Cupcakes, also known as fairy cakes or patty cakes, are small cakes which are made to serve one person. They are usually decorated with icing and/or sprinkles. Cupcake origins can be traced back to 1796 in an American recipe described as "a cake baked in a small cup".

Red Velvet Cake

How do you make red velvet cupcakes with white cake mix?

Red velvet cake / cupcakes is the exact same recipe for white or regular (yellow) cake, with the addition of a little bit of cocoa powder and a lot of red food coloring.

A different response:

One could make "mock" red velvet cupcakes with white cake mix and the addition of cocoa powder and red food coloring. But actual Red Velvet Cake, whether baked as a whole cake or as cupcakes, is made from a different recipe than that produced by a white cake mix. Please see the link below for a Red Velvet Cake recipe.


Should cupcakes be refrigerated?

nope... i never have. i just out them in a clip container in a cool cupboard. just make sure it's airtight.

It depends on what kind of cupcakes they are, and at what temperature you want to serve them at. For instance, if they have cream cheese frosting, I would recommend refrigerating them, since the cream cheese could spoil. Most of the time, recipes have instructions on how to store the cupcakes, so with these and a dash of commonsense you can figure out how to store them.

Cooking Times and Temperatures

How long to cook cupcakes?

Answer :

It can vary depending on the type of cupcake you are making, but usually between 15-25 minutes. I always bake mine somewhere in between, then insert a toothpick in the middle to see if they're baked all the way through. If the toothpick comes out with batter on it, bake them a minute or two longer and then check them again. If they are done, when the toothpick is inserted into the middle, it will come out clean. Be careful not to over-bake them. Remember, they will continue to cook a short time longer even when removed from the oven.


How do you make a cup cake?

How to make cupcakes; general instructions for making cupcakes:

Basic Cupcake Mix

The basic mixture for a cupcake recipe is the same as for many other large sponge cake recipes with the basic mixture consisting of

50g/2oz self raising flour

50g/2oz Caster sugar (superfine)

50g/2oz Butter or margarine (shortening)

1 Egg

These quantities are enough to make about 6 medium or 10 very small cupcakes, about 5cm/2-inches in diameter and can be doubled or trebled as required, however make sure to keep the same proportions of ingredients i.e. if you wish to treble it the amounts would be

150g/6oz Self Raising Flour

150g/6oz Caster Sugar (superfine)

150g/6oz Butter or Margarine (shortening)

3 eggs

Mixing the cupcake ingredients

Although the traditional method is to cream together the butter and sugar, then add the egg, mixing well, before adding the flour, good results can be achieved by just placing all the ingredients in the mixing bowl at the same time (with the exception of any additional fruit if using) as does mixing the cupcake ingredients in a food mixer or processor.

How much mixture to put in the cupcake paper case or tin

A level tablespoon in each paper case will make medium sized cupcakes about 7.5cm/3-inches in diameter. A heaped teaspoon of cupcake mixture in each paper case or cupcake hole will make small cupcakes about 5cm/2-inches in diameter. You can make larger and deeper cupcakes by placing more of the cupcake mixture in the cases or cupcake hole however, never fill the case or hole more than 2/3rds full.

At what oven temperature should cupcakes be cooked ?

In general 190C, 375F, Gas Mark 5 although if you have a fan assisted oven, you should reduce the temperature accordingly.

For how long should cupcakes be cooked?

If you are using the above guidelines or a heaped teaspoon of cupcake mixture per cake, 15 minutes should be long enough however, you can test whether the cupcake is cooked through by pushing a wooden toothpick into the centre. If it comes out clean, then the cupcake mixture has cooked through. If you decide to make slightly larger cupcakes, they will need an extra 5 minutes or so.

Decorating Cupcakes - How to decorate Cupcakes

Before you decorate your cupcakes, it is important to allow them to cool completely by removing them from the baking sheet or tin, and placing on a wire rack. Once cool, the options are endless, but here are just a couple of ideas for decorating cupcakes.

Light Glacé icing or frosting

Simply mix icing sugar (confectioners Sugar) with a very little water until the mixture is smooth but not too runny, then spread thinly over the tops of the cupcakes. Flavourings can be added to the icing mixture such as lemon, orange or coffee, as can colourings and you can sprinkle the icing with chocolate vermicelli, hundreds and thousands or small sweets before it sets on the cupcake. Click here for lots of Glace Icing Recipes.

Butter cream (butter icing)

Mix up your favourite butter cream flavour and spread or pipe on the tops of the cupcakes. Click here for lots of Butter Cream recipes. As with the simple icing above, further decorations can be pressed into the butter icing.

Fairy cake wings

Once the cupcakes are cold, cut a thin slice from the tops and cut them in half down the centre. Place a teaspoon of jam or butter cream (butter icing) on top of the cut surface of the cupcake then set the two cut pieces into the jam or butter cream at an angle to form wings.

Or, the simple way to make cupcakes:

Use any type cake recipe or purchase a good cake mix (your favorite flavor), purchase cup cake papers. If you don't have a muffin or cup cake baking pan, you can use a regular baking pan with sides at least two inches high.

Place the cup cake papers in the pan; if you're using a regular pan, place them thight enough for each to hold up the sides of the papers when you pour the batter into them. If the sides of the paper cups aren't supported, you will end up with giant cookies.

Mix the batter according to the recipe or the instructions on the box of mix. Pour it into the cup cake papers about half way filled. Bake according to the recipe or instructions. You can eat them warm, right out of the oven. Or, if you want to frost them be sure to let them cool thoroughly first and use any frosting that you like.

Oldsmobile Alero

Why would an alternator charge too much?

Alternators have two parts, one is the armature that generates electricity and the other is a voltage regulator. In most cars the typical output for an alternator is 13.2 to 14.4 volts. If their is more or less than this being produced, the voltage regulator may be faulty or the bushes may be worn.

another issue that some alternators have is the failure of the bearings inside the alternator leading to noisy running or the bearings inside the freewheeling pulley fitted to more and more modern alternators. these can often be replaced independently.

Why does the rainbow have so many colors?

Rainbows display every color in the visible spectrum of light. When sunlight hits rain droplets, it causes the light to scatter into each of its individual color components (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet). The same thing happens when light shines through a prism.

The rainbow's appearance is caused by dispersion of sunlight as it goes through raindrops. The light is first refracted as it enters the surface of the raindrop, reflected off the back of the drop, and again refracted as it leaves the drop. The overall effect is that the incoming light is reflected back over a wide range of angles with the most intense light at an angle of 40°–42°. The angle is independent of the size of the drop, but does depend on its refractive index. Seawater has a higher refractive index than rain water, so the radius of a 'rain' bow in sea spray is smaller than a true rainbow. This is visible to the naked eye by a misalignment of these bows. The amount by which light is refracted depends upon its wavelength, and hence its colour. Blue light (shorter wavelength) is refracted at a greater angle than red light, but because the area of the back of the droplet has a focal point inside the droplet, the spectrum crosses itself, and therefore the red light appears higher in the sky, and forms the outer colour of the rainbow. Contrary to popular belief, the light at the back of the raindrop does not undergo total internal reflection and some light does emerge from the back. However, light coming out the back of the raindrop does not create a rainbow between the observer and the sun because spectra emitted from the back of the raindrop do not have a maximum of intensity, as the other visible rainbows do, and thus the colours blend together rather than forming a rainbow.

When you use pure vanilla instead of imitation vanilla how much less do you use?

You should use the same amount as called for in the recipe.

According to Cooks Illustrated, imitation Vanilla has a *lot* more vanillin than real vanilla will have. Apparently, to be normal strength vanilla, you can only have so much vanilla.

There's double-strength vanilla, too, which is what I prefer to use.
