I had to make a lot of cupcakes. I made them the night before the event and wanted them to be moist and taste fresh baked. I let them cool completely then put them into Ziploc storage bags overnight. When I took them out the next morning to frost, my cupcake liners had fallen off of half of them. I am completely baffled as to why this happened. Can anyone help me?

My only thoughts are maybe the cupcakes were cool on the top but maybe still warm in the center and when they were put in the ziploc bag they steamed.

I agree with 2Cupcakes. I have had this happen when I have put them in a carrier and they were not completely, 100% cool. The liners will slip right off!

What kind of liners did you use? I purchased these swirl ones and that happened to me when I used them. I baked in them 2 separate times and the same thing happened.

I've had that happen when I've been a little rough when I removed them from the pan, but the "steaming" idea sounds plausible, too.

I'm not sure what kind I used, but they were probably Wilton or Reynolds. I tried again over the weekend. I had a large cupcake order. I baked them very early in the morning and did not seal them in an airtight container until late at night. The next day the liners were still intact and I was very pleased.
