Hi Cupcakers,
I have a bride who wants square cupcake and I said "Sure, I can do that"
Is there such a thing as square cupcake papers? I have been told there is a pan available in squares (not mini muffins).
Any info. you can pass on to me would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Lori V.

I just saw square cupcake liners at Michaels craft store in the baking section. IF you don't have one near you, you may be able to get the liners on line.

I dont see any reason why you would need to buy a square pan when I make square cupcakes I just bake a sheet cake and cut it into squares I also believe there are round liners at michael's.

If you just cut out square cakes, how do you attach the cupcake papers?
I dont want to make fondant covered cakes. They are having a dessert buffet and want the papers on them?


Also, does anyone else have issues with the cupcake papers pealing off from the cupcake as they cool?

Wilton's has some new square cupcake silicones. If you just add a liner in there, I am told it takes the shape of the silicone icon_smile.gif

Put "square" in the search engine on that page and it will show you the square cupcakes.

man I just used these with the round cupcake papers and what drama I had. Don't recomend using the new wilton shaped silicone cupcake until they come out with the papers to match!

I have square muffin pans, but for the life of me, I can't remember where I got them! As far as papers, I have never seen square ones. Perhaps you could google either the pan or the papers and see what you get. If you at least had the pan, you could probably shape the round liner to fit the pan. Sorry, that probably wasn't much help!

nah, the darn papers didn't go into the squares..lol

snarkybaker Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 2:34am

You can use round papers in a square pan. The pan is more important.

RisqueBusiness Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 2:49am

I don't like they way the round papers sit inside the pans.

This site has some square liners

http://beryls.safeshopper.com/278/10582.htm?524

I have ordered chocolate transfer sheets from them and they are a good company. I hope the link worked.

Vreeke Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 3:40am

I have seen those liners on Beryl's but unfortunately they are only 3/4" tall. I'm looking for something more cupcake like.
Thanks,

Chef, those pictures on flickr are Petit Fours, which are not cupcakes...I'm sure as a CHEF you've made dozens of them.

it's not the pans nor the silicone baking cups that I'm talking about...it's the cupcake papers themselves.

The round cupcake papers sit inside the shaped cupcake makers awkwardly..I even tried the aluminum cups that divide the papers. I mean it's doable...but they just don't look good, at least to me.

The sides of the shaped cupcakes flare up and then dip down at every corner, it's hard to know when to stop filling them and they are also hard to "dip" into the icing.

I was trying to make a "glaze" to dip them into as I've seen them, so pretty, in some book or other...(have to be at work to look at which one it is..)

julzs71 Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 4:02pm

If you don't find them make them yourself. just use parchment and cut them out. You could wrap a rbbon on them when your done or wrap it in plastic tissue paper.

icon_lol.gif great idea, but who is going to run my business and get the other 9 cakes that need to be done out? icon_redface.gif

I'll leave that to the people that have the luxury of time to do stuff like that...as a matter of fact...anyone in Miami that I can send my clients to if they want these "shaped" cupcakes??? thumbs_up.gif

Sorry if my nick caused you problems, it's Chief Cook & Bottle Washer shortened down to Chefshar, icon_wink.gif
I'm a Hairdresser/Mom. Never made Petit Fours in my life, lol.
The way the cakes were displayed is what caught my eye.

Good Luck anyway.

Hi - I found this on ebay...granted, it is pricey and probably not realistic but since you are a business and could potentially use them in the future, figured I would show you... http://cgi.ebay.com/LOT-6-CHICAGO-METALLIC-HEAVY-SQUARE-MUFFIN-PANS-Used_W0QQitemZ330076609648QQihZ014QQcategoryZ95090QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem
And shoot....maybe I misunderstood and you only need the liners - not the pans...sorry icon_redface.gif

yes, the liners!! I have plenty of those already!! lol...great for muffins though, and great for space saving packing!

CakeDiva73 Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 6:26pm

Well, I googled like a mad woman and can't find 'em anywhere....... sorry

ge978 Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 6:38pm

Vreeke...not sure if this is the size you need...but here's the link for a company that I think carries them... http://www.qualitapaper.com/html/CandyCups_WhiteCups.htm

julzs71 Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 6:44pm

make the cupcakes in the pan without the liner. When you take it out cool and then dip the bottom in chocolate or pourable fondant to get the finished look.

this would defeat the purpose of baking cupcakes...cupcakes are called cup cakes because they are baked in little paper cups

Your idea is a good one, but that's not what I wanted to do. I was trying to make samples for a large show and handing someone a chocolate coated cupcakes would be messy and defeating the purpose of having a portion in a tiny, portable little paper cup.

a lot of people cut petit four sized portions into chocolate melts, like I said, a great idea...a nice look...but that wouldn't work for what I had in mind..

sorry icon_redface.gif

I'm going to go check out the link that GE posted...let's see if there are cupcake holders there for those stupid Wilton silicone cups..

Oh, and I'm sure that if enough people complain, they will have them out shortly! or they will just remove the product!

I do purchase a lot of novelty silicone ice trays and use them with cake and then glaze with chocolates! thumbs_up.gif

julzs71 Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 7:39pm

sorry Risque, I was actually suggesting for Vreeke, just in case she couldn't find papers for her square cupcake.
Goodluck on yours though.

Momof3boys Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 8:50pm

I'm so confused. I thought all of the suggestions were for the OP? NO? I guess I'm totally lost now. carry on.......

icon_razz.gif You are not the only one who got confused! Guess I should read the posts better....still can't find any square papers though..... icon_sad.gif

RisqueBusiness Posted 5 Mar 2007 , 11:41pm

lol icon_lol.gif

yep..just spent 1/2 a day looking..no square papers...to be found anywhere ..well ..large enough to fit those Wilton silicone cupcake forms..and I was so excited when I bought them... icon_cry.gif
