Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
If you have Betty Crocker® decorating icing (in 4.25-oz tubes), use the writing tip to pipe swimsuits on the bears.
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.
