What's the next size up from a standard cupcake/muffin baking paper? Like the ones most cupcake shops use. I think it's the size that should be in between standard & jumbo. Does anyone know the size (measurements)
I always thought the cupcake shops used the regular size but I dont know. Maybe someone will chime in and can say for sure.
I plan on researching this also.
There are two cupcakery shops in my area. One has cupcakes the same size I make at home. The other one has a slightly larger cupcake. They are not jumbo, but not standard size. The cupcake liner was 4.75" across and mine are 4.375" across.
When I find out, I'll post here.
Muffins and cupcakes are baked in a muffin pan or tin made of steel, aluminum or cast iron. Make sure the pan you buy has rounded corners and seamless cups. Non-stick surfaces are available which enables easy removal of the muffins from the pan. Each pan can have 6-, 12- or 24- cup-shaped depressions and range from mini- to jumbo in size. Mini muffin pans usually have 12 or 24 cup-shaped depressions. Each little cup is about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter and 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) deep and holds about 2 tablespoons of batter. The regular size muffin pans have 6- or 12- cup-shaped depressions with each cup about 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter and holds about 1/2 cup or 4 ounces of batter. Jumbo muffin pans have 6 cup-shaped depressions with each cup being 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter and 2 inches (5 cm) deep holding about 1 cup of batter each.
There are also fluted muffin pans (also called bundt-lette pans) that come in 6- and 12- cup sizes made from heavy cast aluminum. Each of the 6 fluted muffin cups measures 4 inches (10 cm) wide and 2 inches (5 cm) deep and holds 8 ounces (240 ml) of batter. Each of the 12 fluted muffin cups measures 2 1/2 inches wide (6.25 cm) and 1 inch (2.54 cm) deep. They can be used to bake both muffins and cakes when decorative individual cakes are desired.
Im still confused. What size do most cupcake shops use then?
