Use an ice cream scoop (the kind with the little button the swoops the ice cream out of the spoon) to put cupcake batter into the cupcake cups. It comes out perfectly proportioned and you don’t need to lift the bowl or mess with spatulas.
Also, did you know what will happen if you put a cold stick of butter into a bowl with a hot stick of butter that you already melted into the microwave for 30 seconds?
It will explode!
I didn’t know that until about ten minutes ago.
Happy homemaking, ladies.
