Can anyone help? I have started making cupcakes for family / friends and I'm struggling to get them all to rise to the same level / look uniform. I think I fill the cake cases to the same level for each cake, and then they rise to different levels. Also, I use the same recipe each time with the same cake cases etc - sometimes the mixture seems to make 12 cakes that all rise to the top of the cake case, sometimes they only seem to rise to say 3/4 of the case.
I don't have a fan oven, just a normal gas oven, but to be honest, I don't think the oven makes a difference.
Any tips of how to ensure I get perfectly risen cupcakes to the top of the cake case each time???
I'm also gunna use that ice cream scoop idea, thanks. Cooking large trays of cupcakes to see if they cook the same accross the oven is one of the ways that testers review how good ovens are. Apparently some have cold spots and hot spots rather than a uniform temperature, so in some ovens uneven cupcakes are unavoidable.
