I'd love to try cupcake wraps, but so far I haven't had any luck with the regular rippled looking paper cups. I'm having to use the stiff cups so that they don't disfigure the sides of my cupcakes. icon_sad.gif I'm wondering if the aluminum ones would hold their shape better in the pans and come out with prettier cupcakes?

TIA!

I don't find much difference in terms of the sturdiness, the paper ones always worked fine for me. However, I do notice that the foil ones peel off much easier, leaving the cupcake intact.

Have you tried silicone baking cups?

No because these are to sell from my bakery, so I want to leave the cup on.

I use foil lined paper liners or paper lined foil liners. Both work great, look wonderful and don't pull away from the cupcake.

I just used the new cups from my local cake store, the are thicker and keep their color no matter what batter you use, the only issue I have is they pull away from the cake sometimes during the cooling period any suggestions? Thanks all icon_smile.gif

bluedaisies, I used to use only foil in my bakery but they were just too glitzy for my decor and my branding. I wantedbrown parchment. After many samples, I found a great one. I use the regular cupcake liners for charities and school donations. I use the tulip for all customers. These are wonderful. And the price is good for quantities.
