While they are always sweet, they are certainly not all the same in consistency, mouth feel and richness. Cupcakes will vary in texture based on the ingredients, or batter, used to bake these beauties. Let’s consider some batters: Butter Cupcakes: Most baked goods possess a fat element of some sort. Typically, the fat element is butter or shortening. The butter cupcakes are obviously of the butter persuasion. The batter for butter cupcakes will be rich, as butter is a natural and rich fat. Butter is creamed with sugar and eggs and slowly married with the flour mixture to create a dense and delicious cake. Egg-Leavened Cupcakes: The egg-leavened cupcakes are divorced from any fat element. Instead, they receive their volume from stiffly beaten egg whites. Think sponge or angel food cake. These cakes are of the lighter consistency, both texturally and with regard to caloric intake. One-Bowl Cupcakes: The name of these kinds of cupcakes should suggest the method for baking. With all ingredients in one bowl, the one-bowl cakes are made with shortening as the essential fat. The fat solids in shortening allow for the cupcakes to be mixed easily and well, producing an airy cupcake for the mindful eater. Chiffon Cupcakes: The chiffon cupcakes are a delightful combination of butter and egg-leavened cupcakes. Utilizing both egg yolks and whites, in addition to the fat element of butter or shortening, the chiffon cupcakes are often used in the gourmet scene. It is obvious that cupcakes are regarded in high esteem, considering all of the many wonders associated with their existence. Whether you’re eating homemade cupcakes which you consider the best cupcakes ever, or even a store-bought treat, cupcakes are a food practice that satisfy even the sourest of individuals. Eat a cupcake and you will certainly consider this sweet delight one of the best treats to eat at any time.

Now coming with handles, and perfectly sized can make the look more attractive. With my son, I would not send anything I expected him to return with. So, a cardboard box usually made do. What is nicer at a party than a good looking, festive table? A cake stands alone. Cupcakes can be displayed in so many appealing ways. The latest hit is the cupcake stand. This can be store bought, which comes as a basic stand, or color coordinated. If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can always stack small boxes on top of larger boxes, place several boxes around the table, or even one large box. To color coordinate, you can find wrap paper to match. They can be very elaborate.

But that doesn’t mean just the plain vanilla or chocolate cupcake with regular icing. Today’s cupcakes come in many new varieties and flavor combinations, many exotic and exciting. Think of a peanut butter and jam cupcake topped with maple cream icing. Or how about a cappuccino cupcake with Grand Marnier frosting. Those are just a couple examples of cupcake creations that you can bake in your own home. Along with the great new tastes offered in cupcake recipes, the way the cupcakes are topped and decorated are new and trendy as well. The simple swirl of icing on the top of a cupcake just doesn’t cut it anymore. Although many good cupcakes are simple ones, today’s cupcake maker wants to go above and beyond the norm and offer truly beautiful cupcakes with unusual and highly decorative toppings.

Just be sure to use fresh and natural ingredients, such as butter and fresh fruit instead of margarine and frozen.

You can buy fabric versions of the cupcake party game, but I always love a home-made copy that the children can help decorate. Draw a large cupcake on a sheet of large paper and decorate with lots of color and sparkles. This is a fun game and perfect for your cupcake theme party. I always find my children love coloring the cupcake as much as they like playing the game. Decorating the game could also become a party activity. When you want to keep the little guests occupied, get them to frost and decorate their own cupcakes. Make a batch of cupcakes, have bowls of different coloured frosting and a variety of sprinkles, candies and edible toppers and let the kids go wild! They can either eat their cupcake immediately or take it home with them. If you are planning to serve cupcakes as the birthday cake and don’t want to decorate them as a party game as well, make cookies in a cupcake shape (using a cupcake cookie cutter) and the children can decorate them instead. My children love painting plaster shapes. Cupcake shaped moulds are readily available, so make up some shapes prior to the party and let the children paint. Supply acrylic paints and have a range of glitter, beads, sequins etc to adhere to their faux cupcakes. My daughter and her friends love painting these and the finished results look spectacular and are really individual.

Usually cupcakes are baked at 350° F (adjust for high altitude) and for around 23 minutes, give or take a few. Use the toothpick test. As with other cakes, always cool completely before decorating. Loose crumbs should be brushed off gently before icing. Smooth icing with a knife and short strokes. Leave smooth or pipe a frosty swirl on top, depending how you want to decorate.

Some of the most popular cupcake decorations are grated coconut, gum drops, piped flowers and figures, shaved chocolate, whimsical designs created with candies - and of course sprinkles. Filling Cupcakes to fill a cupcake, cut out a cone from the top. Then place a teaspoon of filling inside. Before replacing the top, cut off its cone (since the space it filled is not filled with filling). Cupcake Cakes also called pull-apart cakes, these are perfect for birthday parties and youth events. Each guest pulls off a cupcake. Serving’s a cinch and clean-up’s, well a piece of cake. And a great plus with little ones - everyone gets the same size serving! You can sculpt a cupcake cake into just about any shape you can imagine: numbers (for birthday ages), sports (footballs, team logos and names, etc.) holiday figures, flowers, Easter baskets and bunnies, cats and dogs, well you get the picture. The shape doesn’t have to be exact (and probably won’t), but the decorating will add the realism. Here’s how it works: Bake cupcakes in double liners (for extra strength). Arrange baked cupcakes on a covered, sturdy cake board. Play around with this until you get the shape you want. Staggering works best, and keep them close together. Dab icing onto the bottoms of the cupcake liners, returning them as you do to their original positions. The icing will, once it dries, help hold the cupcakes in position. Crumb-coat. This is optional. Thin some icing or make a glaze. Spread over all the cupcakes. Crumbs will show, but that’s ok. When it dries, the crumbs won’t be swept up into your final coat of icing. When the crumb coat has dried, smooth your regular icing over the whole cupcake cake Decorate.
