This is the most basic vanilla cupcake recipe.
It is the simplest, easiest and fastest to make, and is a base cupcake that works for any frosting or decorating you wish to carry out. These basics are a must have in every repertoire of baking recipes. Once done and completely cooled, you can top with your choice of frosting (recipe links below). You can also top the frosting with chocolate shavings, rainbow sprinkles or even fruit toppings…. The possibilities are endless.
Since we are talking basics, and since the best thing about cupcakes is how easy they are to frost and decorate. You truly don’t have to be a master cake decorator to serve beautiful cupcakes. I have included for you a fun video demonstrating 4 basic cupcake piping techniques that will transform your basic cupcakes to ones just as beautiful as those you would buy from a specialty cupcake store! There is really not much to it, watch and see for yourself.
Remember, practice makes perfect and most importantly enjoy learning. Good things always come out of just that 🙂
