How to make heart shaped cupcakes?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Help anyone. I have an order for heart shaped cupcakes. Does anyone know the best way to do this? I've seen heart shaped pans both metal & silicone but is there such a thing as a heart shaped paper liner? From what I've seen I can definitely use the silicone liners to bake but what on earth do you serve them in? Not the silicone I'm sure. Thansk for any help.

How about this - bake a sheet cake, cut out heart shapes with a cookie cutter, and wrap them in these:

One way I came across doing this on the net was to fill your regular cupcake liners as normal and then roll up some foil about the size of a marble and place it between the cupcake liner and the pan and then it should bake heart shaped, liner and all!

try the regular round paper liners- they usually conform well to most shaped pans you put them in

Yup! I have a cupcake magz at the shop and this is exactly how they show making heart shaped cupcakes.

Wow!!! thanks for that trick. It took me a minute to get my mind around how to get this one to work but after my brain fart, I can see it working. I can't wait to try it, as I need to try to keep costs as low as possible these days. I can not afford new heart shaped pans for just one order. I'll let you guys know how they come out. Oh by the way, what cupcake magazines are available ? thanks again.

Reynolds, the foil brand, do heart shaped foil cups. I have used them both for baking and for doing jello.

I use the foil ball also. Here is a link to give you a picture of what it looks like.

You guys beat me to my response - one tip to add though... I used real marbles. I read this in a magazine when my kids were small (all adults now) and it worked great.

Williams-Sonoma now has a cupcake pan that only makes heart-shaped tops. The bottoms are round.

Check it.

BRILLIANT!!! What a SUPER GREAT IDEA!!
I would go so far a to also ADD two fine elipse shaped foil pieces and place at the side to help tapper it more to a point!

Im GUNNA try this THIS week! I think this is a brilliant idea! I did an accidental cupcake in heart shape but that was using pattypans on a tray & was a total fluke ..but I did decorate it in a heart designing style!!

I HAVE to try this out - THANKS guys for the GREAT TIP!
