When baking cupcakes, do you prefer the look of the crinkled/regular cupcake liners or the nut cups? Why? Do you like the variety of the regular cups? Do you dress up the nut cups?

I am a big fan of the regular liners, and I also like to get the different designs, depending on the color sceme/occasion.

I like the nut cups. I just think they look neater. I put a small cut in the cup to make it easier to peel off. I don't do anything to them normally, but it is easy to tie a ribbon around them because they are straight sided and you can dab on some hot glue if you need to because the paper is so heavy. They have all the patterns for the paper baking cups, but truthfull.. you can't really see it after you bake them.

I rarely ever use the foil nut cups. Only for fancy adult type parties or to make mini-cheesecakes in.

Otherwise I will get themed papers or colorful cupcake papers. A Baking Tip I use - Spray the inside of the papers with a quick mist of non-stick spray before putting in the batter, it guarantees easy cupcake removal.

I buy my themed cupcake papers at walmart, grocery, michaels, party supply stores. I can find the foil nut cups at my local grocery. I think you can also get them online from party supply websites.

I think it depends on the cupcake. Nut cups look elegant, but I don't think they suit all cupcakes.

I get the paper nut cups at Michael's or my local cake store. You can order them on-line too in larger quantities and they turn out to be much cheaper. I have never seen a foil nut cup. I have used foil cupcake liners.. I don't like them as I think they leave a taste on the cake.

I love the ease of the self standing foil cupcake liners. I can fill up my sheet cake pans and bake over 4 dozen cupcakes at a time in my regular oven. When I use muffin tins I can only bake 2 dozen at a time. So I really like that it cuts my baking time in half. Although I don't like that they come out flatter...but that's just a technicality, no one else ever notices!

That's why I like the nut cups too.. you can just line them up on a sheet pan and bake up a bunch.

If you do a google search for nut/souffle/portion cups, you should find them.
