Square Cupcakes?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hi Cupcakers,
I have a bride who wants square cupcake and I said "Sure, I can do that"
Is there such a thing as square cupcake papers? I have been told there is a pan available in squares (not mini muffins).
Any info. you can pass on to me would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Lori V.

I just saw square cupcake liners at Michaels craft store in the baking section. IF you don't have one near you, you may be able to get the liners on line.

I dont see any reason why you would need to buy a square pan when I make square cupcakes I just bake a sheet cake and cut it into squares I also believe there are round liners at michael's.

If you just cut out square cakes, how do you attach the cupcake papers?
I dont want to make fondant covered cakes. They are having a dessert buffet and want the papers on them?


Also, does anyone else have issues with the cupcake papers pealing off from the cupcake as they cool?

Wilton's has some new square cupcake silicones. If you just add a liner in there, I am told it takes the shape of the silicone icon_smile.gif

Put "square" in the search engine on that page and it will show you the square cupcakes.

man I just used these with the round cupcake papers and what drama I had. Don't recomend using the new wilton shaped silicone cupcake until they come out with the papers to match!

I have square muffin pans, but for the life of me, I can't remember where I got them! As far as papers, I have never seen square ones. Perhaps you could google either the pan or the papers and see what you get. If you at least had the pan, you could probably shape the round liner to fit the pan. Sorry, that probably wasn't much help!

You can use round papers in a square pan. The pan is more important.

I have ordered chocolate transfer sheets from them and they are a good company. I hope the link worked.

I have seen those liners on Beryl's but unfortunately they are only 3/4" tall. I'm looking for something more cupcake like.
Thanks,
Lori V.

Hope that you can find the right stuff to make them. icon_smile.gif



Chef, those pictures on flickr are Petit Fours, which are not cupcakes...I'm sure as a CHEF you've made dozens of them.

it's not the pans nor the silicone baking cups that I'm talking about...it's the cupcake papers themselves.

The round cupcake papers sit inside the shaped cupcake makers awkwardly..I even tried the aluminum cups that divide the papers. I mean it's doable...but they just don't look good, at least to me.

The sides of the shaped cupcakes flare up and then dip down at every corner, it's hard to know when to stop filling them and they are also hard to "dip" into the icing.

I was trying to make a "glaze" to dip them into as I've seen them, so pretty, in some book or other...(have to be at work to look at which one it is..)
