When making fruit-based cakes/mousse:
*Use high quality ingredients.
*get fruits that are very ripe and juicy (unless stated in recipe) or the delicate flavours in the fruits will be lost.
When making cupcakes:
*to check if cupcakes are ready, insert a toothpick in the middle, if it comes out clean, then its done.
*always allow cupcakes to cool completely before decorating them.
