Best Kept Secret Tips to Bake the Perfect Cupcake: Step 5

Bake the Perfect Cupcake: Step 5

5. Pre-heat, and then take the temperature.

It certainly goes without saying that you ought to preheat your oven, but I will say it anyway: preheat your oven!

If you put your cupcakes in before the oven is ready, it will mess up their baking process. Also, ovens can be finicky. Invest in a good oven thermometer, and then use it! Double-check the temperature of your oven before you put your cupcakes in. Old ovens can be especially rotten when it comes to sticking to a definite temperature, so make sure the internal temperature matches the number on your oven dial.

I once had an oven so old that all the temperature numbers had rubbed off of the dial – baking was basically a terrible guessing game. An oven thermometer can take all of the guesswork out of mysteriously over or undercooked cupcakes and ensure total control over the baking process.

I’m Julie. This is where my love of cupcakes, digital photography as well as writing comes to life! How did this recipe thing all begin? In November of 2012, I made the decision that I needed to keep a log of my recipes, so I started a simple recipe blog. This beautiful collection of cupcakes and cafe delights continues to grow every week and I can’t wait to see where it is 5 years down the road. My grandma encouraged all of my baking. At family gatherings with well over 250 individuals the midst of absolutely no where, she consistently was able to create perfect cherry cobblers along with other goodies for dessert over the campfire. It seemed to be like magic for me.
