Cuppies lesson 2 :)

Today I decided to test my cupcake baking again. Chose a carrot cake recipe (my favourite) from Wilton's "Cupcake Fun!" book to try. I simply love that book!

Filled the paper cups 1/2 full and happily put them into my new oven to bake. This time I remembered to set the temperature to a little higher.

The cupcakes turn out moist and yummy, not too sweet. However, the height is still not very desirable. So my lesson learnt this round is, whenever I try a new recipe next time, I must remember to put one cup to bake first and see how high it can rise.

Baked cupcakes...don't look like they've risen though they taste ok...

Next I try my hands on frosting, cream cheese icing to match the carrot cake. Did the Wilton recipe, but 1/3 portion. My goodness! It's very very sweet! Personally I find it too sweet, especially for kids. And my icing turns out a little runny. So I can only draw little designs on my petite cuppies...lol...
