Halloween is the season of celebration and wonders! There is a sense of spookiness and thrill hanging in the air as we all gear up for the celebration of the holidays! Packed with joy, jubilance, and excitement, every year all of us eagerly wait for the Halloween holidays to come over!
Whether you are hosting a party or heading to one, planning to give a token of love to your friends, or offering a seasonal greeting to the neighbors, cupcakes are something that suits every mood, occasion, and reason! Today we will learn to make cupcakes for Halloween! So let's go!
No matter what kind of recipe you are following, it is a universal law that all ingredients must be present at room temperature! There is a reason behind that! You do not want your mixture to become lumpy and difficult to blend, do you?
Then always follow the instructions as it is mentioned in the recipes. For example, you should bring out the eggs from the refrigerator about an hour before you mix the ingredients and the same goes for butter! Hard and cold butter is difficult to cream and eggs simply fail to make your cupcakes fluffy and light if you add them cold to the mixing bowl.
- Pro-tip- in case you forget, then dip the cold eggs in a bowl of lukewarm water for five minutes and that will do the job. You can aim to slightly melt the butter in the pan before you add it to the bowl.
Often we hear in the instructions column that we are advised against overmixing or undermixing! This is because both are detrimental to the texture of the cupcakes! Undermixing can make your cupcakes runny with lumps while overmixing can turn it to become chewy and hard.
Both are something that you do not want after putting in so much effort! Overmixing activates the gluten and turns them to become chewy which you can avoid by blending the ingredients just right! Mix all the ingredients until they are totally smooth but do not overdo the job.
If you want your cupcakes to acquire the proper size and shape then you need to line your cupcakes properly! Sometimes we go ahead with papery and thin cupcake liners assuming they are alright!
But after brushing with oil, if the cupcake liners turn out too soft and wet, then it will not be able to hold the shape of the cupcake well and it will topple over. Hence you must purchase good quality cupcake liners for your cupcakes.
How much should you fill your cupcake pans?
Filling cupcake pans right up to the brim is not right! This is because of exposure to heat and during the process of baking, the cupcake dough will rise and it will soon topple over or acquire a flat mushroom top! The ideal system of filling the cupcakes is up to ¾ th the given size of the cup! This will enable your cupcakes to rise properly and spread well! Filling it too little is also not ideal as the cupcakes will not rise in this case either.
Now, that is more or less a couple of things that you need to learn before you bake cupcakes! Here are some amazing Halloween cupcake ideas that you can try out this season!
