Adding in the eggs one at a time is the best way to slowly add them in. This gives you time to mix them in at medium speed while being aware of the other ingredients that you still need to add in.

This recipe isn’t hard but there are directions in the steps that you need to be certain that you’re following. This will ensure that you’re getting a light and fluffy cupcake every single time.

Why does my frosting not stick to the cupcakes?

This is because your cupcakes are too hot. You need to move them to a wire rack and let them cool completely before even attempting to frost them. Otherwise, the frosting will melt off and you’ll be stuck with a mess.
