Hi! With the recipe I use, very similar to WASC, I do not get a hump on my cupcakes. And I want to try doing cupcakes dipped in poured fondant but It looks cutest on a humped cupcake. Does anyone have a good recipe for cake that will give me humped cupcakes. Thanks for any and all help! usaribbon.gif

Try baking at a higher temperature. That will make the center rise.

Thanks! I will give that a try. Currently I only bake at 325.

when i baked at 325 my cupcakes rose way too high AND then they sunk and overflowed all over the place.

i tried a recipe given to me recently and it domes pretty well. If i add more batter to the pan, it still domes and doesn't overflow. i'm in love it.

I too am trying to perfect cupcakes but with no luck. I have tried 3 recipes that either didn't dome at all or sank when they cooled. I will try he recipe referred to here in the thread ASAP. Would anyone else who is successful with cupcakes share the recipes that they use? I would like a really dense and solid cupcake that will stand up to different decorating techniques. Thanks for sharing!!!
