How many mini cupcakes equal a regular cupcake?
Most cupcake recipes can be made into mini cupcakes. Mini cupcake pans hold roughly 1/3 of the amount of regular cupcake pans, so if you have a recipe that yields 12 full sized cupcakes, you'll get 36 minis from the same amount of batter.
Can you fill mini cupcakes?
Fill a pastry bag fitted with a bismarck tip (tip #230) with cupcake filling. *A bismarck tip is a specially designed tip for filling pastries. Poke the bismarck tip into the top of each mini cupcake and squeeze to fill. The mini cupcake will begin to expand, and you will know it has been filled.
How do you transport mini cupcakes?

How do you package mini cupcakes?
Place cupcakes in plastic cups wrapped in cellophane to give out individually. Place one cupcake in a clear, disposable plastic cup. Cut a 6 in (15 cm) of sturdy cellophane wrap and lay it on a flat surface, then place the plastic cup holding the cupcake in the center of the cellophane.
How long do you bake mini cupcakes and at what temperature?
Bake the mini cupcakes at 350 °F (177 °C) for roughly 15 minutes. Check on the mini cupcakes after 9 or 10 minutes, sticking a toothpick into the center of one. If the toothpick comes out clean, they're done! If batter shows up on the toothpick, leave them in for about 5 more minutes.
What temperature do you bake cupcakes at?
Cupcake Baking Temperature: Bake cupcakes at 350 degrees F. Be sure to read the recipe for exact instructions as the batter density may vary. If you are baking in a pan with a dark or non-stick surface, you should lower the recommended recipe temperature by 25°F to avoid over-browning.
How do you make mini cupcakes without liners?
It's easy to make cupcakes that slide right out of the pan even without liners. All that's needed is butter or nonstick cooking spray and flour. First, start with a clean cupcake tray and spray each cup with a coating of nonstick spray. If you don't have spray, butter will work too.
How long do you leave cupcakes in the oven?
Most cupcake recipes usually bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, so if you're not sure if your math is right, err on the side of caution and start with a shorter baking time, like 15 minutes. Your cupcakes are done baking when a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean with no crumbs on it.
