Layered cupcakes with even layers...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

How do I get layered cupcakes that have even layers, instead of the bottom layer wrapping up to the top, etc. 

 

Like this:

 

 

instead of like this: 

 

 

 

Any advice on how to achieve a more even result?

I would put in the bottom batter, tap it even and pop it into the freezer for a bit.  Then add the second layer.  Just a guess, though.

Didn't work. The bottom layer didn't seem to cook the same as the others and stuck to the bottom of the cupcake liner. There has to be a way. I'm wondering if using thicker batter might work better..

I use this method for all cakes/cupcakes that need to be layered. The different layers all need to have the same basic baking parameters, such as dividing a recipe and adding different colors. If you take different cake recipes and layer them, make sure those recipes bake the same - same oven temp and same length of time. And I'm not sure why the bottom layer stuck to the liner - was it thoroughly baked?
