I feel like an idiot asking this.... but here goes....

So I have never used the foil baking cups before. I bought a package of the Reynolds Foil baking cups and there is a plain white baking cup in each one. Does this mean I need to bake in teh white cup and then put it into the foil after they are done being baked? Can I just bake them right in the foil cup?

Help please! I need to get these bad boys in the oven pronto!

You can bake directly in the foil cup. I think that the white paper liners are used to separate each foil cup from the other. Keep the white liners because you can use them to bake more cupcakes. I don't waste anything.

I bake with the white AND foil cup together.

Thanks guys! I really appreciate your help!

I am going to put them in just the foil cup and see how it goes.

Me too. I think the white paper makes it easier to peel the paper from the cupcake and the foil cup helps hold the shape.

In the ones I bought, the package even says you don't need a cupcake pan. Just put them in a regular cake pan and the foil liner will hold the shape.

These foil cups are so strong that I even use them for candle holders!

I bake them directly in the foil liner. I also sometimes hang onto the white ones for when I bake for family and friends
