How about a thread to seriously discuss making cupcakes????? - Page 762

post #11416 of 11576
I've seen many mentions of Bettercream (or Bettercreme-not sure which spelling) and also Pastry Pride. Are they the same? Where do you buy it? I'm in Henderson, NV, near Las Vegas. Thanx for any help!

Well, it just seems that my cakes were too oily with the oil and tends to hold together better without it and the original WASC doesn't even call for it. I think the sour cream makes them moist enough. I might substitute an egg white for one of the eggs next time though and see if it will make them fluffier. Ina Garten says her baking got better when she added extra large eggs. I only use large eggs, only because they're always on sale, but did add the extra 4th one. I added extra water because the pulp tends to make the mango cupcake more muffin like otherwise.

The jalapeno mango cake turned out good! Not an overly sweet cake at all. It has a nice tartness to it actually. It takes a few steps but is a nice change and something different. The jalapenos combined with the sugar takes out the heat...................



I'm going to be making mini-cupcakes and sell them as "Poppers" at an upcoming festival....when I read about your jalapeno mango cake, I thought perfect...Jalapeno Poppers...!! But how would it be without the mango...?? I would love to be able to have a jalapeno cupcake....?? Any ideas how to tweak the recipe to do just jalapeno and have it taste good...if not, how would jalapeno-mango poppers sound...??

Yes, you can just use your favorite vanilla, white or yellow recipe and toss some candied jalapenos in. Make some cream cheese frosting and toss a few in that too! Otherwise, any fruit pairs up well with jalapenos. Berries, plums, cherries, pretty much any fruit goes well!
Great idea with the poppers and making them minis! thumbs_up.gif

Off topic here, bu I just started reading this thread the other day and I'm up to page 40. What a wonderful bunch of people here and a wealth of information and fantastic recipes and ideas. Is there an easy way to get back to where I leave off each day without having to inch my way through next page, next page, next page?

Easiest way is to bookmark it, or check your computer history for the previous day.

I buy pastry pride and it is awesome you will love it! I am in Utah so I'm not sure where they would sell it in Vegas but I do know you can buy big tubs of prewhipped bettercream at Sam's Club...the one by me said it would be about 37.00 but it has TONS in it. People have suggested scooping out 2 c portions in baggies and freezing it all...hth

Thanks Grandma G for the Jalapeno Mango recipe---sounds really good!!! This will be one I will bring into work for the crew.

I am going to try a banana cupcake recipe this week and somehow incorporate chocolate and peanut butter----I've seen the same sort of cupcakes called "Elvis Cupcakes". I'm also putting together in my head a peach cobbler cupcake recipe......Once I decide what I'm doing I will put the recipe and pictures (if the picture problem has been fixed)..... thanks again for sharing......
