Devil’s Food Cupcake


Hi hi! Teddy here and here is my first post! Mommy and Daddy talk about this Show, Semi-Homemade, and I’m here to show you how easy it is to make something delicious, satisfying, and pretty! The process starts with Devil’s food Cake Mix from Duncan Hines and prepare as the package suggests! But follow the directions carefully, you don’t want to over-beat the batter! An over-beaten batter makes cupcakes stiff! You want your guests to love your cupcakes!

One box should have enough for about 18 regular sized cupcakes. Once you have filled your pans to 2/3 the size of the cup (Don’t forget the papers before you pour it in!), give the pans some tapping so any air bubbles that are trapped come to the surface. Make sure your oven is preheated and cook as the box says. Start with the lowest time for the length. Your nose will tell you when it is getting close to being done!

When the timer goes off the first time, poke a few of the cupcakes with a toothpick. Cupcakes are done when the pick comes out clean! Still have bits on the pick? Leave it in the oven for a few minutes more!

Now they are done, put the trays on a cooling rack or heating pad for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile, take some strawberries, not too large, but not too small, and cut thin slices from those strawberries width-wise so it has those pretty looking heart shapes! (Well, not really, because you have to cut off the tops, too, but you get the idea!) Put a cupcake in the center of a tea saucer, sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar, and surround the cupcake with the slices! Enjoy! I hope you liked my post! Bye!
