I often use pretty cupcake liners for my cupcakes but after they're baked they lose their color and the design is muted. Is there a way to keep this from happening? I seen the wrappers that are used over the outside of the liners but I'd like to use the liners only.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Diana

I've experienced the same problem. I've even double lined & still have the same results. I've seen other pictures where they use a white liner then sit the cupcake in the pretty liner. I'm not crazy about that look but it's the best I've seen. I'll be interested in what others have tried.

I bake with white or recycled liners. After they are cooled I add the pretty liner or a second liner. I add a little drop of corn syrup to make it stick. Make sure the pleats line up.

I use grease proof liners. I haven't seen them in patterns, but I've used several bright colors...they maintain their true colors after baking! I especially like using the "ruby red" color when I bake red velvet cupcakes.

Reynolds has come out with some really pretty ones. They are foil with the design on the outside and they work awesome!!!

i just "test drove" those yesterday and they were fabulous...and they were easy to get off the cupcakes (which is the thing that has kept me from foil before).
