quick question....does anyone know why when I make my cupcakes my paper pulls away from the cupcakes and I have to pipe icing in between them to make them stick before I put icing on them. Sorry, it's off subject. Any help would be helpful.

Thanks

I'm not sure of the answer to this but I have seen it asked quite a bit of times in this forum so I'm sure there is an answer out there. Good luck!

I only usually have that problem with vanilla cake. I would love to hear how others solve that problem...

My guess is you're allowing them to cool in the pans. I take the cupcakes out of the pan as soon as they come out of the oven. Condensation will form between the pan and the papers if you let them cool in the pan.

I never have paper issues. Let us know if that solves it for you!

I do let them cool in the pans! I have never heard that was a bad thing! If this solves my problem you are so my new idol!

Hi. When I make my cupcakes, I spray the pan only with non-stick baking spray. Then I put my cupcake liners in and fill them. I find that if spray gets on the inside of the liners, the cupcakes will pull away from them. Also, I only cool the cupcakes in the pans for about 10 minutes. Hope this helps!

I never ever spray non-stick on the pan or the liners when making cupcakes. I don't understand the reason behind it. They won't stick to the pan unless you over-fill with batter and it comes over the edge.

I always spray lightly just on the top of the pan as a pre-caution. I never used to, but sometimes if I accidently splash some batter, it's a pita to get off. I have shaky hands so maybe that's why. lol

Ahh..I see icon_smile.gif Try using an ice cream scoop to fill those cupcake pans! Works like a dream and I can be a klutz!

I've never had that problem. Are you using grease proof liners? the cool-in-pan theory makes sense, too. I always pull mine out of the pan and let them cool on a rack.

don't some nuts cups have a grease proof coating? that may be the problem.

I have also seen this question before - and have had it asked of me in person - i honestly and truely believe it has something to do with the type of cases one is using.

I remember using those glysterene cases (shiny paper) once and this happened to me.
Never again... icon_confused.gifthumbsdown.gif

Then i switched to using the thicker waxed type cup cases - and have never had a problem.

Depending on how many cupcakes i make at a time - is whether i whip them out of the muffin tins straight away or leave them in the tins to cool a tad.
I honestly think it has something to do with the manufacturing of the paper cases.
I make mud cupcakes (like a missisippi cake) - vanilla sponge cupcakes - carrot and poppyseed cupcakes which are all of different textures and they never pull away from the heavy waxed paper cases.

Hmmm - just as a foot note - how high do you fill your cases?
I fill mine 3/4 no matter what batter i am using - cuuld you not be filling yours high enough - just a thought?
