Even though I've been baking since young with my mum, we didn't do much fancy stuff. Most of the focus was also getting in more of the good stuff into what we bake (think loads of chocolate chips, or double the amount of walnuts!), rather than appearance. Apparently, it's not trivial to bake and frost a cupcake just like those you see in the store.
I turned to my favourite teacher -- the internet, and finally found this "Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes" post. Doesn't this make you drool?

This post doesn't just tell you how to bake perfect cupcakes, it also showed the failed attempts/experiments. I was like, "Hey, some of my cupcakes look like that!". So if you want the PERFECT cupcake, give this a try =)
