I'm going to be making cupcakes in Starbucks Sampler cups for a festival coming up, but here's my problem/question....I saw these on several different blogs and the bakers have different methods of baking says to not let them touch while baking or they will stick....and another said to place them as close together as possible or they will have dark scorched looking places on the lips of the cups (she said she crowded as many as she could in a 13x9 pan).....another said to place them in a cupcake pan....does anyone know what is the best method of baking them....? I don't have enough cups to experiment....
Hope someone can help.....

My daughter expressed the same concern....but I'm going to take the chance...I don't figure a Starbuck's representative will be at the one day festival in Podunk, Oklahoma ready to fine me for using the Starbuck's cups.....
I have no advice on the matter, and I'm sure the wiser person would not use them without some sort of permission to do so.... icon_smile.gif

It looks intriguing to me, I'm curious about your results. Legality aside though, where are you getting the cups?

I went to our local Starbucks, told them I was making cupcakes and could I have some of their taster cups...the kid said sure and gave me a sleave of them.....

have you had a chance to try it out? if so, did the cups scorch?

I have made them, but with a local coffee shop's cups...same type of cup though. I set them in a lipped cookie sheet side by side. I wrapped foil around the individual cup tops to keep them from browning (kinda like a pie), and they turned out great! Good Luck to you all!

@SweetDreamsBoutique.....I won't be making mine for another 2 weeks....but I'll share the experience...!!

@jdelaney....thanks for sharing your method...the aluminum foil is a great tip...I will definitely utilize it to prevent the browning.... icon_smile.gif

I'm anxious to hear how they turn out and what method you ended up using.

Personally, I would think Starbucks would like the free adverstising from the cups. However, they might not be thrilled to know the employees are handing them out for free. ha ha

I made some that were so much fun to do.. The Starbucks store in my little town gave me some cups, as I promised them a sample of each of the cupcakes I made.. icon_biggrin.gif I actually baked the cupcakes as you normally would, and then used two, with filling inbetween, in each cup. I removed the liner from the cupcake before putting them in the cups. Here is a picture of them.. I have the recipes also, if you are interested.. hth

I know this is old but I love how this looks. I'm just wondering how do you eat them? Do you need a spoon or do you peel away the cup like you would a cupcake liner? Thanks.
