I have never used the silver cups before, and have a cupcake wedding in a couple of weeks. It seems that they are made up of two parts, a paper liner and a metal one. Do I put the paper liner in a muffin pan, bake it, and then cupcake in the metal one after baking? Or bake the whole thing?

TIA!

I always bake them with both the silver and the paper. The paper liner seems pretty thin to use alone.

Another tip for wedding cupcakes. I always spray my liners with cooking spray before filling with batter to help the cupcake come out easily.

I did a cupcake tower for a weding last week. I seperated the cupcake liners. I baked in the plain liners (inserted into a cupcake pan) & after the cupcakes were cool, I placed them in the silver liner & then decorated. This way there is no way of the outer liner getting messy from raw or baked cupcake mixture.

You don't need a muffin tin. I just put about 2 dozen on a cookie sheet (with both liners together), fill them and bake them. They keep their shape really nicely.

I just watched my BIL eat the inside paper lining with the cupcake, he thought the silver was the lining. I found them difficult to work with. I don't think I'll use them again.

I just thought that the paper liners were for packaging purposes. I always separate them and bake in the silver lining. I recently made cupcakes like this and it worked out fine in just the silver lining.

Oh boy. I wasn't expecting so many different answers! I purchased extra cups, so I guess I'll open a package and try different ways.

Thanks everyone!

On the packages that I have bought from the grocery store, they say that the liners are NOT to be used (Metal pieces or something). Just line the silver cups on a cookie sheet and bake. They are so easy...no messes.

blue123, so what your saying is don't use the paper liner , throw that out and use just the silver? I'm just wondering why the paper liner would be there then? I'm confused

I use the paper liner, BUT I look at each one because sometimes you do get metal flakes in them. I just throw those ones out. I would think if you baked right in the metal you would have more flakes. Does this make sense, or am I just a flake icon_biggrin.gif ?
I just looked at the packaging on mine and it doesn't say anything about not using the paper liners icon_confused.gif . Maybe each brand has their own guidelines.

I'm pretty sure the brand name is Reynolds. I purchase them at Wa-Mart and our grocery store. Sorry guys, that's all I know. Those are the only kind available down here. Maybe they just say that on the package so that we will have to buy more liners icon_rolleyes.gif

The Reynolds aluminum cupcake wrappers are all I ever use. I have never used the paper cups they are packed with. They are there to make it easier to seperate the cups quickly without damaging the foil cups. I love these cups. They keep my cupcakes super moist and I find that if I ever have left overs that I need to freeze for my kiddos they preserve the cupcakes wonderfully and keep their moisture. Good Luck with your experimenting! icon_biggrin.gif

I had the Wilton silver cups, so I did the smart thing and called Wilton customer service.

The gal I talked to said to bake the cakes in the paper/metal liner, just as they were.

I also tried to bake a cuppy in the liner just on a cookie sheet and it spread out, so I put the rest in muffin pans.

I use the Wilton ones (although I used gold, not silver) and separated out the paper lines. I used the paper ones for muffins a few days later. The foils were great - quick, held their shape, etc.

I thought the metal cups were there so that you did not need a cupcake pan to hold the liner in?
