TikTok star Shannon Doherty, aka @athomewithshannon, who has over 1.3 million followers, regularly shares her hacks for around the home and in the kitchen.
And the avid baker has now lifted the lid on how a household product we all have in our kitchen cupboards will transform your cupcake recipe for good.
In a video titled ‘My secret to the perfect cupcakes,’ Shannon, who is based in the US, reveals she lines her cupcake tin with rice so that it absorbs the moisture and leaves her with a base Mary Berry herself would be proud of.
A bag of rice costs around £1.80 and contains up to 67 tablespoons of rice, meaning each serving used comes in at less than 1p.

In the video, busy mum Shannon tells her followers: “My secret to the perfect cupcakes – this trick is so good that the Food Network actually just replayed my video.”
Shannon then advises people to make their mixture as usual, following a recipe of their choice.
Then she can be seen sprinkling several grains of rice in each section of a cake tray, before placing a paper case directly over the rice, and pouring in the cake mixture.
She then puts the cakes into the oven and sets a timer so that she can flip them half way through.
