I am making chocolate cupcakes and the colors of the baking cups are red and blue. Someone suggested baking them in a white cup and then placing them in the colored ones. Would that look ok or would the gap between the baking cups be really noticeable?
the red and blue will disappear if you bake them in those right -- so it's your choice -- it's not super noticeable -- it's prettier i think
i mean the extra cupcake liner is not super noticeable
The second cup makes it look a little ruffly but lots of bakers do that. The alternative would be to double up the colored liners.
and you can reinforce the fold around the bottom too so it holds better -- like refold it at 12/3/6/9 o'clock -- or give it a extra fold right above where it's already folded -- i don't know if i explained that very well -- i typed it out once before but deleted it -- so...there it is anyhow
and if you try the folding thing -- fold a whole stack at a time -- not one by one
I'm going to make two cupcakes one in just a red or blue liner and then one in white and see what it looks like to put it in another liner to see which I like best. I know they sell red and blue foil baking cups but I did to want the shiny look. These "test" ones can be our taste samples so it all works out :) thanks again I will certainly try the tips!!
The cups didn't fade and the blue and red are still visible even with the chocolate cake!!! I'm actually very surprised I didn't have any issues :)
Well good -- shows yah how much I know -- hahaha
I've had them fade before so trust me you know a thing or two :) I think I just was fortunate these didn't and in case anyone is curious they were Wilton brand the package has red, blue, and yellow. And even the yellow didn't disappear. I usually don't use a whole lot of Wilton products but had these on hand and couldn't find the shade of blue and red I was looking for other than these so I gave these a shot and they worked!!!
That is good to know about the Wilton papers. I like how a cupcake looks when it is in a double paper but if I am in a hurry or run out it is good to have a backup plan. :)
