Argh, I've just done a batch of gluten free choc cupcakes and all of them came away from the wrappers. Why does this happen. When I do my usual recipe, a few come away, without fail, but this was every single one.

Could it be any of these reasons:

Not cooking long enough... I cooked for 25 mins at 140 degrees (fan assisted)
Taking out of the pan before they cooled... am I meant to leave them in the muffin tin until compeltely cool?
Rubbish wrappers (they were just standard supermarket white wrappers)

Any other ideas?

These were just test ones so not needing to re-do them but it's frustrating anyway.

Many thanks icon_smile.gif

I know what you are saying. I have been having the same problem. I thought it might have been because the wrappers are now trying to be greaseproof and as a result the cupcakes aren't sticking to the paper but if these are just plain paper cupcake liners I don't know. Let me know if you find out anything.

I've had the same issues, and they were corrected by always using Reynolds white liners. For some reason, I get very few that pull away now. You can get them at the grocery or at GFS in a package of 500.
If I want some color, I'll pop the cupcake, white liner and all, in another color liner when I'm setting up.
Good luck to you!

do they pull away as soon as they've cooled or after you have stored them? how are you storing them?
