I don't know what size mine is but it's small and takes 1 1/2 scoops to get the cupcake liner full to where I'd like it but the problem is that second/ 1/2 scoop often isn't exact so the don't all come out the same. . .thanks in advance!

I use the large Pampered Chef scoop, which is approx 3 Tbsp. I have seen Oneida scoops at WalMart in several sizes.

I use the "yellow portion control" one, you should be able to find it online or at a restaurant supply.

I use this one (link below)...it makes a perfect sized cupcake. I had been using 2 different sized scoopers (1 full scoop of each one was the right amount) until it finally dawned on me to figure out how much the combined capacity was so that I could use only 1 scoop. It's a size 30, equivalent to 1 1/4 oz. This one works great. I like how the squeeze is in the handle instead of a thumb lever.

Funny mine is the yellow one from the restaurant supply as well. Just went and measured and it's the three tablespoons. Having the perfect scooper is critical. I use the small cookie scoop for mini cupcakesicon_smile.gif

I use the Oneida stainless scoop from walmart for the big ones and the small one for the mini cups. Works perfectly for me.

I use a standard icecream scoop which is 1/4 cp. This gives me the perfect amount of batter for standard cupcakes and muffins as well as perfectly sized chocolate chip cookies.

I have 2" Scoop that fills the cupcake liner with just the right amount so that when baked it comes right to the top of the liner. I Love it!

I also use the yellow disher for cupcakes and cookies.
