Where can I get cupcake liners that still look good when you bake chocolate cake in them. I live in Canada and bought grease free liners fom Golda's kitchen but they didn't look light blue after I baked red velvet and chocolate batter in them. Online would be fine tooThanksDina

Thanks everyone. I have been doing payment on delivery for regular cakes and have had no problems. But for wedding cakes I think full payment prior to wedding is a necessity. Dina
