Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Reynolds StayBrite Baking Cups are fashion-inspired designs that won’t fade during baking.
  • tip 2
    Try a Braeburn apple in this cupcake recipe, or another crisp, sweet-tart apple such as Gala or Cortland.
  • tip 3
    Instead of sprinkling salt on the frosted cupcakes, try chopped salted peanuts.
