The answer is yes, you can bake your 24 cupcakes at once using two trays or pans since most cupcake pans have approximately 12 individual cups for the cupcakes per pan.

 Therefore if you decide to bake your 24 cupcakes using 2 pans you have two options:

  1. You can place the two cupcake pans next to each other on the same oven rack if there is at least a space of one inch between each other and between the oven walls. 

Turn the pans 180 degrees throughout the baking process to encourage even browning

  1. You can place the two cupcake pans in the centermost position of two oven racks if your oven is broad to hold two pans at the same time (the centre is the oven’s magic spot)

Always make sure you swap the cupcake pans between the shelves a couple of times and turn them around as well throughout the baking process to encourage even browning

Tip: Making cupcakes in a cupcake pan requires cupcake liners and individual papers that go around the cupcakes
