It might be the type of cupcake liner you are using.....bleach free liners can cause this problem. So I would try another brand of cupcake liner.

It's your recipe. Not all recipes convert straight to cupcakes without leavening or egg adjustments. Post what you are using and I can try and help.

I have baked cupcakes in every type of wrapper out there, from super cheep to super expensive and I've even made my own out of parchment (cheep and expensive), and I have never had my cupcakes pull from the paper because of the paper. It's 100% of the time the recipe.

I had the same problem a couple of times and, having researched the issue, people suggested it was underbaking. Since then I've added an extra two minutes to the baking time and so far, the problem hasn't returned. I've used three types of liners since addressing the baking time and all have been fine.

Another thing I do is leave the cakes to "set up" just a couple of minutes in the tin before removing the cakes onto a wire rack. Apparently steam/moisture can cause the liners to pull away, so removing the cakes from the tray soon after coming out of the oven can stop that.
