1A small cake baked in a cup-shaped container and typically iced.
- My daughter and I made the reindeer cupcakes: chocolate fairy cakes with a chocolate icing and a glacé cherry for a nose and chocolate antlers, and gave them to her friends along with a Christmas card, much to their delight.
- Honestly you're not missing much else: the cupcake tasted like flavorless cake with whipped butter on top.
- Bake the cupcakes in the middle of the oven until a toothpick or thin knife inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes.
