I haven't made cupcakes before and I am making 24 for a 1 yr old b-day party this weekend. The mom wants half chocolate and half yellow. Does anyone know a good recipe for yellow cupcakes. Is there anything special I need to know about making cupcakes. I am planning on using DH box mixes and adding pudding to them and maybe an extra egg? Also, I need them to be rounded on top b/c they will be ladybugs. I would really appreciate any advice I can get. Thanks.

I don't know that I can help you on the recipe part. I use DH mixes and don't alter them when I make cupcakes. As for making sure they're round on top, I'd just fill them at least 2/3 full (maybe just a tad more). They should rise perfectly. Many people try their best to figure out how to make them more flat.

Hi - Cupcakes work the same way cake does, if you have a fav yellow cake recipe use that - here is the link for the WASC recipe from kakelady:

many rave about it, I have yet to try it but I am going to.

To get your cupcakes to dome more fill liner 2/3 full. Preheat you oven to 400 degrees and bake the cc's for 5 minutes at 400 then turn down oven to 350 and bake for approx 13 more minutes, check them because different batters cook differently. As soon as a toothpick stuck in the center of one comes out clean remove them.
