I've read a few things about how to get a nice dome on cupcakes...if I want to get flat tops to the cupcakes is there a trick to it? Mine always end up domed and I don't want these cuppies to be too tall. Thanks![/img]

Try three tablespoons of batter. That should give you a perfectly flat cupcake. Make sure the tablespoons are not "heaping". Level the batter out a little.

Try baking at 325 degrees - I think that might help as well.

I agree. I have a 3 tablespoon ice cream scoop that I use sometimes. It's a little less full so they usually come out pretty flat. I like a taller, more full cupcake so I use my 1/4 cup measure (4 tablespoons).

I'm with msulli10. For flat cupcakes, I bake 15 degrees lower and a few minutes longer. That usually keeps them very flat. Happy caking!

Try preheating your oven 325 degrees & bake on middle rack

Thanks, guys! The cupcake toppers I made are tall enough that I'm worried my usual cupcakes won't fit on the tiers of the cupcake stand I got when it's all assembled. I appreciate the help!

Well, I heard somewhere to make sure all of your stuff is at room temp before you mix it together...it worked for me icon_smile.gif
