I have just made my first batch of cupcakes, and usd a patty case with a really cute polka dot design. Unfortunately the oil from the cake has leaked through the cases so the design can barely be seen. Do you use a silcon mould and then transfer them into the cute cases after cooking or is there another trick to stop this happening?
I have the same problem...so dark batter goes into dark paper (atco brand?) and really pretty paper for light colored cake. I also try to use a pan of water in the oven (boiling water into a cake pan) which seems to help. Don't know why...someone passed that tip along and it can't hurt. There is a brand of baking liners out of Sweden that is thicker and absorbs less oil...I pick them up at a cake supply but have seen them online. I am sure someone can help you out with a link. HTH.
Thanks. I ended up putting another layer ove rthe outside, but it doesn't look great.
Check out www.cupcakeswirl.com . They have the greaseproof liners from Sweden (I think that's where). I REALLY like them! They seem thicker than most other liners. I love the dark brown ones! Those are the ones that I usually buy in the sleeve of 500. Plus, their shipping is unbelievably fast! I usually receive my order within 2 days from when I place it.
Thanks for posting that site...it has some great items ! I love those clear cupcake boxes and a great variety of grease proof cupcake liners !
That's them...love the selection and I can actually have the baking cups match the theme!
Lexi - that website is really neat! Thanks for sharing!!
Super - thanks guys. Might have my in-laws forward some to me here in Australia.
Thanks for sharing Lexi!
Lexi- thanks for sharing that website! The site and items for sale look great. I love the vintage looking aprons! I might have to get a few (Lord knows I'm messy when I'm baking).
Check out: www.vikingimporting.com. They have really good price if you want to buy the liners in bulk.
