HAS ANYONE EVER HAD THEIR CUPCAKE PAPER TO LOOK BROWNISH AFTER BAKING OR DARK? HOW DO YOU MAKE PERFECT CUPCAKES. WHAT IS REQUIRED?THERE JUST HAS TO BE A CAUPCAKE QUEEN HERE IN THE FORUM SOMEWHERE......:0)
The cupcake liners often look slightly brown after baking. The liner sticks to the cupcake and the grease from the cupcake stains the liner.
A solution is to put the cupcake and the liner down into another liner. Or some people put the cupcake down into the nut cup. There are also some grease-proof liners that are more expensive than regular liners. You'll probably have to order them on the internet.
If you want a pretty dome on your cupcake, preheat the oven to 400F. Then when the cupcakes are in the oven, turn the heat down to 350F.
If you want a flat cupcake, just bake it on the same temp that you start it at.
Fill the cupcake liner about 2/3rds full.
Some cupcake liners are more waxed than others. The more paper, less wax, the browner and uglier liner after baking.
