Selamat bertemu kembali. I know some of us are very interested about learning and making cupcakes but not all of us have got the opportunity to sign up for a formal courses. But the great thing is, there's a lot of story about making and decorating cupcakes on the website or books too. All u got to do is just look for the good recipe and try it out. Try & error is one of the best tools in learning process.
Here are some of the interesting tutorials & lessons for cupcake beginnner. Well, as beginner (from my own experience)it's not enough to bake a cake by just following the recipe from the books n websites. Not everyone can bake cake from the same recipe. According to my 1st guru (& after my own experiment too), There are 2 very critical aspects of baking cupcakes which should be given attention :
1 - Moisture in recipe ratios
2 - Oven temperatures
Then what else u need to make your cake taste even better n look good?..confidence? creativity? joy? fun?...yg penting hati mestilah ikhlas...betul tak?
For newbie, there's plenty of video lesson available online too. One of the sites that i always look for an ideas is Youtube, but i often visits Videojug.com. Lagipun videojug mempunyai video lesson yg di buat secara lebih professinal oleh individu2 yg profesional, so nampak mudah dan senang di ikuti. Moreover, u can also get the full recipe and method of doing it by clicking at the text version menu.
Hope u anjoy it as much as i do. Opps... b4 u see the video, this is my classic recipe for vanilla/Butter cupcake :
3/4cups caster sugar
2 eggs (large)
1 tsp vanilla essence(if not using any other)
1 1/2 cup self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup milk (more if neccesary)
Note : U can add any fav flavor, nuts, fruits, ect.
- Heat your oven at 170-180 deg.
- Beat sugar and butter till pale and fluffy.
- Add in essences and eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
- Fold in sifted flour+baking powder alternately with milk in 3 portions till well incorporated.
- Spoon into cupcake liners.
- Bake for 15-20 mins. Tadaaaaa Done!........Happy baking.
