This lady uses them a lot. I remember her saying they were harder to eat using them vs. using regular cupcake liners, but she liked the look.

Good luck.

There were some posts about this recently - Melvira had some luck with them, if I remember correctly...

I used them once and while they look nice, people had to eat their cupcakes out of them with spoons and I think my cupcakes were much drier than usual. So I was disappointed.

I love them and have been using them a lot lately. It is really easy to get the cake out. Just grab the top rim in two spots about 1/4 inch apart and pull. This will cause the overlapping section of the nut cup to separate. Do that in a couple more spots and the cup widens enough that you can just lift the cupcake out.

I have yet to use them but over in the cupcake topic Melvira states that she sprays with something like the Crisco with Flour spray. May want to pm her and ask! icon_smile.gif

What if you bake them in a regular cupcake liner, then just slide them into the nut cups afterwards?

Yes, spray them with the flour spray. I use Pam for Baking.

I just put a tiny little snip on the top in one or two places before I bake. Then you just pull the cup apart!

I use cooking spray, and tear them a little, and they come out very easily, and haven't had one break apart. I have only used the smaller 2 oz ones. Melvira uses the 4oz ones.

I love the nut cups, so easy to bake with and they look nice. They are really helpful when making a large volume of cuppys since you can line a ton of them up on a cookie sheet.

I do not spray mine with anything and have no problems with sticking. You don't have to snip them either, at least with the ones I use (huge sleeve from Smart and Final) you just sit it down and grasp with 2 hands near one of the folds and pull repeat around the cup until your treat is released! I've taught all of my friends and family and they are all pros now thumbs_up.gif

I have a tutorial on baking with (how much to fill) and serving nutcups from one of my fav blogs send me your email and I'll send it to you, it's what taught me how to use them. G/L Andrea

Hey, thanks for the replys. I bought mine from GFS and they were kinda hard to get out.

The ring around the top was hard to break so I just snipped around the edge in four places. They just tore right out.

They didn't try to stick, but I will remember to spray them. Thanks alot, Katie
