I ever think of adding pork floss to muffin but never think that bak kwa can combine with muffin. :)

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Jessica,

You either use an ice-cream scoop or judge by the height of the batter in the muffin cup.

Aunty Yochana said...

HI elaine,

it's a sign of overstirring causing it to turn smooth then when you bake, it turned hard.

Hi Jan,

You must wait for the cupcakes to be completely cooled before you store away in a container.

These Look fanatsic!

Just wondering where you get your muffin cups from. I live in Australia. Any idea where I can get them online?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Tyla,

I got these muffin cups from Singapore. Not sure where to get in Australia. Which part of OZ are yu in?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Sally

Cupcakes are small little cakes while muffins are more dense and bready.

Dear Aunty,

Thanks so much for sharing!
A question about cupcake n muffin:
Is it normal for it to shrink after baking? Do we need to remove from the cup after baking?

Rdgs,
Yen Li

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Yen Li

Shrinking of the cupcakes could be due to bad quality papercups or muffin cups. Or...it could be the wrong muffin cups too. Don't use the waxy type for cupcakes.
