For all the big Harry Potter fans, there are many indulgent sweet themed treats out there. Today we recommend you homemade Harry Potter cupcakes.
A cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person, which may be baked in a small thin paper or aluminium cup. The first and foremost difference between cupcakes and cakes is the size. A cupcake, as the name speaks, is the size of a cup – small. The cake is a form of bread or bread-like food.
Some people confuse cupcakes with muffins. But they are two different things. Muffins may replace butter with a liquid form of fat, such as vegetable oil. The amount of butter and sugar is higher in cupcakes than in muffins. While the cupcakes are made by creaming the butter and sugar together to create a smooth, fluffy batter.
Also, cupcake batter is beaten significantly longer than muffin batter; this creates a uniformness of air bubbles throughout the cupcake. On the other side, muffin batter is beaten briefly and remains relatively lumpy.
Once baked in a cup-shaped mould, frosting and other cake decorations such as fruit and candy may be applied as toppings, in this instance Harry Potter cake decorations.
There are so many things you can create as Harry Potter cupcake toppers! You could do a Gryffindor scarf, the golden snitch, a lightning bolt, Harry Potter’s wand, etc.
If you’re new to the Harry Potter world, this may be your first time hearing about butterbeer. Butterbeer is a famous wizarding beverage that’s a favourite treat of Harry and his friends at Hogwarts. In the Harry Potter books, it’s served in Hogsmeade at the Three Broomsticks Inn and at the Hog’s Head Inn.
It tastes like a butterscotch cream soda with a creamy foam topping. YUM! It’s such a sweet and tasty beverage and the best part is that it’s inspired lots of other decadent recipes, including these Butterbeer Cupcakes.
These delicious cupcakes are the perfect treat for your next Harry Potter movie night or party!
