Use an old ketchup bottle to fill your cupcake pan with no mess. ** I made more of a mess TRYING to get the cupcake mix in the bottle than I would have just putting it in the muffin tin. And THEN I had to clean out the squeeze bottle. NOT worth it!
Using cups to serve cupcakes at bake sales, etc and Ive never been able to get it to work because once you ge the cupcake in you cant get it out without a handful or icing and making it look gross. Check this out! Such a better idea!
