Perfect cupcakes start with perfect cupcake cases – you can buy the ones I use here:

Why are my cupcakes pointy? Why are my cupcakes sunken in the middle? My cupcakes are dry and crumbly. They’re heavy and stodgy. WHAT’S WRONG WITH MY CUPCAKES? If you have found yourself constantly asking yourself these questions after baking cupcakes then I am going to break it down for you. In this video I’m going to show you what could be going wrong with your cupcakes and how you can make sure you are doing it right. Perfect, even, soft, moist, fluffy, flat, delicious cupcakes are in your future!

You will need…
A notepad and a pen and a bit of patience!

Also helpful to note…

All the examples in this video (except those mentioned) were baked at 170°C in a fan assisted oven. Please consult your oven manual for conversions (or Google it!)

All the cupcakes were made using my Perfect Vanilla Cupcake Recipe:

I am going to talk A LOT! But I promise I will teach you something!

You may need to adjust temps and times to suit your equipment and your situation but keep your eye on the look of my batter and what I say and you won’t steer too wrong.

  11. Stay Honey says:

    Wish I watched this before I made my 3 layer cake earlier

  12. Belinda T says:

    Hi Jemma! I wanted to ask where I went wrong if my cupcake liners peel away from my cupcakes? Usually only happens for my mini cupcakes …

  13. Darlene Joy Fabriga says:

    Do you have to pre heat all the time? Because my muffins got burnt after 10 mins in the oven for 170C I preheated the oven for 30 mins then put in my muffin 15 mins after . Then they got burnt and most of them sunk and a little wet inside., 😑😑😑

  14. dulcinea1 says:

    I have been under a rock my whole life. This is why my cupcakes look like 5 elephants had stamped on them.

  15. Nimisha Kahar says:

    Hi I like that this video you’re showing us the difference between the right and wrong ways of making cupcakes 🧁 it helps a lot! Question : what’s your thought on eggless cakes/cupcakes as many people are either vegetarian or would simply just want to bake eggless??

  16. S U says:

    I think still all the cupcakes will be eatable.

  20. May Hammed says:

    thanks for your notes about the perfect butter.

  21. Becky T says:

    I feel bad that i can’t tell when she’s saying “butter” and “batter”. FML 🤦🏼‍♀️

  22. Amar Ali says:

    Quick question. When you say 170, is this for a fan or gas oven
    I ask because I always have to bake my cakes 20 degrees lower than the given temperature. It's just my fan oven for you. But I noticed your ovens are fan assisted. So should I used 170 or 150 degrees?

  23. L A says:

    this is so important.

    Hahaha "so nothing that's going WEEEE"
