AHi everyone! I'm a new poster, long time reader here. I'm just a hobbyist of about 7 years, and I mostly bake cupcakes.

I would like to upgrade some of my equipment, (even down to my ice cream scoop!), and I'd love to know...

What are you favorite tools for baking cupcakes? I'm talking specific brands here... Pans? Coloring? Scoops?

Thanks in advance! :)

Magic Line makes the best pans, in my opinion!

Ateco makes the best cutters and pastry bags.

AIf my assumptions are correct, they are the amazing strips that you put around your pans while baking your cake. They help the batter to rise evenly in the pans. I use the Wilton brand of bake even strips. I purchased them from Michaels (50% off coupon, of course), but I've seen them in many cake decorating supply stores.

AThank you so much, everyone! I can't wait to try those! :)

I bake a lot of cupcakes, and I've been looking for a more cost effective option for the plastic containers/boxes that I use for transport than the $2.59 ones at the party store. We don't have any supply stores here, so I was hoping someone could recommend a reputable online source for baking supplies. Any recommendations?

I like that! (Added it to my Amazon wishlist, lol) But I'm wondering more about disposable ones I can just leave with the recipients. Like this... [IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3316553/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

The all seem to be around the $3/piece range. :(
