EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

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.

When cutting gumdrops, dip knife or kitchen scissors into water to keep from sticking.

Look for paper baking cups in festive colors and special designs at your supermarket, party store or paper warehouse.

If you'd like to display your bug cupcakes with some green coconut grass, place 2 cups shredded coconut in resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add about 8 drops green liquid food color; seal bag and shake to mix.
