I asked this same question and got almost no response. I would really love to know the answer or any tips too!!! There has got to be a way, I've seen others have no problem and they look gorgeous, but no one has given any tips icon_confused.gif

you mayhave to double up the liners or pop the baked cupcake into a new liner once its out of the oven.

I'm not sure that another liner after baking will do it; it's not going to conform to the cupcake and give the look you want.

Doubling up on liners before baking sounds a little bit more plausible.

In the past when baking dark-colored batter, for example last time I did red velvet I used dark red baking cups. They turned out beautiful and of course red the whole way through.

Also, I've read a thread here where everyone was complaining about foil wrappers....no! In this case, foil wrappers are your best friend! They're completely opaque no matter the color of batter. I've used the supermarket foil liners by reynolds and had good results. HTH

I only use the greaseproof baking cups or the foil baking cups. No more greasy liners after baking. You can find the foil cups everywhere but I bought my greaseproof baking cups online. I got mine from here: www.vikingimporting.com.

They do make thicker/opaque colored liners that look amazing on cupcakes. You can definitely find them on line. But as far the ones they sell with characters or flowers etc, I never get them because the pictures usually get lost when the cupcakes are baked. icon_sad.gif

i do agree coz i tried that & they just looked funny..maybe i should try doubling up on liners before baking..foil liners are great, no matter what the color of the batter is, unfortunately, our local suppliers here have limited colors to offer (red, green ,silver & gold only)..i'm gonna need bright orange liners for 200 cc's for a july wed..i will just have to check if orange foil liners are available online..thanks for all your input guys..really appreciate them icon_smile.gif

Bobhope - here is a link showing the cupcake cases i use down here in Western Australia.
http://www.champagnecakes.com.au/flowers1.html
Scroll down the page and you will see the BRIGHT ORANGE ones.
I have just measured them and they are 1 3/4 inches across at the base
and 2 1/2 inches across at the top.
They are made in the UK -
$6.50 for 100 cases - Australian $$$s.

I am seeing the supplier tomorrrow night (Wednesday) and i can ask if she does International Orders.
I am sure she does as she does *paypal* and *ebay*

They are excellant for high temperatures - and stay as *crisp* after baking as before.... icon_smile.gif yet they peel away from the cooked cakes without tearing....or distroying the cakes.
Just Brillante.

If she doesn't do international - and i see you require them before July - i can always grab a few hundred and post them to you.

Rembering that they are BRIGHT ORANGE and will stay BRIGHT ORANGE.
In my *photos* you can see the bright purple, bright green and bright yellow ones.

Hope this helps.

Bobhope - i went and saw my supplier last night as planned and spoke to her about your predicament.
YES - SHE DOES INTERNATIONAL ORDERS - thumbs_up.gificon_lol.gif
And you just pay via paypal - which is easy peasy.

Her name is Dawn - and she is excellant - if you order one day she will post off the next for you.

Glad i could help...just yell out if there is anything you have trouble finding and i will do my best to hunt it down for you over here.
