Perfect Scoop. To ensure a batch of even sized cupcakes, use a 1/3 cup-capacity(80ml) ice-cream scoop to transfer the mixture into the cupcake papers.

Icing Cupcakes. A palette knife is useful for soft icing.It's flexible, long flat blade ensures even spreading and a smooth surface. Ice down towards the cupcake paper to make a cone shape, then flatten the top and run the palette knife around the edges to smooth out icing.
