EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

These cupcakes are best eaten the day they’re made.

Try experimenting with different varieties of beer to change the flavor of your cupcake. Cooking with beer is fun!

If you don’t have a candy thermometer, you can check if the sugar syrup has reached the firm-ball stage by dropping a small amount of the mixture into a cup of very cold water; if it forms a firm ball that holds its shape when pressed, it’s ready to be added to the egg whites.
