Expert Tips

  • Garnish cupcakes with banana-shaped candies. Look for them in the candy aisle of the supermarket.
  • Try using a 2-inch metal scoop to put the perfect amount of cake batter into each muffin cup.
  • If you have brown bananas left over, you can freeze them to use for later. Simply peel, slice into pieces, place on a baking sheet and freeze. Once the banana pieces are frozen, you can transfer them to an airtight zip-top bag and store in the freezer until you’re ready to use them.
