People have recently told me that my cupcakes are small... I measured my liners and they are 4.5 in in diameter and I load up the frosting, but in a world where you always want more, icon_confused.gif I guess this is considered small.

I know that at a lot of gourmet cupcakerys the cupcakes are larger, any idea what size they are?

What size do you make?

Are those nut cups bigger than the regular ole' cupcake??

Standard size : 2" at the bottom, 2.75" across the top.

I use standard size baking cups. I use about 1/4 cup of batter in each cup. They bake nice but don't have a huge dome.

I also fill my cupcakes them ice them.

As for the nut cups...i'm not sure, I have seen small ones everywhere, but i'm sure you can get larger ones.

Hope that helps.
