waxed vs. greaseproof

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
what's the difference between waxed cupcake liner and greaseproof cupcake liners?

I'm looking for a liner that will not become oily/somewhat translucent after baking. I also want to be able to still see the designs on it. For example: on valentines day I baked red velvet cupcakes in a cupcake line that was decorated with hearts and pink/red stripes, but after it was cooked, you could barely see the pattern on the liner.

You will need a high quality greaseproof liner. They are hard to find in those decorative papers. And just because they call them greaseproof, does not mean they are good quality.

I can't help you on the print liners because I haven't found one that is good. If you are a home baker, Reynold's has the high quality ones, but the selection is limited.

I wanted prints for my bakery but could not find any suitable. I now only use brown parchment tulip liners.

From my experience, depending on the color of the cake, the design is very difficult to see. Sometimes i double line, white for baking and design on the outside. You can bake it together or add the designer cupcake on the outside afterwards. I know its a total waste of money to double up but I buy the huge wholesale package of white baking cups from my local bakery wholesaler.

I'm with MsMonica... It just seems impossible to keep the wrappers in top condition after they've gone through the oven. Putting on a fresh wrapper after baking looks very good! No drips, no discolouration, no misshaping, they just look clean and fresh!

I guess if you don't want to double up, you could always bake without the liners. They'll rise higher and faster and require a bit more panning prep but you'd get fresh wrappers without buying extras.

The ones I buy look the same before and after baking. I just used both the greaseproof and the Reynold's tonight on RV cake. I sold the greaseproof ones and the extra batter went in the Reynold's black and white damask for my family.

I can see this is an old thread, but I was thinking about the same thing.

I am totally satisfied with culpitt baking cases, the colours and designs remain 100% the same after baking, but there are not many interesting designs available. Culpitt brand comesĀ from northern England, btw.

I buy the Culpitt foil liners and they are wonderful. I have to order them from the UK (no good quality baking supplies in my country!) but they are worth it. Perfect size and they don't discolor or show any grease. I think it just looks really professional.
