And be sure to check out our New York vlog from last week! Link below recipe.

    I'm so glad someone has pointed out that a big mixer probably won't get all the mix properly. I see so many people neglect to do it and you can tell it isn't mixed, but they continue on. Guess that's the difference between beginners and a great channel like this.

  2. Sophia Warfle says:

    I’m working on making the cereal milk portion but after about 10 minutes on the stove top the milk starts to get super thick and it hardly yields any actual milk it’s just a lumpy mess. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, any trouble shooting suggestions?

  3. Em Hutchings says:

    Love sally so much. Absolute girl crush. xxx

  4. Ashanti Shurat says:

    Really inventive! As someone who lives in NYC Milk Bar is absolutely delicious and the cereal milk is to die for!!

  5. Benedict Baladad says:

    Dear cupcake jemma,

  8. Jude Bennett says:

    How do you get the milk to bubble away for 30mins without drying out?! It took me 3 goes to get usable cornflaky good (rather thick) milk… and that was after I only let it bubble for 5 minutes!
    Totally worth it – end result was 🤤🤤🤤

  9. Suzanne Chapman says:

    Love all your videos, thank you for inspiring to bake again, can I ask what size trays you use for your cupcakes, as they always look so generous, do you use cupcake or muffin trays please?

  10. missyamaha82 says:

    Hi Jemma! I hope you get better soon. I've done my back before and it's not nice at all 🙁
    Just a quick q around some of your icing videos. Are you able to also mention how many cupcakes your current recipe or batch will cover?
    I love love love your vids and have followed for so long but sometime struggle to work out how many cupcakes your recipe will cover or a certain tier or size of cake xx

  11. American Baker in Germany says:

    So interesting. Never heard of these. Thank you for sharing.

  12. Adrian Hickenbottom says:

    What are your tricks to get butter soft and room temperature even when it's cols ?

  13. NotJC says:

    who else agrees that jemma should collab with yolanda (how to cake it)

  14. moon light says:

    i think there is a mistake in the measurements i tried making it today and it was such a mess

  15. Anon says:

    Can you replicate school dinner puddings from the 1970's?…Anyone else want this?

  17. Katraca Leigh says:

    It's interesting that even the filming style is different for Sally than it is when Jemma does her recipes. I really like both, it fits each of them

  18. montclips says:

    what happened to Jemma is she sick

  19. Katie Scott says:

    Hey! I LOVE your tutorials and have made them for YEARS!! But nearly every time I forget to swipe through to the oven temp to get it heating up. Any chance you could bob it with the ingredients in future? Can’t wait to try these! Had the milk bar ice cream for the first time ever this year and I’ve not stopped dreaming about it since.. that saltiness!!!

  20. Dean Dodge says:

    I hope you have a speedy recovery Gemma!

    PS. SALLLLLY ❤️❤️

  21. Katie Bigglestone says:

    They look amazing. I really wish I knew about Milk bar when I went to New York 5 years ago. If I go there again I’ll definitely go there

  22. Katie Bigglestone says:

    Will you be selling these cupcakes in the shop as well. I really want to try one

  23. Katie Bigglestone says:

    Is there a recipe for these cupcakes?

  24. kate r says:

    Are these sold in the shop

  25. Mona Shojaei says:

    What would you say the total time for this recipe is? Prep and actual baking etc?

  26. Katie Bigglestone says:

    Do you think you can use any other cereal with this recipe?

  27. Katie Bigglestone says:

    I find this video really relaxing to watch. I definitely want to make these cupcakes

  28. Yael Even says:

    Ok, so I have watched this video over and over again just because I love the way you explain and finally felt I was finally ready to make it. Yay!! It worked out so well and they came out great! Thanks and keep on doing what you do!!

  29. Rania Mekawy says:

    Hi Sally,
    May I know why there is no vanilla extract in the recipe despite it containing eggs ?!

  30. dallama182 says:

    It cost me £15 for a 737g tub of those sprinkles.
    I dread to think how much one that size costs!

  31. Tegan Alwagar 92 says:

    Hello, how are you ??? I am a girl from Jordan who is very impressed with your channel I hope that you will add the Arabic language translation

  32. H M ARIF says:

    Hi! I'm currently making this and I'm at the milk infusion stage, it's only been 10 minutes but most of the milk has disappeared! Is that right? Is there a way to fix it? Thank you 😀

  33. nwaukpele13 says:

    Simmer for 30 minutes or 13?🙈

  34. B l u e B e r r y's says:

  37. Beth Lifestyle says:

    Wow! Delicious and amazing style of decorations.. I love it😘😍

  38. Aegyogirl69 says:

    I tried this today. My only complaint is re the cornflake milk. after only 10 mins, the milk had all but dried up so I had to add more. I stopped infusing it after 15 mins and when I strained the cornflakes what I was left with was not milk but what looked like cornflake mush. Nothing like what was in your video. I then went to see if I could find the Milk Bar recipe for cereal milk. I found it on their website and they don’t boil the cornflakes in the milk. They just let it steep in the milk for 20 mins after baking them. And they make it clear that you do not want to push the cornflakes through the sieve (which is what I did because I was trying to extract as much liquid from the mushy cornflakes as possible). I will have to try this again using the Milk Bar method.

  39. Talatha says:

    Made these but they were a bit too sweet for my liking, maybe I didn’t add enough salt? In the end I used only a fraction of the buttercream. Also, I didn’t taste the cornflakes(milk). It tasted fine but not that special unfortunately

  40. Mitchell Robless says:

    or baking soda

  41. Mitchell Robless says:

    what time did you put the oven for sonces 220c

  42. Bella Muse Plays says:
