Topic: Silicone Baking Cups - do you use them? How do they work..?
MissyLayton0608 09/28/2011 10:40 PM
I've never used silicone baking cups before but was just given a bunch as a gift and I'm curious about them. Most of the time when I bake it is for a customer (for a party, holiday, whatever), and I guess this is kind of a dumb question, but - what do you do with the silicone cups when you use them? Do you have to take the cupcake out of the silicone cup and give it to the customer without a wrapper? Or, are you just supposed to use silicone cups like normal baking cups and unfold them from the cupcake as you eat them? (In which case I guess I can't use them for customer orders, right?) Sorry this is kind of a silly question, I'm just a little clueless. Thanks!

I have used the silicone baking cups I sprayed them with nonstick spray and they came out great no sticking at all. If you leave them in the silicone cups you most likely want get them back. I put my cupcakes on a tray without the cups.

Do customers mind getting cupcakes without baking cups, though? It seems like that would be messy.. Or do you just use them when you are baking for yourself (or family/friends)?

I have never used them. You could try putting cupcake liners in them, but what would be the point of using silicone then. I bought some mini heart cake silicone pans, haven't used them yet.

I am interested in these as well. I know a lit of the times baking in a pretty designed baking cup, the liner absorbs the grease from baking and you can't see the design anymore (I know you can buy the grease-proof ones but when I have a coupon for Michalels/AC Moore and don't want to pay shipping I like to get the ones they offer). Can you bake the cupcake in the silicone mold and after poppong it out, just place it then in the pretty, designed paper wrapper?

I don't know if anyone is still reading these, but you may have discovered by now that the cake turns out a little bit firmer when you use these cups. You should be able to pop a cupcake out of the silicone cup and then you can place it into a decorative paper cupcake cup if you want. It will look nice because it'll be clean with no batter blobs on the edges.

Good information, MisskackyW. Welcome to the forum. I bought a set of cupcake ones that I use when melting isomalt.
