I have been asked to make the Martha Stewart "witch" cupcakes that have the choc sugar cone on top for the hat. I was given a picture to go by. Here is my question: In the pic, the cupcakes look like they rose noicely and actually have a "dome" to sit the sugar cone on. How do you get cupcakes to bake up with a dome? Mine always bake up a little flat or just barely rounded on top.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

If you overfill them a bit they will make a dome!!!

Ok, I will try that... although when I have overfilled them in the past, they flatten out like a mushroom. When you say overfill do you mean to the top of the liner?

Thanks!

Hmm, I'm curious... does higher heat cause them to rise and dome?

Bake at 350 instead of 325. Fill your cups 2/3 full instead of half.

Mine do this too and I hate it! I 'd love to know a great fix for it, and I even fill them about 2/3 also.
