    Hi there had a cake mix cupcake with a swirl of cream on at a playdate today. Dr Oetker if that helps. No idea of NV for points. Any ideas?

    Was it cream (like out a can) or buttercream?

    I regularly make cupcakes with buttercream and they generally have something in the region of 12-14pp per cupcake. Depends how much buttercream was on the top though because thats the real point killer lol.

    No it was a plain sponge cupcake with a little whipped cream (heaped tsp) piped on top and a mandarin segment.

    Found some NV on Dr Oetker site. Seems that most cupcakes come out at 5 pp each (plus topping) if you follow directions and make 12.

    Is that 'as prepared' though? With things like mixtures etc it's very difficult to point unless the NI is as prepared because they get higher when you make them. Things like powdered soup etc often list the NI of the item in it's original form, then it changes when water/milk etc is added.

    Yes it seems so but obviously topping is extra.
