Hello. I just orded 2 packs of Wilton cupcake baking cups. They are tall and ridged.
The package says to just put them on a cookie sheet, fill half way and bake. My first question is does the backing time change without the metal around them to conduct heat?

I also wanting to be sure that the colour of the liner isn't going to change once I bake in them. I have used printed liners before and have had either grease bleed through them or the design is lost when baking a choc cake in them. Would I maybe be better to bake in a reg. liner and drop them into the larger baking cup?

Thanks for any feedback.

Wilton has tons of cupcake baking cups, you might want to be a tad more specific:

Found that the silicone baking cups state that they can be used in muffin/cupcake pans or on cookie/jelly roll sheets:

Wilton has other silicone baking cups:

I've used those. THe chocolate shows through and they get a little wrinkly once they've cooled. Be very careful how much you fill them my first batch totally overflowed. Not pretty!
I find I get better results baking in regular wrapper then popping into the fancy wrappers. The grease from the BC also changes the wrapper a bit.
You can see what I mean here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sugarhoneytea/sets/72157626998114822/
The Wedding ones were baked in the wrapper. The pink frill with the flowers I placed in after - you can see how the BC changed the colour. (To fix this I made sure that the frill was "greasy" all the way around so it was less noticeable. Not much I could do about the Sunflower one though icon_sad.gif

Thanks Kaat. I think I might just bake in plain papers and drop in. I think it would save me a headache. I dont have a lot of extra liners to use if they don't turn out the first time around.

These are almost like the ones I will be using. Mine are purple with a damask design.
