ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Who doesn't like cupcakes? Thursday, an expert offered tips on how to make a perfect cupcake.

An Instructor with the Dougherty County UGA extension office taught a cupcake frenzy class downtown at the candy shop building.

To get just the right texture, moistness, and taste - they learned to pay attention to details such as the proper temperature for ingredients and exactly how to mix them.

"I'm going to teach the two techniques of making the cake including the dump method and the cream method," said UGA Extension Agent, Suzanne Williams. "A lot of people don't realize it does have an effect on how your product turns out."

The cooking lab costs $10. She holds one about every three months. You can sign up by e-mailing Suzanne Williams at suzanwms@uga.edu.
