  2. Make sure your ingredients come to room temperature before preparing cupcakes.
  3. Follow recipe exactly, measure properly.
  4. Don’t over mix your batter.
  5. Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to scoop cupcake batter into your muffin tin for same size muffins.
  6. Have fun stuffing the center of your cupcakes with chocolate chips or other favorite chocolate bar pieces.
  7. Make sure your oven is preheated before baking cupcakes.
  8. After your cupcakes are baked remove them from muffin tin so they don’t continue to bake.  You want to prevent drying out your cupcake.
