Cakes on the list

There are always time for baking cakes. Any kind of cakes are good enough to bake, as long as you want to. There are always recipes that you fall back on, and new ones which you put them in your "To Bake" list. For me, I have more of the latter than the former. Sometimes, I just want to try new recipes. Other times, I just want to "play safe". Whatever it is, both will derived satisfaction equally.



Last weekend, I didn't manage to do any baking as I attended a full three days workshop. I only managed to catch up on some bakings yesterday. I baked marble pound cakes and Oreo Cupcakes. The Oreo cupcakes were extracted from Yochana's Blog with modification. I'm glad it turned out good. I wrapped them up and let my son bring them to school to give away to his teachers and friends. This is the last week of school. They'll get their well-deserved holidays soon. Boy I'm so happy too!

Hi Jane.

I found your blog out of the blue and now I cannot get my eyes off the oreo cupcakes. I'm planning to get it done over the weekend.

Question:
The cupcakes which you have done are mini size. So let's say I would like to make normal sized cupcakes, I'm pretty sure it'll be less that 60pcs (which is perfectly fine). But how long should i bake them for? Double the time, i.e. 28min?

Thanks.
Casey

Hi Casey,
To bake the cupcake to normal size, you might need to bake for about 25mins. Once you see the top browned, you might want to use a skewer to test if it's done. If not, continue for 2 mins interval and check.
I hope this helps. Have a good Oreo weekend! :)
