AWhich do you prefer? Do you think the foil cases keep cupcakes fresher??

I prefer foil for a couple of reasons:   They don't look greasy on the outside and they seem to stick better to the sides of the cupcakes.  The paper ones seem to peel off mine when they're just sitting there.

AI also prefer foil. They don't fade, they are sturdier, and I think they do keep the cupcakes fresher. The only drawback is the price.

AI prefer paper, and always use chocolate brown ones for every flavor cupcake I do. For some reason they look very appetizing in that color to me, and I prefer the simplicity of them looks-wise vs the ones with designs or colors that fade or can be a little transparent. The deep brown color is totally opaque and looks good with any color topping. I only use good liners I get in bulk from cake supply companies. The kinds you can buy elsewhere never hold up as well IMO (I never have a problem with them coming away from the cake, or looking greasy). Also I think foil ones look less professional/special since most average folks use them for bake sales etc. and every time I do use them, they don't peel away from the cake evenly and tend to stick more and tear when you try to open them up.

I never thought about doing brown....that contrast would look GREAT with white, or any color, icing!

 

Can you divulge the brand?  Or PM me....are they the waxier paper.  I guess when I think of paper, I picture the ones you get at GFS, etc....not pretty!

 

Thanks for sharing!
