You can get a couple dozen for under $10, and probably less than $5 now that they're all on clearance. Caveat: I ran out of time and didn't get around to making the cupcakes, so this theory is untested. Still, seemed like a good idea.

This is the tutorial I used the first time I made them.  The pan is really cheap and I suspect less time consuming than hand molding.   http://www.globalsugarart.com/tutorial.php?sheetid=138

I read somewhere that using bleached instead of unbleached flour helps.
