Tips: 

Save time and use a cookie scoop! The larger size is perfect for scooping the cupcake batter into the tins.

I have a set of stainless steel cookie scoops that I love and they make baking so much easier. You can order a set here.

They really are a time saver.  If you love baking, I recommend that you keep these in your kitchen.

I don’t even consider myself a baker and I use them all the time. I use the largest size to scoop the cupcake batter and it makes it so easy.

The smaller scoop I use for cookies and to make meatballs. You will definitely get your money worth out of these little scoops.

It is really important to not overfill the cupcake liners. You don’t want them to overflow!

I like to use a disposable decorator bag. It makes the cleanup a breeze and the cupcakes turn out so pretty.

Make sure you have a good  muffin tin to bake the cupcakes in. If you buy a good set, they will last forever.

We also like these silicone muffin pans.  They are just so easy to use because of the silicone.

Also, you certainly can use a hand mixer but we love our stand mixer. It gets a ton of use and to this day is such a good investment.

We bake a lot so it is so handy and we love our mixer.

Stock up when cake mixes go on sale!

I like to buy several cake mixes when I spot a good sale at the grocery store. We tend to have lots of last minute baking needs and having this in the pantry means it not a problem!

It seems we always need to bring some sort of baked good to this event or that function. Since you don’t need many ingredients, they are so easy to mix up on the spur of the moment.

We can easily make these to take to a get together or event on a moments notice. The kids have even had a bunch of friends over and we made these quickly.

I love saving money and giving my family treats to enjoy. It is a win all around.

  1. OK, so I must be doing something wrong. I have silicone pans, cupcake, and bundt, but I do not like them! I have trouble with things sticking in a major way. What is the secret to using these?
