Muffin tin tip

Muffin tin tip

Got more cake batter than muffin tins? Place canning jar rings on a cookie sheet to hold cupcake liners while baking.

Worked Well

Worked Well

When I used the Red Velvet cake mix, I used 1/2 cup of sour cream, and mixed it with enough (real dairy) half and half to equal 11/4 cups to replace the water. I also added two extra TBS of cocoa powder, and one half TBS of vinegar. Imade cupcakes and they turned out wonderful!
