EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Use sugared edible flowers to garnish these cupcakes.

You'll get more lemon juice from a room-temperature lemon than from a cold one.

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.
