How To Tell If Your Cupcakes Are Done

Easiest sure fire way is to stick a tooth pick in it.

Obviously, if you keep your toothpicks in uber cute tooth pick holders than this task is made so much more pleasant. Like my little piggy that i found in NYC. I brought him home with me, and now he lives with my baking stuff. I kind of want to eat him. (Don't tell him though.)

I start stalking all my cupcakes around minute 15 and when they look good i stick a toothpick in the center of the cupcake. If the tooth pick comes out clean than i take them out. If the toothpick has batter in it, than i leave them be.

This is what a "clean" toothpick looks like. A few cupcake crumbs, but no wet batter to dirty the wood.

Also, in lighter colored cupcakes check for just the edges turning golden brown and pulling way from the side of the liners. They should be done then too.
