I've seen in grocery stores cupcakes that they call mini's but they are bigger than the wilton mini pan. Does anyone know what pan that is and if I can buy one? The mini's are great for samples, but I think that size would be better for mini orders. TIA

I've been wondering about this too, but if we can find a tin somewhere, where would you get the cases, I haven't found any!
The only other thing I could think of is using 'baking cases' instead of 'cupcake cases' which are a lot shorter than standard cupcakes (here in the UK we call them fairy cakes) but they're still not quite the same size or shape as supermarket 'mini' cupcakes.
Sorry I can't help more

What size are you looking for? I use liners that have a 1 1/2 inch bottom that are bigger than the usual minis I have seen.

Williams-Sonoma has mini cuppie liners and pans that are larger than the Wilton mini but smaller than the standard cuppie.

I got pans bigger than a mini and smaller than standard at WalMart. They are heavy and cost around $10 each for 24 "mini" cupcakes. They are non-stick. I get my papers at KakeKreations.com. They may not be on the website, but ask for them. They carry them.

the ones on WS website look about right. I'll check Wallie world again. When I was there a few weeks ago i took a quick look and didn't see them, but i'll take another look. I'll also ask their bakery dpt.

You can find liners that have a bottom measurement of 1 1/2" at

I bought the mini pans that can hold these liners at Fantes.

I hope this helps.

Reynold's makes the 1-1/2" liners as well (they're a little bigger than the standard mini cc liners) and they sell them at my regular grocery store! I don't have a pan, but I bought them by accident thinking they were regular mini cc size

(So im not the only person with these odd liners Dreme thinks to herself)......I just switched to the small liners a couple of days ago. I have been baking in the same mini pans and then flattening out the cupcake bottom when it comes out of the pan. It would be nice to have the correct pan.

I got my liners from Country Kitchen SweetArt. It said the the liners were mini, but the they looked more like a small. I also think they are wax as well because they kinda have the wax smell in the oven. Are there ones that don't have the wax smell?

Agreed. Reynolds liners are a good size. My mini cupcake pans comes from Williams Sonoma. They are non-stick, not too small and I like them. Wilton has some that look like a good size but I have never used them.

I have also picked up mini-cupcake liners from Sur La Table. Country Kitchen has different mini cupcake ones too. www.countrykitchensa.com

Hope this helps.
