Tips

Butter Cakes

Butter Cakes

I find that any of the cake mixes can be enhanced and made richer by using 1 stick of butter subbed for the oil in most of the recipes. I cream the butter first and then add the eggs and mix till fairly smooth. Then I add the mix and water a little at a time till the consistency is smooth and light. I usually cut the water by as much as a 1/8 cup. Bake as usual. You'll find that the cake is more like a sponge cake with half the trouble and ingredients.


Filling Your Cupcakes Is Easy

Filling Your Cupcakes Is Easy

You can easily add a filling to your cupcakes without having a fancy, expensive cupcake tool. Simply use an apple corer. Insert it into the center of your cupcake, gently twist from side to side, pulling out at the same time. This will take the center out of your cupcake leaving a nice little hole for your filling!! Works perfectly everytime!! Then you cut your leftover 'core' in half if you want and place the leftover half back on top of your filling. Or just frost over, whichever.
