Easter Cupcake Update

Some users of our Easter cupcake recipe package have been complaining that the cupcakes fell, flattened and were slightly burnt around the edges. As a result, we decided to re-test and see what was happening. Here's what we found:

We realized that it's crucial to process the batter for the extra 2 minutes indicated in the recipe. While the batter will be smooth before this step, processing it for those remaining 2 minutes makes it looser, smoother and pourable.

When testing the cupcakes both with the 2 minute step and without, the results were dramatically different. The unprocessed batter fell and became flat and messy. The processed ones were had a lovely dome shape and were light and fluffy in the center.
