper liners 2 /3 full only, to prevent the batter from spilling out and wasting it. It’s always better to use a scoop to fill the cupcake liners as opposed to eyeballing it. It’s critical to bring the ingredients to room temperature to prevent lumps in the recipe. If the eggs and butter are still cold, let them sit long a bit longer before you begin baking. Once the cup cakes are thoroughly baked, don’t let them cool for longer than a few minutes in the baking pan. The heat from the pan can cause the cup cakes to overbake and dry them out. Lastly, wait until the cup cakes have thoroughly cooled before you start frosting them. This is important because even if the cup cakes are slightly warm, it can melt the frosting and ruin it. Simple recipe tips like these should help you bake the best cupcakes ever.
