I opted for enviro-friendly green.  I really doubted it would reach me here in Africa (so many hungry mouths) but it did!

Julie I really needed this!  I am a minimalist and learnt long ago one does not require a vast array of equipment.
But this was an exception.

Incidentally I found Thermaworks highly efficient and geared for offshore business. What a pleasure dealing with them.

Bill red is very popular.

My Kitchen aid mixer is red, and my food processor is red…so there you have it…Red it is!

Red it is then.

But my green is really luxuriant—so so tropical and lush!!

Usually I use a tooth pick for cupcakes…it is really easy to overbake cupcakes so I keep a close eye on them.  I always use paper liners…and you really do want to get them out before they start to shrink.  I check with a toothpick…and pray that I don’t see that slight shadow of shrinkage inbetween the paper liner and the side of the pan.

As long as we are on the cupcake topic…I have come up with my own yellow cupcake recipe that I am happy with.  I love the taste of Rose’s yellow cupcakes…but they are lighter and fluffier than I prefer when I’m going to use a large amount of dense frosting.  (Rose prefers the cake to be the star…and a light fluffy cup cake with a small amount of frosting woudl be her #1 choice).  I however, feel the cupcake is there to hold up the delicious sweet frosting…and therefore, I like something a little denser.  It’s been a long process of trial and error, but I’ve finally got something that I’m happy with.

As I recall, Bill is responsible for Bill’s Famous Buttercream also?
My Thermapen is red too, and matches all else. Haven’t had a chance to bake for several weeks, but can’t wait to use it.

Mine is green, too, and I use it almost every day.  It broke, however, about 14 months after purchasing it.  Readings just went crazy.  Don’t recall what the warranty was on it, but they sent me a new one, after evaluating my old one.  Turnaround time was only about a week, but I felt crippled with it out of my hands.  I wouldn’t mind having a spare, but it’s a bit too expensive just to have one lying around not used.  Rather, I have a cheepo that I bought from Target, which is very accurate, but really slow.

The cheap one’s are too slow. They seem a very good company - I had excellent service. Plenty of competition out there!

I have been laboring about this all day, even with the thermapen. some are saying between 190-200 but my chocolate butter cupcake centers were still just a tad goopy a long after the time or the degree internally. Finally they looked good and crumb decent but there is a lingering gummy sensation in the center. Did you ever experience this? I baked them in silicone, using foil and paper liners sprayed with bakers joy. I guess i will freeze til Monday night to frost [it’s Sat]. Or I could refrigerate. What do you think, Bill? This is my second cupcake experience - cant you tell? I presume I should leave the paper and foil on? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! joan
