- TIPS FOR CUPCAKE BAKERS: Do not overmix your batter. Mix it only until all ingredients are well combined. Over-mixing will cause gluten to form in the recipe. This will cause your cake to rise beautifully in the oven and then drop as soon as you remove it.
- Keep the oven door shut! You can check the cupcakes by looking through the window.
- The door opens to let heat escape and cold air in. This can lead to uneven baking, especially for cupcakes. For the best heat distribution, bake cupcakes in the middle of the oven.
- After removing the cupcakes from their pans, transfer them to a wire rack to cool. You can dry out your cupcakes if you let them remain in the pan. To prevent them from drying out, cool frosted cupcakes should be kept in an airtight container.
