Heaped or Level?

Custard Powder.  Canon S120
13th January 2016

I hate using measuring spoons and then not using a true level measure to get the designed quantity, but a one-person dose of custard powder is almost, but not quite, a table-spoon measure.  

If I measure correctly with the powder level, then the custard is too thin;

If I put a proper 'maximum sustainable' heap on the measuring spoon, then the custard ends up as one solid lump.

The necessary quantity is half way between, which really bugs me.   I may have to print a few on the 3D printer to get a measuring spoon that needs to be properly level.
