What tool is best for getting the right amount of frosting into a standard cupcake pan?
I've see a couple by Wilton- one is a set with 3 plastic scoops (but I don't need mini or jumbo scoops). Another is a Wilton plastic spoon/scoop + spatula. But I'm leaning most towards a metal squeeze scoop I saw at Country Kitchen Sweetart- Nor Pro 679. It's quite a bit pricier than the other options but it seems like workflow would be faster.
I assume you mean "batter" into a cupcake pan?
Easiest for me is a "disher". Google it to see what it is., but the metal spoon with a wire inside it to pop it out, like the standard cookie scoops. You can get the size that best suits your liners and recipe preferences.
yup charm...that's the disher!
I use a disher too if the batter is runny like my chocolate. If the batter is thicker I get better result putting it in a pastry bag with a round top and piping equal fills into the cups. webstaurant.com has dishers for a good price and they are all numbered and tell you the oz. sizing. Always do a few test batches to see which works out the best before doing a whole tray.
i use a disher too. that wilton 3 plastic scoop thing can get annoying. i feel like when i use them i get batter everywhere!
i use a mini disher for mini cupcakes and a regular disher for anything other than that. jumbo cupcakes just get more scoops!
I use a #20 disher
