Expert Tips

Use a small star decorating tip for hair on these scary monsters.

If you only have 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 pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to bake time.
