I am making toy story themed cupcakes and got these cute decorative liners. I made chocolate cupcakes, baked, cooled, and went to frost them.. only to see that the liner has been completely discolored!! I think the waxes or whatever is on the liner burns.. should I have put an aluminum liner in between the cake and the decorative liner?

If they are a light color liner the chocolate cake will show through some too.

Its the grease from the cupcakes that causes some liners to discolor. You can put another liner on them now so that you can see the design but thats about all you can do. You didnt do anything wrong its just the liner. Some bake up and still look really pretty but most do not.

so do you think if I double layered them it would help? like aluminum and then decorative? I can try and remake them in white.. but considering its grease.. I dont know if thatll make a difference

I would just bake them in plain white cups and put the decorative ones on after. It might be the heat too.

Would it help to bake them without the liner, let them cool and then slip the liner on? I know I find this problem frustrating.

Id bake them with a plain liner so I wouldnt have to worry about greasing the pan and such.
