Why Cupcakes with Pipettes?

The idea of pipettes goes all the way back to Louis Pasteur dispensing liquids in the lab, but today’s dessert pipettes allow you to add style to your desserts whatever the occasion. Common uses include cheesecakes, cupcakes, pudding, canapes, even chocolate-covered strawberries.  Today pipettes are adding interest to all types of foods.

These cute mini pipettes are perfect for adding liquids or alcohol to the center of the cupcake, without leaving them soggy.   

What is the point of pipettes in cupcakes?  You squeeze the air out of the small plastic pipe, and dip the tip of the cake pipette into a small bowl or cup of your favorite liquor(Rum, Vodka, Bourbon or Whiskey) or liqueur(Baileys Irish Cream, Kahlua, Rumchata).  Like magic, the liquor fills the pipette.  Press the pipette into the top of of each of your mini cakes, the whole batch – and you’re ready to enjoy!   When you are ready to eat this richer taste in a spiked cupcake, pinch that marvelous mixture right into the cake. What adult doesn’t like Cupcakes with boozy pipettes? (OK, if there is someone, just tell them to STFU!)



How do you choose a Dessert Pipette?

Choosing a dessert pipette can depend on factors, such as preference, the type of dessert, and the occasion. Consider the capacity of the pipette as it determines how much liquid it can hold. This is especially important if you are filling a larger dessert, like a cake or a trifle, with flavored syrups or liqueurs. 
Secondly, the size and shape of the pipette can also make a difference. A longer and thinner pipette can provide more control when inserting the liquid into smaller desserts, while a shorter and wider pipette may be easier to handle for larger desserts. 
Lastly, purchase the style and design of pipette that adds aesthetic value to the dessert presentation. For example, colored or patterned pipettes can complement the theme of the event.  Ultimately, the purpose of pipettes in  cupcakes is to deliver extra delicious flavor.

What is a Wacky Cake?

In times of scarcity and economic hardship, people have innovated to achieve simple pleasures.  The Wacky Cake, (aka Crazy cake, Funny Cake, or Depression cake) became popular during the Depression and into WWII.  Milk, butter and eggs were scarce, and many families did not have a whisk, or electric mixer.  Ingredients in the Wacky cake include flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, vegetable oil, white vinegar, salt and vanilla extract.  Additionally, all of the ingredients for this cake are mixed directly in the pan it is baked in.


What does the Wacky Cake taste Like?

This cake is moist, and full of rich chocolate flavor.  For almost 100 years, it has captured the hearts and taste buds of generations with its simplicity and accessibility. And since the Wacky Cake  is naturally vegan, it’s always a great option for dessert, especially for those with restricted diets.


Why would I chose the Wacky Cake?

Some would say the Wacky cake is simpler than a store-bought cake mix.  The Wacky cake features very basic ingredients that you probably have in your pantry. What’s more, it takes just over 30 minutes to make.  No need for extra dishes! The ingredients are mixed in the pan it is baked in.  Whether it is for a layer cake, cupcakes, or ‘Shutthefuckupcakes’- this recipe is delicious, budget-friendly and versatile.


Why make wells for the liquids while making a wacky cake?

The important things is to mix the dry ingredients well before adding the liquids.

    These ShuttheF***up Cakes are decadent! The cake is not sweet but rich and chocolatey! The topping is just the right mix of sweet and coconut and nuts. I used pecans and didn’t inject them but they were delicious just the same. My first scratch cupcake – easy recipe! Next time I will try the infused version!
