I just finished baking 30 little chocolate cupcakes in my oven toaster.You would think I have atleast 2 muffin pans on hand.. No, not even one! If you’re like me, don’t despair. With only a cupcake liner and a cardboard and of course your cupcake batter, you can bake yourself cupcakes too!
How did i come up with the idea? Well, I wanted to try baking cupcakes but don't have a muffin pan yet as I was still in the process of completing my baking tools. But this little brain of mine did its magic. It just dawned on me to why not make a wall on the cupcake liners so they wont flatten when filled with batter. I had these little butterflies in my stomach that time, I was sooooo excited to try the idea…. I immediately put it to test. The moment I took a peep on my little oven and saw the cupcakes coming to life, I felt extremely happy. Now, here’s how i did it.
A) Measure the height of the sides of the cupcake liner divide by two. That would be the width of the cardboard.
B) Measure the circumference of the cupcake liner base. Give an allowance, we aim for looser fit here. I usually go up by 1/4″ to 1/2″ from the base depending on the size of the cupcake liner, that’s where i usually take my measurement.
By the way, the cupcake liners I have used in this post cost 13 pesos a hundred piece. Though they’re cheap, they’re not pretty. To solve this little concern, you can make yourself a cupcake wrapper to dress up your cupcake. With DIY cupcake wrappers, you can choose what paper to use, color, design and even include inscriptions like happy birthday, happy anniversary or i love u's, your choice. I have blogged about it in this link. Now create yourself some really lovely cupcakes for different occasions! :)
