Has anyone ever rotated their cupcakes when baking to help the bottom rack ones from burning on the bottoms? Wouldn't want them to fall or anything, but did know if someone else tried this before I go and possibly screw up. icon_smile.gif

I was really hoping someone would have an answer on this one...have to bake 12 dozen tonight. With the lack of success I had on things last night, not sure I want to try my luck. If no replys by close of business, I will just resume what I've always done.

If no one replies in time, you can try filling each pan only half full of cupcakes to experiment with. If it's not successful, you'll lose the time, but you won't lose as much batter as if you'd filled the pans all the way.

Personally, I won't even open the oven during the first 15 minutes of baking, let alone jostle the pans around. Hopefully, you'll hear from someone who has had a positive experience.

I have not done it with cupcakes, but I always rotate if I have one cake on the top rack and one on the bottom. My oven is a POS though, so if I don't do that the bottom rack cake won't brown up.
