Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why would I need to cream together the eggs and sugar?
A: Creaming together these ingredients gives the cupcakes a light and airy texture. Additionally, it binds all the ingredients together, making them easier to mix.

Q: Are there any special considerations when adding the oil?
A: Yes, it’s important to add the oil slowly as you mix on low speed; this helps to ensure it’s evenly dispersed. Any sudden increase in speed could result in lumps of oil appearing in the mixture.

Q: Why are the cupcakes cooled before they are frosted?
A: Cooling the cupcakes ensures that the frosting will set properly and doesn’t melt due to the still-warm cupcakes.

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 light sugar (or cane sugar)
