Someone on here gave me this tip (and it might be in the link that Zamku just gave you) but anyway, start your oven at 400F and then change it to 350 when you put the cupcakes in the oven. They dome perfectly every time. =o)

I love that trick that someone had posted, I have used it 3x already and each time my cupcakes came out perfect on top. Thank you and highly recommended!

You can't really tell from the angle on this photo, but these were my first attempt at using the hint and like I said earlier, I was very happy.

I'm so tickled that advice about turning your oven to 400 and then down to 350 to get the cupcakes to dome. It really works they came out perfect!! Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

I'm fairly certain that is a Melvira tip. She's the cupcake queen! icon_biggrin.gif

I want to make tennis ball cupcakes for my son's tennis class next week. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to get them domed on top. I'm soooo glad I saw this thread! icon_biggrin.gif

Works everytime for me! And yes I do believe that was originally a "Melvira" tip! Lots of ideas on the new Cupcake forum!

Man!!! Where were you gals yesterday? I baked 5 dozen cupcakes last night and I really could have used this tip. Oh well. There's always next time. Thanks for sharing! icon_smile.gif

i have heard about, and used this tip about turning hte oven up and then down when putting the cuppies in the oven, but what to do when you are baking multiple batches? keep turning the oven up and down?

I have done it that way, turning it up and down. Probably not the best for your oven, but it works. icon_smile.gif
