AMine do the Same thing unless its a dark design or mental liners I think it's the oil from the recipe coming out alittle while baking I don't know how to stop it either and I'm not gonna change my recipe because I love the taste of the cupcakes that I found the recipe for so I figure I'll just deal with it. I have noticed it doesn't happen with the liners that I pay alittle.more for. Cupcakeproject.com has a awesome recipe for the uilltamate vanilla cupcake that even my daughter loves and she's very picky

Awww.fancyflours.com is one site that has been suggested to buy there liners from to help with this problem

kazita Posted 8 Dec 2012 , 12:23pm

AType in cupcake liners in the search bar at fancyflours

planetsomsom Posted 8 Dec 2012 , 7:44pm

I'm honestly beginning to suspect that they bake them unlined and then place the baked cupcakes in fresh liners later.

AI found that if I use cheap liners they are transparent after I cook them if I buy ones that are alittle thicker and cost alittle more than they turn out fine ..the ones on fancyflours seem to be the thicker better ones

kazita Posted 8 Dec 2012 , 8:39pm

AAlso noticed the darker the paper the better they turn out

kazita Posted 8 Dec 2012 , 8:52pm

AI went on fancyflours website and read some of the descriptions of the liners some of them say greese proof I truely believe that's what makes the liner transparent is the oil from the recipe ....so if you find liners on any website that say that they are greese proof then you can avoid the transparent problem

AThanks girls. I bought Wilton liners. Next time I want to use a thin liner I'm going to try baking The cup cake without a liner and once is baked Ill put it on

Marianna46 Posted 9 Dec 2012 , 10:18pm

I bought a pack of 500 white liners from GSA a while back (don't remember the brand, but they were very inexpensive). Not only does the grease leak through, but thye all "bloomed" so much the minute I opened the package that I couldn't get them into my cupcake tins without the edges overlapping on themselves, which makes your cupcakes look awful. So I plunked down some money for better ones and it helped all around.

dawnybird Posted 9 Dec 2012 , 11:19pm

Yeah, I had a customer bring me the liners she wanted to use; cute teal and hot pink ones with polka dots. They were so "splayed out" I couldn't get them in the pans without making several overlap creases! So aggravating! They were Wilton. After baking, they looked horrible. That's why I almost never agree to make cupcakes.
 

Marianna46 Posted 10 Dec 2012 , 10:24pm

I think mine were probably from Wilton, too. Oh, well. I found some really cute ones in several solid colors and in gold and silver metallic from my neighborhood cake supply shop and they've been a great success.

heathers_rose Posted 11 Dec 2012 , 12:24am

What has worked for me is baking the cupcakes in cheap white liners then transferring them to the colorful liners the customer wants. Hope this helps.

Marianna46 Posted 11 Dec 2012 , 4:55pm

How do you keep the second set of liners from falling off?

All4Show Posted 11 Dec 2012 , 9:01pm

Ok, I've been blasted a couple of times for suggesting these because they are a little pricey, but Hobby Lobby carries a brand of cupcake liners called "Cupcake Creations".  They are grease-proof.  I don't have to use two and I haven't had any problems with them separating from the cuppie or the design fading.  Let the cuppie cool in the pan for about 5 mins. then remove and cool completely.

Huh? Really? icon_confused.gif

kazita Posted 11 Dec 2012 , 10:21pm

AI have found that you have to pay alittle more to get greese proof liners and hobby lobby has 40% coupons every week in the local paper or you can have them sent to your email and you print it off that way you can go once a day if you need to just reprint the coupon off and micheals takes competers coupons. I have the micheals app right on my smart phone so I bring up the coupon on my phone and they just scan the bar code off my phone. You can also sign up at joanns fabrics for there flyer and email coupons

All4Show Posted 12 Dec 2012 , 3:14am

Yup, was really pretty rude & told me it was ridiculous to pay so much.

AZCouture Posted 12 Dec 2012 , 4:18am

Not surprised really.

ALol typo.. Foil liners hehe

javajammer Posted 13 Dec 2012 , 12:38am

Hobby Lobby just came out with a phone app:-)

bakinhoney1980 Posted 13 Dec 2012 , 2:20am

You can also get the "Cupcake Creations" liners at Marshalls.  Since it is a discount store, they are sporadic, but they are only about 3.00.

That's a good idea, heathers_rose, but the liners she had brought me were all splayed out wide, so not sure that would have looked good either.

Reynolds makes cupcake liners now and they are wonderful.  I find them in the paper plate section of the grocery store at Wal-Mart.  You get 36 liners for $2.30.  They are the StayBrite baking cups.  http://www.reynoldskitchens.com/product.asp?prod_id=1794  I use these all the time.  They come in lots of fun designs and they never lose their color and the designs don't fade away.

There are so many different qualities of cupcake liners out there. The key is to get "grease-proof" liners. They generally do cost a little bit more but not by much since we're talking about paper here. It's definitely worth it. The packaging will generally say grease-proof. This is especially important for patterned liners. Separation of the liners from the cupcake is generally caused by too much moisture soaking into the liner. I did a little informational post on my blog about cupcake liners here http://www.sharedessertcompany.com/2012/01/cupcake-liners.html .Check it out and see if it helps! Good Luck!  ~Sara
