I am a cupcake vendor at an annual event. Each year I do 1,000+ cupcakes. I bake and keep them in liners then I put them into clear squat cups with lids. This year I want to eliminate the baking liners and make my products more convenient for the customer and less expensive for me by using 4 or 5 oz "double poly" cups with dome lids, like seen at this link...

Can cupcakes be baked at a low temperature maybe 300 or 325 in these cups? I will be making labels for each flavor.

Couldn't get the link to work, but I would be wary of using a product for something that is not intended. (Such as using large garbage bags to cover food products. These bags often are treated with chemicals - insecticide and perfumes - and are not intended for use with food.) I suggest you contact Customer Service at the manufacturer and ask them.

I would be worried about if the cup would hold up in the heat. Why don't you bake them like muffins and just spray the inside of the cupcake pan with non-stick and bake them without a liner and slide them in a cup. I would worry about them drying out.

Are they required to have a lid for the event?

Do not bake in plastics that are not specifically designed for that. Polyethylene or PE melts at about 250°.

Check this out. Pg 9 has cupcake size baking cups with lids. It's a wholesale place so you may need to call them and find a local supplier or set up an account

Souffle cups may be an idea.

Do not buy coated cups. Nut cups are similar but they are usually coated.
I don't know if they have lids.
They can be difficult to eat from ..
