Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
For very white-on-white cupcakes, use Betty Crocker® Whipped whipped cream frosting instead of the vanilla frosting.
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.
