Baking a cupcake is easy, but baking the best cupcake is slightly difficult.
Why is it so?
Here are some mistakes made while baking cupcakes. Some of the noted mistakes can lead to disasters while others can still be a turnoff. So, read and understand them so that you don’t make any of them.
Sub-standard ingredients or a poor mix, either way you are spoiling your cupcake. High-quality ingredients are important. At the same time, it is important to know what is required and in what quantity. For example, if the cookbook or expert tells you that you need one cup cocoa powder, you need cocoa powder only. Also, if it is noted that you need just one cup of cocoa powder, don’t assume
that experimenting with an additional cup or half will not affect your cupcake. It definitely will!
Warning: Before using your ingredients, it is important to bring them to room temperature. Using them
straight out of the fridge will not be a good idea because it will not bring in the smoothness. So, bring
them to room temperature before using it, especially egg and milk.
Mixing the batter
Mixing is important, but people often over-mix the batter. Over-mixing crushes some of the air bubbles
that can lead to hollow tunnels inside of your cake. Look at your cupcake. If you do not like it, it is
probably because of those tunnels that make your cupcake look average.
We often make this mistake. We do not pre-heat the oven. Placing your cupcake tray in the over before
it is ready; you are messing up with the baking process. So, be careful and pre-heat the oven before
placing the tray in your oven.
We love to know whether our efforts have paid off or not. So, we keep peeking by opening and closing
the oven door quite often. Opening and closing the oven door regularly, you are disrupting the structure
of the cupcake. So, resist the urge of peeking, and the result will be better than expected.
How do you fill it?
Well, if you are not using a scoop for filling the cupcake liner, you will be disappointed on pulling out
your tray of cupcakes because they are either overcooked or still raw inside.
Placing the exact amount of batter in each liner is possible if you use a scoop.
For minis, use a small cookie scoop and for standard-sized cupcakes, use a large scoop.
Want to buy a scoop that is perfect for your need? Buy it at Overstock.com. Apart from the scoop, look
for deals and discounts too because Overstock.com is not the most economical online store. Also, look
for coupons that can help you get additional discounts on your purchases.
However, before choosing coupons, make sure that you choose unexpired and matching coupons. For
example, if you are purchasing items from Overstock.com, look for Overstock.com deals and offers only
so that you can get the best deals on your purchased items.

Hey guys! I know my readers are from all around the world, but with this post, I wanted to focus just on those readers who are in my own local area.
I’m super excited to announce that I’ve partnered with Deal Co-Op and have launched DealMoms Toledo! DealMoms Toledo is a posting of ‘Groupon like’ deals specifically in the Toledo and surrounding area. I’ll be offering amazing deals from local businesses to families in our community.
Here’s how I got involved: I was approached by Melissa who heads up the Greenlake Moms site and talked to her a bit about how she had started a local moms ‘daily deal’ store in her own small community and how it’s worked out. I was intrigued by it, and decided it would be a great way to feature more local businesses so DealMoms Toledo was born. As soon as we hit 500 e-mail subscribers the first deal will be launched!! If there’s a business that you know about and would love to see us put out an offer just let me know! Or if you are a local business who would like to be involved please contact me.
Toledo used to be a great growing city, and it’s sad to see some of the local neighborhood businesses not gaining much traffic so my goal is to provide them with local consumers who will come back again and again after discovering them for the first time on DealMoms Toledo. 90% of the deals will be from the Toledo area and the focus will be to find businesses, services and attractions that are great for moms and families!
Please feel free to sign up now at : www.dealmomstoledo.com
Please also feel free to share the site with your friends and family. Even though the deals will be community focused we want to extend the offers to friends, family and neighbors. We will have national and online deals for businesses outside of the local area from time to time as well.
If you have a request to either offer a deal or see a specific deal offered in our store please feel free to contact me.
