How to say Dr Oetker

Unless, you are a native German, it is very likely that even if you are familiar with one of the products that you may be unsure as to how you actually pronounce Dr Oetker. Oetker is a common surname in Germany, but in the UK and Ireland it is fair to say there are not many Oetkers listed in the local phone directory. It really is quite easy to say - it is pronounced Dr Urtker. Simply substituting the UR for the OE makes it easy to say.

How to make Gluten Free Cupcakes

  • Place in preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes until risen and lightly golden.
  • Allow to cool completely.

To Decorate:

  • Take buttercream and use liquid food colours to create the shades you want.
  • Take a piping bag with a rose nozzle and open the bag up over your hand, with a small spoon put some of the coloured buttercream in the bag on one side, spoon the uncoloured vanilla buttercream into the other side of the bag so both colours can feed into the nozzle at the same time.
  • Twist the icing bag shut and pipe a rosette onto the top of the cake.
