Every time I make cupcakes the papers always cave in in some spots. I use the wilton cupcake pans and cupcake liners and the liners seem too big. When I scoop the cake batter in, the liners buckle. Is there a way to avoid this??

Thank you icon_smile.gif

There was a long thread and discussion about this a few weeks back. Had a lot of suggestions and brands that don't do this. Might want to see if you can find it, very helpful.

Is there a secret way to find an answer to a specific question in this forum?. Every time I type in a "specific" search it sends me to a million answers and more times than none the answers do not even pertain to the search, lol!

The secret way is: searching with Google. Try 'cupcake liners cakecentral'. icon_smile.gif I've never had any luck searching in this forum.

From my experience, and I have a zillion liners, the only way to avoid liners caving in is to buy the right size. I did this by:

Measuring across the inside bottom diameter of each of my pans, and then measuring up one side. For instance, my cheapy WM cupcake pan measures 2-1/8" across the bottom and 1-18" high, so I know I need the liners that are no larger than 2" in diameter, I can play with heights, as long as the bottom sizes stay the same.

And just to warn everyone, DO NOT RELY on a websites dimensions for your liner choice. I have called companies and actually had them measure the bottom diameter before purchasing from them. As a customer I feel that if they want my business, and future orders, they will cater to my needs.

Also, the Texas sized cupcake liners from papermart are crap. They stick to all of my cupcakes and muffins, and soak up so much oil, they go from white to clear. I am very disappointed in them. I am still looking for a good one.

Just my 2 cents.
