Hi everyone! I'm new to Cake Central and this is my first time posting.
I'm a brand new cupcake baker and I was wondering where is the best place to buy cupcake liners? Should I buy them online and in bulk, or should I stick to the ones I can find in the store? The Wilton cupcake liners at my local craft store usually run around $2-$2.50 for 75 liners, which I think is somewhat expensive, but I don't want to get the cheap grocery store kind with no color either.
Please give me some advice on my cupcake liners! Thanks
I buy them from Michael's or Joann's. I usually go with the plain colors so that they can match any theme. How expensive they are depends on the design. Michael's always has a discount coupon for 40-50% off so it is never expensive.
I buy the standard Reynold's foil liners. They even have no-fade wrappers but there are limited designs. I have used the craft store liners but I like the Reynold's ones the best.
I use the Reynolds white liners. You can get them at GFS in a box of 500 for around $4. If I need a colored or patterned one, I still bake in a white liner and pop it into the special one after baking. I find that these liners work best and don't separate from the cupcake like others do.
AMariaK38--are those Reynolds white liners grease proof? I started using the foil liners and I like them a lot in most cases. I did a trial batch of coconut cupcakes last night and liked them better in white.
AThe white ones are not but they work well. FYI if you buy the foil ones you can use the white insert as a liner a well. A lot of people think that is another liner but it's meant to separate the foil liners during production. I used to toss them but then I started using them whenever I needed backup liners or if I was making my own wrappers (and knew the liner wouldn't be seen).
I use white cupcake liners from Ace restaurant supply, 500 liners for $2.50!
