Important Recipe Tips:
- When measuring your flour make sure your not scooping directly from the bag. This can cause inaccurate measurements and your recipe may not turn out. Use a spoon to scoop the flour from the bag to the measuring cup and level it off with the back end of a knife.
- Make sure to use a good quality cupcake liner so that your cupcakes don’t stick to your wrapper. I like to use Wilton’s Cupcake Liners. I buy mine at Joann Fabrics.
- For how to fill the cupcake with sprinkles: I cut a circle out of the top of the cupcake. To do this I actually used a piping tip and gently pushed it down into the center of the cooled cupcake then removed it. I filled the center well with my sprinkles of choice then capped it with the piece of cake I removed. I’m adding a photo in the recipe notes.
