making vanilla and chocolate cupcake to dome

Hi there,

I have tried both the vanilla and chocolate recipes that you have provided. I am happy using it in making cakes because of the flatness. And from this, I am not wasting too much cake as I won’t need to trim it. But when it comes to cupcakes that I need for making decorated ones, I couldn’t make it dome even a bit. How could I make the cupcake achieve the perfect dome that I want.

Thanks and Regards,



Hello Lovelybandal

I put a little more mix into the cases and raise the baking temperature up slightly, that makes them dome. Hope this helps.


thanks. i’ll try it and get back to you about the result. happy new year 🙂
