What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  1. Avoid overmixing the batter, as this can result in dense cupcakes rather than light and fluffy ones.
  2. Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature to ensure proper emulsification and aeration of the batter.
  3. Do not overbake the cupcakes, as they can dry out quickly if left in the oven for too long.
  4. Be careful not to overfill the cupcake liners, as this can cause them to overflow while baking.
  5. Always allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting to prevent the frosting from melting and sliding off.
