Here are some useful conversions and measurements you might need.

Measuring Cups

Dry Ingredients
When using a measuring cup shake the dry ingredients loosely. DO NOT tap the cup or push down the ingredients unless the recipe tells you to. Level the top of the measuring cup / spoon with a knife.

Liquid Ingredients
When measuring liquids make sure you place the cup on a flat surface to check your accuracy at eye level.
