I've got a problem - I bought 100 of the cupcake boxes with inserts to hold them down from My cupcakes are sliding around underneath the insert and getting ruined. If any of you use these boxes, what kind of cupcake liner and pans do you use?
I already spoke with a guy from the company and he was like "yeah, some people have the problem - try filling the cupcakes with more batter." So I tested that out and it didn't really solve the problem. The only cupcakes that work ok are the ones with sort of "lip" over the liner. If they come out tall and puffy, they are still wiggly inside the insert. He said they are supposed fit snugly.
Grrr... I don't know what to do with these boxes now. Anyone have experiences with this?

I've never tried these boxes, but when you called will he let you return them or exchange them? especially since other people have had complaints. sorry i can't be of any help.

tuffstuff, try putting a rubber shelf liner in before you put the cupcakes in the box. They won't slide at all. I also use one under the box in my car when transporting cakes. I never have a problem with them sliding around.

TTran!!! Great idea! I will try that! I don't know why I didn't think of that before - I use that liner stuff for transporting cakes but didn't think of using it under the actual cupcakes inside the box.
And ZAKIA6, thanks for that link! Once I get through the rest of these boxes (in 6 years? icon_razz.gif ) , I would much prefer that style of container!
