I see pictures of some cup cakes where the liner looks so pretty and bright - like it was put on after the cup cake was baked. Mine always seem to show the cake thru it and sometimes a faint oil spot. What's the trick to this? I thougth maybe my pans were too old so I bought brand new ones but my liners still don't look great.
I believe you can buy grease free liners so they stay pretty... I'll google them when I get a chance.
the foil ones stay very clean. or, you can put 2 paper ones when you bake. the outer liner will loosen some but it still stays nice and clean.
Yes, grease-proof ones are good. Check out Beryl''s or Confectionery House.
Grease resistant liners.
I've always wondered the same thing...glad someone asked about this
Smart and Final has the grease proof liners
haha.. my problem is always that i get little bits of the batter on the liners and when the little cupcakes finish baking you always end up seeing the unsightly little bits and pieces of baked batter at the top of the cupcakes... has anyone else encountered the same problem, and knows how to fix it? :p
I use an ice cream/cookie scoop to fill the cupcake tins. Less mess.
I must go find me one of those... what size scoops work best on standard and mini cupcakes anyone knows?
I use a regular grocery store ice cream scoop to fill the standard cupcake pan. It works great and it's fast. It's the only way to go when filling cupcakes.
Do you use just one scoop per cupcake with a regular scooper?
One full scoop. I dip it in to the batter till full and slide it up against the side of the mixing bowl to level it off and them dump it in to the cupcake liner. Works perfecr every time. It is the perfect amout of batter and all my cupcakes come out the same size.
P.S. for mini cupcakes I use my cookie scoop. Same way, one full scoop.
Hope this helps
