Tulip Cupcake/Muffin Liners/Papers

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi There--

I'm really interested in trying out these cupcake liners posted on the Baking Bites blog. I don't want to order any in case I don't like them. Does anyone know how to make them?

Thanks!

It looks to me like you could just cut two squares of parchment (or even brown craft paper or fancy scrapbook paper, etc.) then lay one on top of the other so that you'd have four "corners" Just put a dab of hot glue to secure the sides...it's worth a try, hope something works out for you icon_smile.gif .

I have dark brown ones.

I don't use them myself, but sell them in the store and they are very popular. They are made of a kind of 'parchment-y' paper and you need to put them in a muffin pan. They are quite tall, so they demand extra batter so that the muffin doesn't look small and feeble.

Also, if you want to make them yourself you would only need one square of paper, NOT two... two would give you eight corners, not four, as the previous poster mentioned.

I just made one from a square piece of scrap paper while sitting here reading. I just stapled it together to see if it would look like the picture shown. It looks pretty close. Now I'd like to know what is holding those in the picture together?

When they are mass-produced like that there are special glues that hold them together, obviously... most likely stuff that is manufactured for the occasion.

I know you said you wanted to make them first before buying them but I just ran across them a few moments ago while placing an order. Just in case you like them, they sell them here for $3/25 pieces. I've never priced them before, but that doesn't sound too bad for a speciality cup.
Scroll down the page about 3/4 of the way--hope this helps.

I bought mine from Kitchen Krafts. I used them for the first time yesterday making muffins for my MOPS group today. There is no glue on mine. just folded. The problem w/ the white ones are they looked ugly after I took them out of the oven. but the brown ones looked great!

Thanks so much for your tip about the white ones! I've been going back and forth about ordering these for awhile, I finally decided to go ahead and I'm glad I saw your input, I changed my order to all brown, thanks!

I made my own last weekend. I was using my king sized muffin pan (the one that makes really tall cupcakes as opposed to the one that makes really wide cupcakes) so I used a 10" x 10" piece of parchment paper. I just pushed the square down in to the pan folding the paper as I pushed down to get the look I wanted. I was concerned about the parchment paper browning in the oven but it worked out fine (as long as I didn't get any drips)!

When the cakes were finished I tied a ribbon around the whole thing to keep the ends from unfolding. You can see a picture here ...

Hi all, I don't know who pointed us to a martha stewart show where i saw how to make the tulip cases. I tried this out and they came out great.


Everyone was bowled over - being me and i. They really looked great but they do need about half a cup of bayyer to look right. I use smaller squares now so i can use 1/4 cup of batter.
You're awesome on this forum. Great recipes, tutorials and just about so much. Thanks a zillion.
