I decided to make my carrot and banana cake recipes in the form of cupcakes for the first time and now that I am all done, I try to pull one of the liners off and it's taking 1/2 the cupcake with it - I mean it is sticking like crazy.

Has anyone been able to salvage cupcakes that are already baked and doing this? Do I freeze, wrap, refridgerate, seal?? I just don't know what to do.

I will spray with Pam next time but I am not sure what to do now. I could just feed the remnants to my kids but I had really hoped to make these with cream cheese swirls for samples. Thanks in advance.....

I know it's later in the day now but are they still doing this? Were they still warm when you tried earlier? Usually if you let them sit for awhile, maybe even refrigerate them (covered), they should be fine. I never spray my liners.

Sometimes I have the opposite problem...the liners are peeling back once out of the oven. That drives me cray and I'm still trying to figure out what it is.

icon_redface.gif So........I'm a big dork. I waited for them to cool and they are fine now. I was trying to take them off before they cooled. Thanks for the help.

I was just going to say you should wait till they are cooled off. icon_lol.gif I've freaked out about the same problem in the past only to have them come off perfectly clean an hour later. Glad you were able to figure out the problem and your cupcakes weren't ruined. icon_biggrin.gif

I read here that if you take them out of the oven just a smidgen before they're "done" this won't happen. I can't vouch for this, as I only do CCC, so I smoosh them together when icing, but hope it works for you icon_smile.gif .
