so last night I made 60 mini cupcakes and left them on the counter. This morning I got up and all the wrappers pulled away from the cupcakes. Has this happened to anyone before?

I used a half recipe of WASC. And I got the wrappers from Michael's. I just don't know why this happened. they were for a cast party that I was hoping to get some hobby work from but now I can't even let him take them. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

Yes, this has happened to me once before. It was when I put the cupcakes in the refrigerator before letting them cool completely. I happens when theres too much moisture. Was there lots of humidity in the air. Maybe try letting them cool in the oven then once they are completely cooled, place them in the refrigerator. HTH

I've had that happen sometimes - not sure why it does it. I've sometimes put a little dab of icing between the cupcake and the wrapper and "stuck" the wrapper back on. I wonder if it has something to do with how much the wrapper is sprayed beforehand? Maybe it's too much Pam?

I left them on the counter to cool over night and I have never sprayed my liners with pam. do they do that at the manufacturer? I would put some frosting between the wrapper and the cupcake but I was making cupcakes for the play Annie and all my frosting is orange. I guess I freeze the frosting until I make my Mets cake and let my fam eat the cupcakes. icon_cry.gif

My cupcake pans came with tag that read: "alllow to cool no longer than 10 minutes in pan to avoid condensation". This was probably your problem. icon_smile.gif I only let my cupcakes cool for about 5 minutes in the pans then I move them onto wire racks for cooling.

When you allow them to cool in the pan you risk them sweating and causing condensation. This is why the liners pull away from the cupcakes.

This happened to me with one cupcake recipe I was experimenting with and I think it was because there was too much fat in the recipe.

Did yuu leave them in the pan overnight? OR take them out and set them on the counter or cooling rack over night? I would think leaving them in the pan would cause too much moisture. I am sorry that this happened to you.

I agree. Even my cupcake pans came with a tag saying as much.

The ONLY time I have ever had this happen was when I sprayed my liners with Pam. I never spray the liners anymore.

I can't believe I'm reading this... I had the same problem yesterday! It was also with the mini-cupcakes. I couldn't figure it out until I realized it only happened to my lemon & strawberry cake. Those two are super moist since I just add sleeve filling to my white batter. I found that if I filled them a little more, the problem went awayicon_smile.gif HTH!!

I cool mine in the pans 10 mins. then I take them out and place them in my holders to finish cooling. I let them cool for a long time before I put ice them.
