Tips

Butter

Butter

Well, as we all kinow, spraying oil in the mold its the "must do it" tip, but for some reason that never worked for me, even though I follow the recipes step by step. So one day, when my sister little was helping me, she used butter instead of oil, I asked why and she said, "who cares, nothing's gonna happen" so I went with it, and guess what? the cake baked perfectly, for the firt time in God knows how long, one of my cakes baked like they do in TV, I was thrilled and I've been using butter for my molds ever since, It even add a special falvor to it ;) Like I said, I don't know if some people already knew about this, but, if you don't, now you do :D kisses <3

To not have a hard time spreading frosting you should always spread after a cupcake cools and spread quickly!
