As I’ve got more into baking and making, I seem to spend more and more time on the internet looking for hints, tips and generally learning about cake!
A great resource that I’ve found is www.wilton.com for everything cake related. If you are a beginner or well advanced and just looking for some inspiration you are sure to find something on this site. A few minutes here can turn into hours so beware!
As I’m in search for the perfect cupcake, the Wilton vanilla cupcake recipe didn’t pass me by without trying it! I had a go and they came out OK but not the best that I’ve seen or tasted. I like using the American method of ‘cups’ as measurements but not sure that it works the best in this instance. There are plenty of other recipes that I will give a try in the future. Here’s their recipe:
Vanilla Cupcakes (Makes 24ish)
- 3 cups cake flour sifted
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup butter or margarine softened
- 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups milk
