I have been working with a local grocery chain to sell my cupcakes in packs of 6 and individually. but, they say the standard size is too small. thumbsdown.gif

The pans I have fill up to the tippy top with 1/2 cup water. i have the Wilton Jumbo pan, but yowsers that is HUGE!! icon_eek.gif The jumbo holds 1 cup water.

So i want a pan that holds about 3/4 of water to the tippy top.

So could y'all be little cuppy angels and measure your pans for me? I measured 1/2 water and poured wil it looks like is about to spill over. If it turns out your pan is more than 1/2 could you please tell me the brand and the place you got it? I have a license so I can buy from any retailer or wholesaler....

THANKS SO VERY< VERY MUCH. I am pulling my hair out! icon_cry.gif

Yup, mine are 1/2 cup too. However, I buy the "jumbo" muffin cups (not the giant that fill the 1 cup tins, they are the regular kind that you buy at the grocery store, but they say "jumbo"). I'm looking forward to seeing if there is a different size myself. Keep us posted!

Ok. I think they are ALL 1/2 cup. Check out Wikipedia.

Thanls for checking guys.

Mommyle, unfortunately there are a bunch of sizes...I just can not find the perfect size I need.

I think foxrun sells one that holds 3/4 cup, but I did not want to shell out the $50 if I did not have to...know what I mean...??

My husband and I decided those jumbo from wilton are entirely too big. If you are gerring a cupcake for a small dessert, then that jsut defeats the purpose!

But I see the stores point...those "standard" size cuppies are jsut small. However, today i checked the local bakeries and there's are the standard 1/2 size too...

Grr....I am ready for something easy.....

Thanks for measuring...keep'em coming please if you can....

How about these? They look bigger, but not as tall as the Wilton ones maybe?

Here is a website that I think might have what you are looking for, they sell commercial pans but if you are a registered business you should be able to get them. The catalogue is down the bottom of the page and it has a ton of muffin pans on page 8. PM me if you cannot get the link, I will save the pdf document to my desktop and can send it to you if you need me to.
Hope this helps!

Me again! icon_biggrin.gif

This is a link to a pop-over pan that has a capacity of 3/4 cups....might work!


Prices are in Canadian dollars but they ship worldwide and the US dollar is about par with ours now!

Parrish's in Calif. has a cuppy pan, that is 3/4. Only bad thing about it is makes about 18 -24 at once. For those who work from home or have a small oven, this might not work.

Ok, I went to a local rest supply store and got a jumbo pan. It holds just under a cup. It measures 3.5 across and 1.5 deep. the cupcakes are larger than stnadarnd, but smaller than those ginormous wilton jumbo pans.

I would still make my kids split one of these cup cakes, but we will see what the grocery store says, meeting first week of July.

Thanks so much for all of your help. Julia

I know it's too late, but mine holds 3/4 cup. It is a Baker's Secret pan. My sister bought it for me, so I'm not sure where it's from. HTH...

I use a pan with standard sized cups, but my cupcakes are bigger. I found papers that are taller, the base is the same size though. I prefer this because they don't end up looking like a HUGE cupcake, but they are bigger than your typical "home" cupcake. The liners are by Hoffmaster, I bought them online and can't find the site that I purchased them from. I measured a standard liner and used those dimensions to figure out what I wanted.
