Should I use the 2oz muffin pans? or the 3oz? for the regular cupcakes?

I hope someone can answer my question.. I'm just a newbie icon_sad.gif

It's totally a matter of preference. But to make your life easy, pick one that fits standard liners.

The easiest way to do this is to go to the grocery store and buy Reynold's foil liners. These are standard and sturdy. Now you can take one with you when you go pan shopping. The bottom needs to fit snugly and the sides should lay with no buckles.

For the minis, there are more choices. I offer minis and micros. You still need to find the pan and liners that are compatible.

would you prefer the 2oz or the 3oz cupcakes? is the 3oz is a bit bigger?
or the 2oz cupcake will be okay? because I'm planning to start a home based business. icon_smile.gif

As Susan (scp1127) said, it's a matter of preference. The 3 oz size is fifty percent bigger than the 2 oz. Think about packaging, how you will sell them, and what your potential customers will prefer. I suggest you bake some of each size, price both sizes, and see which fits best into your overall business plan. Every market is different. You make think we have all the answers here, but we often have to guess and hope icon_smile.gif

And no decision is irreversible. Take your best guess...
