That's an interesting idea, Jules, but the only problem with a paper towel roll is you can't see what's inside. I like to see what choices I have without taking them all out.

I searched for this subject and couldn't seem to find it, so thought I'd check here to see if anyone can share what they store their mini cupcake/muffin wrappers/liners in.

Hi. I'm not a pro baker, but I've used lemon curd filling in my cupcakes before and didn't refrigerate them after being filled. No one has gotten sick, and they still tasted fine. Since you're just talking about overnight, I don't think it's going to hurt anything. I'm sure if I'm wrong, someone will let us know, but as I said I've done it before without problems.
When I took my first Wilton class - Decorating Basics - my instructor made a batch of buttercream right there in the class and showed us how to make it thinner and thicker to meet whatever consistency we needed for what we were doing. It was really nice to be able to see it and have a better idea of what we were supposed to be striving for in consistency. The other thing she did -- because several of us had never used fondant before -- was bring in small samples of...

Welcome! There are a lot of really talented people on this site who are willing to help by sharing information, recipes and techniques. You'll learn a lot from these people. I've only been decorating cakes for a year now and am a hobby baker who still has a lot to learn, and the sharing on this site is really worth it's weight in gold! Hope to see you here often.
I, too, love the new size of the pics. It was SOOOO hard to see them before. I know my eyes are bad, but those were pretty small. Hope the keep it this size!!
So what are some of the good reasons to invest in this book? I'm a cookbook/recipe fanatic and am curious.....
