I'm making cupcakes for my daughters 1st birthday soon. It never occurred to me to buy double the amount of liners b/c they are cute paper ones and they just look messy when done. Well maybe not messy but the colors no longer POP and to me it's just not pretty.

I have never put another wrapper on once they have baked. So this might be dumb. When do I put the additional wrapper on? I don't want any oil to leak through the 2nd wrapper.

But at the same time, how do I get the 2nd paper to look like it belongs on there? And not like I just put a 2nd on there? Does that make sense? I don't want the 2nd wrapper sticking out any around it. I want it to look like the wrapper it bakes in, kinda like its attached.

Hmmm.... Have you thought about putting a plain, grease proof liner inside your pretty ones prior to baking?

I don't have the answer sorry, but I have seen somewhere on Flick they had way more than 2 wrappers on each CC, my guess is that they bake them with 3+ wrappers I don't think the oil can penetrate that!

I do know that grease proof makes a difference... and I guess the more money you spend on cupcake liners the better they look outta the oven. I baked baseball cupcakes- 8 dozenof them yesterday- in Wilton baseball liners. Came outta the oven you couldn't tell if there was a baseball or mitt or bat... disappointing.

So if you doubled up or trippled up on say the wilton ones- then you see the patterns? They don't seperate or spread? Is there a trick or sugggestion?

I read in many places - including their own forum, that Wilton's has some of the worst wrappers around.

I've also read (but haven't tried) Reynolds foil wrappers. People rave about them.

I'm currently working my way through a box of Reynolds' plain white ones. I found them at my local GFS, they came 450 in a box and were less than 4 dollars.

The photos of cuppies on CC and other sites have such clean looking wrappers.......I've tried two wrappers...they just pop apart when done baking.. I've tried adding one after baking......pops apart..........Is there a wrapper that is grease proof, hold it's shape and let the true color come thru.....

For solid colors I usually go to confectionery house (.com). I've baked Devil's food in their magenta liner and the color doesn't change at all.

I use the Reynold's Stay Bright foil wrappers. I love them. The look great before and after baking. The only down side is that there are only about 8 designs.
