Does anyone have a favorite website or book for cupcake recipes? I've been finding recipes by searching google but I'd like to find a tried and true collection of good, moist cupcakes! I'm expecially looking for cupcakes that stay moist for 2-3 days.
This is my favorite site for recipes. I love that a lot of them are rated by other CCers, and often, you can learn tips from other posters in the comments below the recipes. If you haven't spent some time under the "recipes" tab of this site, I'd encourage you do so. It's a great resource!
Unfortunately I have a terrible time with the search function on any area of CC. I almost always get error messages or can't get past the first page of results, so I'm hoping to find some other options.
I never search the internet for recipes. I do search for combinations, decorations, and flavors. The internet is full of bad recipes and I attribute it to so many bakers giving up on scratch baking.
I am a follower and student of the great pastry chefs of today. I read their books like textbooks to understand their style of baking. From there, I focus on the chef's specialties , copy it once, then start altering. I never want to copy someone, but it is the best plan for new scratch bakers. These chefs are complete in their instructions, which insures a good outcome.
Awhile back, I posted a list of books and authors who are considered the best in their field by their peers. If anyone would like that list, pm me.
