Can anyone help me?
I made 50 cupcakes in sillicone molds that are really pretty but only realized after that I should have made them in paper cup cake holders. I bought the holders but there is space between the paper and cake. I feel like such an idiot, I was not concentrating. Anyway, does any one know if there is a way to make them look better? should I pipe some bc around the sides to 'fill' it in?
there is no way I can make more as I have neither the time nor the room in my freezer.
Any help would be much appreciated as I am (quietly) worrying myself sick over it!

Wow I can't believe you got them out of the silicon linersicon_smile.gif
If it were me I would do one of the following.

I would take the small star or tip that has all the little jagged edges and do swirls around the edge of the paper and press it into the cupcake and frosting to kind of glue the liners to the cupcake. If you don't have time for swirls, then I would take a larger open round tip and pipe a snake while pressing the liner into the cupcake again to glue it shut. Then I would roll the edge in sugar to hide the line.

Can you post a pic? They may not look as bad as you think.
