I have read on here that many people have used candy melts to make the "liner" of the wilton giant cupcake pan. I tried this a couple of times and both times it stuck to the pan horribly. Others have said it just pops out, oviously I am doing something wrong. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Compare your way of doing it with the below website. It has a pictured tutorial. It might help.

Thanks for the posting - I am making one for this weekend!

How far in advance can you make your chocolate liner?
Should I store it in the fridge?

The candy melt liner doesn't need to go in the fridge once it is set. If you keep it in something airtight (large zippy bag, plastic container, wrapped in cling wrap) it will be fine for a long time so it is fine to make it ahead of time and then wrap it up. Just be sure to keep it somewhere cool and out of direct sunlight so it doesn't melt or fade.

I found the silicone mold easier to make the chocolate liner from since it folds down and is easy to take off the chocolate. I have one in my pics. I tried the wilton pan initially and had trouble, even after freezing like many said. Good luck

Thank you!
I just made it! Success! lol I used the cake mold pan - I wasn't expecting it to slide right out so easily ..
I titled it over and it just fell out - thankfully it didn't crack! lol
