Could someone direct me to where I could get dark brown cupcake holders - that don't have that yucky after taste?? I've gotten many pretty cupcake wrappers that actually give the cupcake a funny flavor. I LOVE the new cupcake liners by Reynolds with the foil liner - but they only come patterned and I need plain brown. Thanks for your help!!

I am confused since the paper is not eaten. I have not come across a cupcake liner that gave the cupcake a bad taste. These liners are food grade and should be safe, and is not suppose to change the flavor, since whatever the paper is made of, should not bland in with the cupcake. It might not be the paper that is the problem.

I hope you find what U are looking for.

I have had that happen. I bought some last fall (gold and red foil) from Michael's. They smelled horrible like glue. Against my better judgment I used them for some cupcakes and they had that paper smell/taste after they were baked. I tossed them. I don't make cupcakes that often so I am no help with the decorative wrappers. But I can definitely tell you that problem exists. No more made in China wrappers for me.

Sorry if I worded that wrong, but no, I don't eat the cupcake wrapper - it actually gives the cupcake a bad taste after you bake in them. And that's where I got mine also, at Michaels, even the Paula Deen brand ones gave the cupcake a "plastic" flavor. I just found some for a really good price online for the CK brand - has anyone used these?

I have ordered some dark brown ones from CK. I agree that the ones from Michael's smell horribly like chemicals. The ones from CK actually smell simply like paper. Much better.

Very strange! But yes the CK ones should be just fine.

I order mine from Charming Creations and so do a lot of CC members, you might want to measure your cupcake pan before you order.

@ Cupcations - can I ask which size you used on your blue cupcakes w/the turtle on top - I love that look - those wrappers look really nice with the cupcake and would look great for the wedding cupcakes I'm doing. Are they the standard tall?
Thanks so much!

With the turtle cupcakes I used the standard taller (TALLER SIZE STANDARD 2 x 1-3/4 BROWN LINERS) and believe them when they say "taller" they are quiet taller than the normal standard size. If you still have time for the wedding, order their sample package and check out all the sizes, but you have to email them for that I don't think they have it on the website.
