I made these cupcakes last night and plan to frost/decorate them today. I promised to deliver them to my DIL on Sat morning for her party that night. They are sitting in a large tupperware container right now. Please bear with me as I have a few questions and answers to any or all are very welcome.
1. Should I take the papers off the cupcakes now? Before frosting? Leave them on for the party? Spraying the papers before putting in the batter seemed like a good thought, has anyone done that?
2. The plan is to frost them with the creamy dreamy white chocolate icing. But first, make a thick raspberry syrup. Do you vote for piping it into the cupcake? Or just syruping the top?
BTW, I saw a Jacque Pepin episode where he is straining a raspberry sauce. He recommends getting starting by taping the outside of the strainer with a knife to prevent the seeds being “mushed” into the sieve. What a great tip.
Thanks for your thoughts.
