Hi All,

 

I've searched this site for an answer to my problem but didn't find anything.  Anyway, I am having a problem with the liners sticking to my cupcakes too well that it's very hard to pull them away from the cupcake when you want to eat them.  Also, while trying hard to pull it away from the cupcake the cupcake starts to adhere to the liner and it breaks up.  

 

Anyone else have this problem?

 

 

Chris

I have the opposite prob.  But I think mine is due to the heinous high humidity where I live.  I'll be curious to see the answers you get.

I have sprayed mine with pam before and that seemed to help, they were foil ones tho...:)

Two possible reasons why your product sticks to the paper: Recipe is low in fat; or the paper is not formulated to work properly.

AI agree with MimiFix.....if you buy cheap ones from the dollar store, you get garbage. I like Wilton's or Duff's. :grin: Hope this helps.

They are supposed to stick. Otherwise, just oil the pans and don't use liners.

Yes, of course, the liners should stick a little. That's what helps the product retain moisture. But sometimes the paper sticks too much. In attempting to peel off the liner, paper remains on the product or the product tears into pieces. As far as I can tell, that's the OP's issue. Not using liners is always an option; but this choice affects clean-up and moisture retention.

i had that same problem this past summer i had gotten this tube of wilton standard liners from bed bath and beyond i used this chocolate base that i have been using for a while to make my cupcakes liners stuck to them and the cupcakes did not rise properly, i had 36 cupcakes that looked and tasted like crap,

 

 

i slept on it the next morning i went and re did the cupcakes with different liners using the same cake recipe and they rose and came out way better

Good for you! In years past, Wilton built a solid reputation for quality products. Now they don't seem to care as much.
