Birthday cupcakes are the perfect combination of muffins, cupcakes and large ordinary birthday cakes. When trying birthday cupcakes you do not expect the taste of plain cake with no filler, as they say appearance should match the contents. Cupcakes for children’s birthday should contains lighter ingredients and limited amount of sugar and chocolate. We should include fruits, light and lovely creams and use as possible as little frosting. Another option is to reduce the size of the filling at the expense of the decoration.

There are countless categories and recipes – vanilla, chocolate, with nuts, fruit, juicy, with different fillings, in the form of small cakes,  small dough baskets filled with different fillings and so on.

Each type has a specific technique of mixing the dough. Less sugar and butter will make cupkaes more like bread. More sugar and butter will make the taste closer to the cake. When you know what kind of muffins you want to try, choosing recipes becomes much easier.

The perfect cupcakes should be light for its size and when cut, the inside should be moist and tender without tunnels. Most delicious the cupcakes are on the day they are made. The muffins must be removed from the seal or the bottom will be wet. But if they are filled with cream or jam, leave them for a few minutes in the seals. Sometimes muffins are baked in the pan with paper cups. Their advantage is that they make cleaning easier and keep the moisture of muffins. They protect them from excessive drying. If you like your muffins with a crust, do not use baking paper.

Usually for birthday cupcakes we use colorful paper, ribbons, small candies, toppings, sticks, colored icing or cream, sprinkles.

Here is one basic muffin case:

2 cups flour
4 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup warm milk
1/4 lb. butter, melted and cooled slightly



The liquid ingredients and dry ingredients should be mixed separately. When two mixtures are ready you can put them together. Do not mix to much, stir only until the flour is moistened. Cover the muffins trays with paper baskets and distribute the mixture evenly between them. Fill about 3 / 4 of the size of the cups.
Bake about 20 minutes at preheated oven at 180C,  you can check if they are ready with wooden stick - put in the middle, it should come out dry.
