You should also pre-heat before putting the batches. See instructions came with your oven to know what temperature to set for baking.
Correct baking time is as important as putting the right ingredients and preparation. Using kitchen timers will lead to good cupcakes.

Paper Baking Cups
You must put the paper baking cups first on the baking pans before you pour the cupcake batter. These made of wax materials are what holds your soft and chewy cupcakes in place and make to look good. They come in various colors and designs as well.
Measuring Cups and Spoons
A correct balance and measurement of cupcake ingredients is important especially for beginners and for those who sell cupcakes. Just the right amount of parts and ingredients can yield favorable batches of goodies. Learn about the conversion for tablespoon, cups, ounces, and more.
Needless to say, this is where you put and mix the cupcake ingredients to create fillings. Batter bowls come in stainless steel, glass, and plastic. Choose the one that contains the spatters, doesn’t slide on the counter, and is easy for you to use.
In mixing the ingredients well, a hand mixer is pretty helpful. Start at soft speed then transition to medium speed once you can control, to completely mix the batter. Choose a hand mixer that’s simple to use and easy to clean.
Piping Bag, Spatula, and Pastry Brush
These are actually optional but great to have if you want your cupcakes to look more enticing. The pastry brush wipes off loose crumbs on top of the cupcakes and moisturizes it with syrup if you want. Spatulas are used to spread batters or fillings and decorate the cupcake. The piping bag is used to apply frosting, icing, toppings, and decorate the pastry.
As a general rule, the place where you prepare your food should be clean at most times. Sanitation not only with food but also with ourselves should be followed. Having wet and dry paper towels around, wearing an apron to minimize the stains on your clothes, and having tea towels nearby to wipe your messy hands are the key to a cleaner baking space. You can also use the fresh towels in covering the baked cupcakes. You can easily hold the kitchen towel in place anywhere by using our Omnihook Towel Dish Cloth Holder. Be sure, though, to change your kitchen towels often as they breed bacteria if used longer.
