Help!! I am donating 100 cupcakes to a breast cancer event on Saturday, I started making Macsmom strawberry and lemon and they are not coming out of the liners clean???? I have made some WASC and chocolate and they are fine? I even went out and paid way too much for Wilton liners and the same. I keep wasting so much.
You could try reducing the sugar in the recipe. Fruit recipes, especially, tend to stick because between the sugar in the cake and the sugar in the fruit, there's a little too much, although Macsmoms recipes are generally very well tested, by now. Why are you taking them out of the liners? I just leave them in till it's time for them to be eaten. You might also try spraying the liners with PAM before filling them, if you really need to remove them from the liners.
I do not take them out of the liners I noticed while I was "sampling"
Oh, well, duh, I guess I could have thought of that if I'd tried a little harder! Hope you find a solution to your problem!
I can think of several reasons why cake may stick to the paper liner: not enough fat in the recipe; the cake is slightly under baked; or the liner is not a good quality. Marianna has a good suggestion - pan spray will help.
