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.

Like chocolate and mint? Use devil's food cake mix and add 1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract to the batter for a fun flavor change.
