> Wow, I love the idea of the final with a wide opening at the smaller end. I am going to get one to use with a set of special scoops I have. I got them at bed bath and beyond. There are three scoops in the set, each one of them corresponds to the three regular size muffin tin pans. One for the mini muffins, one for the standard size muffins, and one for the supersized muffins. Thanks so much for such a wonderful tip!
