I have a big tub full of pretty cupcake cases, I only used to be able to get pretty ones from the internet but since Bake Off I can now find them in my local supermarket.
I use a mixer all the time for my cakes now as its so much easier and I get more consistent cakes. The real problem I have is getting the mix into the cases without making a mess. I used to add the mix to a jug and then fill up the cases but since then I've found an easier solution.
As you can see from the above photo I use an ice cream scoop to fill the cases up. The scoop makes things there are even amounts of mix in each case.
Tomorrow I can show you the decorated cakes.
