Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Make your fun Spring Baskets even cuter! Pick up fun foil or fancifully decorated muffin cup liners at cake decorating or party supply stores.
To make basket handles the same size, use the handle from the first basket to measure the length for the rest.
Add blueberry licorice twists for a multi-color handle.
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.
