Let me first say I'm sorry because I'm sure this has been asked before, but I've tried many, many searches and just can't find the answer.

Where have you found is the best place/price to buy the paper portion cups to bake cupcakes in? I found small ones at GFS for mini cupcakes, but I guess I'll have to order the larger ones.

Thanks for the help.

Are you referring to the nut cups that have straight sides and the rolled top?

I know that my local Michael's carries them with the Wilton stuff.

Yes, that's what I'm refering to. They are more expensive if you buy them that way though (Wilton product from Michael's or Hobby Lobby). I'm looking to buy them on-line at a good price.

You mentioned buying the small ones at GFS, did you ask to see if they could get the larger ones?

I know I was on the phone yesterday with the GFS that I shop at. I was looking for unbaked 1 1/2- 2 unbaked pie shells, and I asked if they had them. They don't, but she said that if ever there is something I am needing they can always look an see, somethimes they can oder them. Might be worth asking.....

Thanks gang. I had found the Fresh Water Systems site thru another cupcake blog. Looks like it'll probably be the best price.

I don't have a GFS close to me or I'd check with them. I have to drive an hour to get there. Wish there was one closer so I had easy access to Better Creme (liquid).

Glad you were able to find them. thumbs_up.gif
The closest GFS is about an hour for me, but everything is an hour from me.. icon_rolleyes.gif
I just purchased some of the frozen bettercream of Rich's, is this the one you were talking about? Do you like it, does it hold up well?? I have been dying to try it, but haven't had a chance. I love whipped frosting, though icon_razz.gif

Yes, just sturdier and has straight sides.

Fresh Water Systems even has the dispenser for those cups. I will be buying one as soon as I move, so they don't end up all over the place.

Yep, that's what I'm talking about. I use mostly for fillings. It is light and fluffy. I think you'll like it for that reason. But it doesn't crust, so it is harder to smooth.

Does it do well sitting out? Like if I did it on a birthday cake, could it sit out for a hour or so?

Also, I have tried the Wilton recipe, taste great, but when I put it in the fridge it soaked up a horrible flavor. I don't know what happened.

Yes it sits out well! I had cupcakes sitting out overnight , boxed of course but it was just fine ! And you dont have to keep the leftover in the fridge either ( if you dont just eat the left over yumm!) If you look at my cupcakes I posted, I think 3 of the pic,s were the bettercreme and they all sat out without a problem, and they are all different flavors !
