AHey all! :) I have a question of ya guys. Every time I bake my cupcakes, I almost always get this brown edge around the top of the cupcake. It is nowhere near burnt, so it's not over baking them. Or the temperature. I just was wondering if you guys had any suggestions as to what I can do to prevent it? Thanks!

Maybe if you baked on a lower rack?

Are your muffin pans dark? If so they will make the edges that touch them when baking get darker.

FYI - Overbaking means the product spent too much time in the oven. If the oven temp was low during that bake time, products can look acceptable but still be too dry and overbaked. As an example, if cupcakes were baked for 40 minutes at 325 degrees F, they would taste dry but may look fine.

That's interesting Mimi, I  don't bake mine for that long & have not had a problem with dryness but appreciate knowing that now. Thanks;-D
