They are baking now, I am not sure what a 2/3 or a 3/4 looks like - it's easy when you can look at something via the side, but just staring into a filled cupcake liner.
ugh... crossing fingers they dont look like a hot mess, they have to look good.
I should have filled a few at different heights and picked the one I liked best, but I got all excited and just started filling and baking.
Yep sweet, good luck. I always put one in the oven and look at it at about 10 minutes. Then I scoop the rest. I then note it on the recipe, both the height and the disher size.
Oh well, we have this knowledge partly because of our mistakes.
one time, i over-filled my chocolate cupcakes and they came out flat and blobby! I called them frankenstein cakes, they still tasted good
I use an ice cream scoop to measure my batter so i always have perfect looking cupcakes. It has to be the scoop that has the lever on it. They are only about $5 bucks and TOTALLY worth it!
But some recipes do need 2/3, 3/4, or even 7/8. That's why I have uite a few scoops. I note the scoop number and the liner size for each liner.
