Expert Tips

Garnish cupcakes with banana-shaped candies. Look for them in the candy aisle of the supermarket.

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
