A cupcake designer reveals the secret to her signature look for customers on Instagram

The custom cupcakes you see at some coffee shops, cafes, and restaurants can be anything from simple, seasonal, and cute to whimsical and edgy.

One cupcake that may come as a surprise to many is a fluffy, fluffy cupcake with a little bit of cake thrown in. 

But how does one create their own custom cupcake and what makes it so unique? 

First off, you’ll need a cupcake mold. 

You’ll need about 12 cups to make your cupcakes, which are usually a few ounces in diameter and can be shaped with an icing scoop, round cutter, or a knife.

You’ll need to decorate the cupcakes yourself, too.

You can use any type of cake or cupcake decorating kit. 

How to make cupcakes at home The first step in making cupcakes is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Fill a large baking dish with cold water and add the chocolate chips. 

When the chocolate has melted, add the flour and whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy. 

Add the milk, then the butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. 

Turn the mixture on the stove top until the batter starts to thicken. 

Then, stir in the chocolate, egg yolks, and the flour mixture. 

Mix it all together until the cupcake is thick enough to spread around and is shiny. 

Bake for about 25 minutes. 

Cool cupcakes in the cupboard for about 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Using a pastry brush, brush some of the cup-shaped cake into the cup, using a spoon to lightly press the frosting into the cake. 

Let the cup cake cool completely before you serve it.
