When using those white nut cups, do you just put them on a cookie sheet and bake them?

You can't bake in the nut cups. They aren't safe for the oven. If you do, your whole house will start to stick because they are coated in wax.

So you just put them in a regular liner and then when they are done cooling, you put them in the nut cup.

Someone has a great nut cup tutorial so that the nut cup comes off quickly. Let me see if I can find it for you.

Thanks for the tutorial. That is sweeeet!!
I know that the new wilton nut cups are not oven safe but how about other nut cup brands?

Just read the back of package - if they are coated in wax, you can't bake them. You could probably just look at them and tell too. If they are shiny, they have wax on them.

I get Souffle cups (3&1/4 oz) from Smart & Final . they are the same size as the Wilton nut cups . They are safe to bake in cause they are just paper no wax or coating . They come in a Big package 250 cups for $5.

Charmed, take "nut cup" out of the name. Look for souffle cups, they make them in sizes all the way down to the "mini muffin" size like we all like. I found every size imagineable at Smart and Final. icon_smile.gif

You can buy "nut cups" without the wax. I just did some mini cupcakes in them and they turned out AWESOME. The cups I bought were hanging next to the wilton cups, but again, the ones I bought were not lined with wax.

OMG. I am glad I read this. I just bought two packages of the Wilton nut cups to bake some mini cupcakes. Guess I won't be doing that now.! icon_smile.gif

I've never heard of Smart and Final down here so I guess I'll have to shop around.

Thanks for the heads up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you don't have a Smart & Final I think they have them at Costco or Sam's club . They are a pretty common item at restaurant supply stores also.

My daughter and son-in-law laugh their heads off when I refer to those as nut cups. Silly kids! I use the 4 oz. souffle cups that I buy at Cash & Carry. They're not coated, so they work fine. I do put them on a cookie sheet to bake, and I bake for the same time as a regular cupcake.
