Hi. I just love the look of the nut cups for cupcake liners...but some say not for baking... Do you still use those? They seem the come Wilton. Martha Stewart ones? Love the look but not sure where to get them. Thanks

I love that look too and I used it to make "Italian Ices" for the 4th of July


I did not bake in the cups - you can do it two ways - bake in a regular paper cupcake cup or just spray your pans with no liner.  A word of advice if you go either route - put a spot of icing on the bottom of the cupcake (or paper) so it sticks to the nut cup so it doesn't fall out on top of the cupcake-eater!  (You will not get rave reviews for that!)


I got the nutcups in Party City but then I also saw them in Michaels.


Good luck.

i would not recommend baking in the nut cups because it's so difficult to get the cupcake out. it just doesn't rip away.

You need to buy souffle cups, that are not smooth and shiny. Those nut cups aren't for baking. Souffle cups are. I buy them in all sizes from the nut cup size, all the way up to cupcake size at a local wholesale restaurant supply. Sold in big packs of 100+.

You can bake in them if they are not the kind with the wax coating on the inside. (This is according to Bakerella, anyway). But ellavanilla is right, they don't come off that nicely. I used them once but it was because I was making the cupcakes look like snow cones (a Bakerella recipe) so it didn't matter if they came off, since I served them with little spoons.

You can bake in nut cups, as long as the waxy coating is covered by cupcake, otherwise it smokes and burns.,, and as far as I know, smoked cupcakes aren't too popular :) They are pretty much impossible to get off though, unless you cut little slits into them post baking.


Souffle cups are way easier, no wax coating, and easier to take off. I order mine off Amazon, or at a local restaurant supply.
