Having watched Cupcake Wars and saw they ofen used icecream scoops or small measuring cups. I just wondered what people use to fill the liners to get them even.
i use an ice cream scoop all the time, i evcen have the small one for mini cupcakes
Yep, just use a disher (AKA ice cream scoop). They come in a dozen or more different sizes. Quick, easy, precise.
i've used an ice cream scoop before, but i love my mini ladles, i have on that makes perfect cup cakes, and another that makes perfect mini cup cakes. you can get them at any kitchen store.
Scoops of different sizes... some recipes rise more than others. I write the size of the scoop and whether it is a scant or heaping scoop. Bed Bath and Beyond has a dispenser that works well with thinner batters. You can also use a 24" pastry bag filled with batter.
ice cream scoop
(Proper name if you're ITB)
portion scoop and a weight scale. Every cupcake is exactly the same weight.
Yep, I'm anal.
I use the Pampered Chef large scoop its 3 Tbs(45Ml) for the standard size CC & the small scoop 1Tbs(15Ml) for the minis & I always level them & they turn out perfect.
