Sorry if this is a repeated question and completely vague. I have never used foil cupcake liners before and i just bought a packet from the supermarket which had paper liners inside the foil ones.

Can you bake directly in the foil ones or do they have to be lined with paper i.e double cases? icon_redface.gif

You can bake in the foil ones by themselves.

Yes, you bake using the foil ones by themselves, the papers are there to help separate. However, I use the paper ones by themselves too when I am baking just for my family or don't need to be "pretty."

The benefit of using the foil wrappers is that you can stand them on a cookie sheet if you do not have a muffin tin, or need to make more than your tin will hold.

I think the foil ones are prettier than the other regular papers! Good Luck!

After I added my comment above, I found gold foil ones at the store! I am now trying to decide if the cupcakes I am making this week will be gold or silver?? Hmmmm. (Boston Cream cupcakes with choc glaze on top)

Oooh hold that thought - I'm coming over! lol

I had no idea they would stand on a regular tray either - good to know.

Thanks ladies!

How do you prevent the cupcakes from spreading out too much when using the foil cups?

I haven't had much luck using the foil liners on a cookie sheet. They did hold up, but they widened out at the top and the cupcakes ended up being different sizes, and they wouldn't fit on my cupcake tree. I love the foil liners when I use them in my cupcake pans.

I love the foil liners and use them as much as humanly possible. My problem with paper liners in they look greasy after they have been baked.

mmmmm...cupcakes
Now I want one.
