Topic: Cupcakes - help!!!
I am really getting into baking. I have been making my own bread, brownies, flapjacks and even made two christmas cakes whoch I am going to decorate myself.
BUT, I am a bit rubbish at cupcakes. I've made a couple of batches and whilst they taste okay, they are not dome shaped on top, they are irregular and wonky.
I use silicone cases, but would I be better using a metal cake tin with paper cases? I want to decorate them too, so can you bake them in silicone cases, then swap them into paper for decorating?
Excuse if this sounds a silly question, but I only ask because I was given "The Hummmingbird Cafe Cake Book" by my wife and all their pictures show cupcakes in paper cases, not silicone so I am wondering if it is more appropriate to use paper ones with a metal tray.
Hope my questions haven't confused you - would love to hear your opinions on this.
