To Dome or not to Dome
When most of us think of cupcakes we think of those beautifully domed and frosted confections sold in bakeries everywhere. However, sometimes that gently sloping dome gets in the way of your decorating and you wish for a flat surface. So how can you control the rise of your cupcake? Adjust the heat on your oven. The hotter your oven the more likely your cupcake will dome. So to avoid the dome lower the dial to 325 and bake for a few minutes longer.
