Is this ok to do?
I thought when I (briefly) looked at these things one day at the store they seemed to be shiny, which says to me they are coated with something, and therefore possibly not ok to bake in? I sure like the look of them, I don't dig the fluted liners. And how about condiment cups in general? Does anyone use these for standard size cupcakes? It's food safe?
I was thinking of the same thing. I heard that it isn't safe because once it's baked, chemicals will come out.
I think they make ones specifically for cupcakes.
Yeah, I realllllly hope someone who knows will come in and say YES! It's allll I use...(please, please, please) If I have to order one more flipping thing online this month I'm going to scream. But order it anyways. ((sigh))
I'm thinking the ones that you squirt ketchup into like at In and Out have got to be ok, right? Right?
I love these for cupcakes... the ones I have used are uncoated paper... nothing shiny
the wilton ones are waxed and not meant to be baked. they are food safe but meant for nuts and candy. you can buy souffle cups that are meant to be oven safe.
Sweet! Thanks guys. I was thinking those shiny ones were not ok. I'll find some hopefully at Smart and Final.
Google souffle cups. That is what they are called for baking and they come in many sizes. Also, they are sturdy enough that they only need a baking sheet, not muffin tins. A nut cup may be a coated product.
Yes...I love that you can just line them up on a cookie sheet, the other reason I want them!
According to the OP in this thread, she called Wilton and they said they weren't oven safe (though they didn't specify that they weren't food safe). I've baked in them before with no problems but I now buy the paper souffle cups that rainyone mentioned (SOLO brand) at foodservice supply.
What size souffle cups do you guys use like a standard size cupcake? I would love to use these to bake in, and have found 1 oz, 2 oz and 3 oz sizes - and I really don't want to end up with 5000 cups in the wrong size (and I would - 'cause I'm lucky like that.)
So, what size do you use?
I use the 3&1/4 oz souffle cups I get from Smart & Final . $5.28 for 250.
