making cupcakes rise higher

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am trying to make baseball cupcakes (using a box cake mix). Is there anything I can add to the mix to make the cupcakes mound and rise?
does anyone know how to make a boxed cake mix rise higher?

Bake them at 375 degrees. This works every time.

Melvira told us a little trick in the cupcake thread, Preheat oven to 375, place cupcakes in oven, and immediately drop to 350, and let oven preheat back to 375 every time. Works like a charm, Ive never ever had a flat cupcake doing that, they are perfectly domed every time I bake them now!

Does this work with any kind of batter. Mine is from scratch. Also the pans I have are dark, do I have to decrease the oven temp when baking?

chassidyg, I just wanted to understand the last step you mentioned. Do you mean that after you have preheated the oven to 375, placed the cupcakes in the oven, and set it to 350, once it reaches 350 you are supposed to set it back to 375?

always bake the cupcakes at 375 degrees for 7 minutes and then back the oven down to 350. I let them bake at 350 until the are done, usually 18 - 19 minutes and when I take them out they are rounded
