Are you using a measuring cup to make sure you're getting the same amount of batter in each cup?

I use an ice cream scooper and they always come out even and same height. However, when doing chocolate cake, put a little less than what you would normally use for vanilla. Chocolate rises a little higher than vanilla.

Hope this helps...

I made some the other day that had a small dome and i wanted a flat top. a couple of minutes after i took them out of the oven i put a paper towel on top of them and pressed the dome down. it worked.

I also use the ice cream scoop method. Works great.

You're welcome! cups should be filled 2/3, by the way....
