What do you use to measure how much batter you put in each cupcake liner? My cupcakes always come out uneven. I know most of the time it will say 1/2 or 3/4 of the cup full but it seems like I'm still doing it wrong.

Any tips?

An ice cream scoop.  

I have a nice metal one, where you push the button to make the ice cream pop out, so that won't work.  LOL..

I bought a cheap plastic one at the dollar store that is just the scoop and I love using it for cupcakes, muffins, etc.

Ice cream scoop. I have one that swoops along to get the stuff out, so it just plops the batter in and I get even cupcakes (or muffins)! And I use a cookie scoop for the minis.

I just pour in what I think looks right but the ice cream scoop idea is great and would be a lot less messy!

I usually use a small measuring cup and just eyeball it.

This is what I do as well.

Quoting psych_mom:

I use large paper liners and I use a 3/4 cup to fill them, always works for me!

I just eye ball it. Some come out different but it doesn't bother me.

I always go about 3/4 full, seems like just enought for a nice top to frosting without overflow
