Everytime I make cupcakes they come out pretty good, except that I would like them to have that nice little crusty edge where they have spilled over the cupcake liner and they form a nice little done. I find that this edge acts like a nice shelf so I can put more icing on them, but I can't fingure out how to get that edge! I've tried filling them with more batter but they never turn out right. Does anyone have any tips?
Are you talking about a muffin top?
YES! I'll change my subject line to read that as well, just for clarification
Hmm, I don't think I can edit the title anymore. But yes, how do I get my cupcakes to have a muffin top? Do I need a different pan?
No, you don't need a different top. You need to fill them just a little bit more so that they start to rise over the top a bit. Not too much or they start looking a little weird.
I agree, the only way is to fill it up a little more. There are also muffin pans made for those.
I HATE it when my cuppies do that! LOL! Try starting with a thinner batter...my recipes that are less thick always seem to do the runover shelf thing.
