hello, i am looking to make some fancy cupcakes for my daughter's birthday. Do you have a recipe? I would like to make different flavours of butter cream and different coloured icing too. Thank you, brighteyes30.
I'm going to be making cupcakes for a wedding and some of them are going to be lemon flavoured. I usually use butter icing, but for this I am going to make royal icing and wondered how much lemon juice I could substitute in place of water to make the icing? I want it quite lemony, but still sweet. Thanks, jojoscot.

I want to make a cake and the recipe has a double cream filling. I'm in France and it's impossible to buy double cream, or whipping cream, as we would normally find in the UK. What would you use, especially when making sweet recipes, as a substitute?

When I melt butter for a recipe I find it starts to separate. Have I warmed it too much? If so, what's the secret to getting it just right?
