Cupcakes are always a great addition to dessert tables, bake sales and school lunches. Typically cupcakes use the same basic ingredients as do cakes with butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Most any recipe that works for a layer cake can be used to bake cupcakes. The cake batter used for cupcakes may be flavored or have other ingredients stirred in, such as berries, nuts, or chocolate chips. The small size of a cupcake make it more efficient for heat conduction, so making them bake is much quicker than a normal layered cake would take. Cupcakes may be topped with all sorts of tasty frostings and cake decorations. They may be filled with yummy frostings, fruits, or pastry creams. Some bakers will insert a pastry bag in the middle of the cupcake to add fillings. Elaborately decorated cupcakes may be made for special occasions, such as birthday parties, and any holiday.
