EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

One lemon will yield 2 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 1/2 to 3 teaspoons of grated lemon peel. You can freeze extra lemon juice and peel separately for another use.

To purchase the filigree shown on the cupcakes, go to www.fancyflours.com and search cupcake wrappers.

An easy way to hull strawberries is to push one end of a plastic drinking straw into the point of the berry and push it through to pop off the green cap.

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.
