HI CC..... ok so I'm making orange juice cupcakes for a wedding as a part of an assortment, there is NO icing its just an o.j. glaze. Usually when I do this for a bunt cake etc it HAS to be flipped over an the glaze is poured over the HOT cake as soon as it comes the oven. My question is how can I do this with the cupcakes since it will have cupcake liners?????????? HELP THANKS

Can you just dip the cupcake tops into the glaze?

No, because it doesn't absorb completely into the top like it does when its inverted....I know, it souds sooooo weird!!!!!!!!!

What if you poked holes into the top of the cupcakes with a toothpick and liberally brush on a glaze over them?

Okay, now I'm confused. Why did you poke holes in the liner? And where did you put the glaze? icon_confused.gif

Diane, the reason I was poking holes into my liner was because I was trying to replicate how I make it with either a sheet or bunt cake ( which is usually inverted....don't know why but it soaks up the glaze much better when its been inverted right after it comes out the oven).

Please forgive me for being dense... Did you poke holes in the bottom of the cupcake - liner and all - then pour the glaze onto the liner?

Could you bake it without a liner, flip it , pour on the glaze and then put it in the liner somehow?

Diane, I'm confused too (makes 2 of us) I was thinking you poked holes on the top of the cupcake to allow it to soak more of the glaze then brush the glaze on top of the cupcake.

Could please elaborate Nesha? thanks,
