I love cupcakes, but filling those paper liners is tricky! Batter seems to get everywhere and it makes a horrible mess! (I sound like one of those awful infomercials, don’t I?!)
Here is how I fill those cupcake tins. Fill a gallon-size ziploc with the cake batter.
The easiest way is to just fold down the top of the ziploc and then pour the batter in. By folding down the top it keeps the mess inside the bag and not all over the zipper part.
Zip the bag closed and snip a very small hole off one bottom corner. Now just squeeze the batter into the tins.
If you’re like me and only have one tin, when you are done filling the 12 muffins take the ziploc and put a little clip around the hole to keep the batter from oozing out while you’re waiting for the first batch to cook.
This trick also works great with the Cupcakes in Cones.
I enlisted my 5-year old to take the pictures for me. She’s adorable.
Diet Dr Pepper should pay me for all my subliminal advertising I just did for them. If you don’t believe me scroll back up and look a little closer at all the pictures. 🙂
