Probably cheap liners. Try out Confectionery House or Acupcakery's. They are great and lots of colors!

Are you taking them out of the pan to cool? You need to, they will sweat if they are left in the pan and that will cause the liner to pull away.

HI DY

This only happens to me if there is too much liquid in my recipe. Or as Jamie says, the condensation between the cake and case sweating them off.

This is a popular vanilla recipe, and has the g conversions. Try that and then you'll know if its your cases.

For my white and brown I get the muffin cases from Adsa, they are great.

I have left them in the pan to cool, taken them out of the pan to cool, etc. and they always come off when I use wilton liners, or any of the silver metal liners.

However, I had great success with over 500 cupcakes that I baked yesterday (not 1 wrapper came off YEAH!) and I used good ol' "Reynold's" brand white paper liners from the grocery store!

I'm finding out very quickly that these are the best. The other good ones are from Williams-Sonoma in the kits. But they are expensive. I prefer the Reynolds better.

I bought some Americana cupcake liners from a craft store. When I took them out of the package they had a terrible odor. I'm afraid to use them to bake, so I'm going to use the white Reynolds liners in the oven and use these for a second decorative liner.

I really think it's the liners!

I've tried mixing my cake batter less and more and even tried the same batter some left in pan to cool, others taken out.

The only thing that seems to make an OBVIOUS difference is the type of liners I use!

wilton white paper liners, peel off
reynold's silver liners (w/ white paper removed) peel off
white reynold's liners stay on
gold wilton liners stay on (they're white on the inside, gold on the outside)

I really think it's the liners!

I agree.

I bought some liners last week from a national craft store chain. They were Fourth of July or Memorial Day like in design. It was Hobby Lobby. When I opened the package to store them away there is a distinctive terrible odor to them. They are made in China if that makes any difference. I couldn't put my finger on the odor, but after a few days I believe it is wax and something else, printer ink maybe.

Can you imagine cooking with these? I can't. I can't remember if I said it here, but from now I'm sticking to Reynolds White liners. The others I'll use for decoration until they are gone. No more searching for liners for me.

But I will say I have not had any problem with the Reynolds silver liners. Maybe I just got lucky. But I do take away the paper lining. It says to toss them on the package. Silly people, I use them separately also. It's like two liners in one.

Funny, I picked up some cute wilton(which I never use) flower liners to try the other day when I was at Joanns, and my cupcakes STUCK to them. I used the WASC recipe and had a hard time peeling the paper off my cuppies.....never had that happen before....hmmmmm icon_confused.gif

pecanrican Posted 12 May 2010 , 5:01pm

I have noticed that my cc separate from liners that have a wax feeling like the wilton liners. The cheap reynolds ones have always worked for me. However, if I am doing cc with a themed wrapper I just buy an extra pack and cool them on the counter top right after they come out of the oven.

Deliciously-Yummy Posted 13 May 2010 , 12:35am

Thanks for all these replies i'm loving it. So conclusion, check my liner. I'll try the ones we have in the UK to see which will work out well.
I also noticed someone saying when the cc are out of the oven they put them in another fresh liner before decorating. Do u always have to do this before decorating the ccs.
Can some please help with this procedure as my daughter's birthday is coming up and she wants ccs for all her friends.

I always thought it was the recipe? My doctored cake mix cupcakes almost always stay stuck to the liners.... but for instance, I've tried homemade scratch pound cake a few times and it tends to shrink back from the liners when it cools. Homemade pumpkin cake clings nicely to the wrappers but gets the bottom a bit oily.

I hate Wilton papers though, they don't fit the cups right and tend to pucker.
