I use a normal cupcake pan for my cupcakes but they wind up so tiny...almost miniature in size.  How do I get a beautiful, decent size cupcake and what size pan should I use?



Thanks for the help, guys!

Use the same pan, but fill the cups 3/4 of the way full. If you did, then test your oven temp. Most cupcakes recipes do well at 350 degrees, or higher, up to 400 (for the first 5-8 minutes, then lower it to 350)  to help them raise nice and tall. Or, they could be under baked, and shrunken, or your recipe could be off, or you leavening could be past it's prime, you waited too long to bake them, you didn't mix properly, or you opened the door too often, or you slammed the door half way through... It is really hard to tell, unless you post your recipe, and a picture.
