How to Transfer Cupcake Batter from the Bowl

Ever wondered what is the best way to transfer cupcake batter from the bowl to the cake liner (or patty pan)?

If you're still using a spoon, you're probably struggling with drips and hit and misses. Here is the simple answer to improve on your cupcake method; all it takes is an ice cream scoop!


  1. Make the cupcake batter as usual.
  2. Arrange the cupcake liners on the cupcake tin or in muffin pans as preferred.
  3. Use an ice cream scoop with a spring release to collect the cupcake batter from the mixing bowl.
  4. Drop the batter from the scoop into the liners. Use the spring release if needed. The whole operation should now be a lot faster and mess-free than struggling with a dripping spoon!


  • A coffee grounds scoop could also be used but it is very small and does not have the spring release to assist removal of the batter.

Things You'll Need

  • Ice cream scoop
  • Cake batter
  • Cake liners
  • Cupcake or muffin pans

I thought using a piping bag can do the trick too.
