!!!!! WHAT CAUSES THE CUPCAKES PAPERS TO LEAVE THE CAKE??? IT IS MOSTLY WITH THE YELLOW CAKE. IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN WITH BOX MIXES AS WELL AS HOME MADE. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ANSWERS. I AM NEW AT THIS CHATTING FORUM, SO I DON'T KNOW WHO TO ADDRESS.

Sorry I can't help, mine usually stick too well and have to be peeled away, but here is a bump and maybe someone who knows will see your post and have a suggestion..

Good luck...

I noticed this happened with buttery cakes like when I made WBH golden butter cake. It just means your cake is too moist, I guess. either use a different recipe or a different paper liner. icon_smile.gif

are u leaving them in the tray? The condensation form the cooling cakes is one of the worst offenders for peeling papers

Good point! Take them out of the tray to cool on racks or on the counter. Mine usually stick to the wrapper, so I'm not much help. I've only had one batch that kind of peeled away a little bit and I think I left them in the tray!

Me too, I only had the problem when I left them on the tray to cool. Atter reading this same advice on another thread, I tried it and of course CakeCentral advice being always right, they don't fall off anymore.

i just baked 14 dozen, and turned them out after 10 minutes and out of all of them, probably 4 papers came off.

I've never had this problem either but I read elsewhere to definitely let them cool outside the pans. I usually take mine out within a few minutes. They are hot to pick up but I just deal with it or use a spoon to scoop them out.
