Cupcake Liners Are Sticking To The Cake Too Much

I made some cupcakes today and I thought liner was difficult to pull off the cake. It really hugged the cupcakes and and I had to tear it off in strips.

I used WASC cake. I baked 20 minutes at 300 degrees and then 20 minutes at 325.

I used paper liners.

Does anyone know what I did wrong? Should the liners have been coated with something?

I don't know if this has anything to do with the cupcakes sticking to the papers, but 40 minutes for cupcakes seems like a really long baking time! I usually bake mine at 325ish for 20 minutes, give or take, and they're great.

Edited to add...I make the large cupcakes and only bake them for 20ish minutes.

I was having the same problem the other day but when I let them completely cool over night they came off fine.

Yeah, I thought so too. Next time, I will lower the time.

Good to know. I am actually freezing them overnight like I do cakes. I just put them in a pan and covered them with foil.



Also, they didn't dome. Should I add more baking soda? I am using Kakeladi's WASC recipe.

Thanks for your advice.
