Lessons Learnt:1. Be very careful while filling the cups, over or under filling will result in spilling or not of proper height cakes. As you can see below i learnt the hard way ;)
2. Bake at the specified temperature to avoid over baking of base, if used a high temperature the base will burn leaving the top uncooked.
