How do I stop cupcakes from sticking to their liners?

I am a beginner when it comes to cake baking and decorating. Last night I attempted to make Key Lime cupcakes. Although the cupcakes came out fine, I couldn't help but notice that they were sticking to the cupcake liners.. how can I prevent this from happening?

::Confused:: Cupcakes should stick to the liners, at least somewhat. What you don't want is the liners peeling off prior to service.

I think I know what you're talking about. Did the cupcake tear apart when you tried to remove the liner? My advice would be to use a higher quality liner. Reynolds or anything labeled greaseproof.

Yes Diane, it's almost as if the cupcake would fall apart since the liner wouldnt break free from the cake easily.. I will have to try new liners.. Thanks!

I think OP meant that they turned out fine.

honeymunk and pinklotus~~Welcome to the forum!

The best cupcake liners are labeled GREASE-RESISTANT or GREASEPROOF. Wilton and other decorative paper liners are cheap to manufacture, and end up looking cheap because the colorful designs end up getting muddied by the grease in the batter. Paper liners also present a whole host of other problems.

If you live on the West Coast and have a Smart & Final nearby, you can purchase 500 of these liners (photo below) for about $6. These are fabulous and will never let you down. Reynolds foil liners and other GREASE-RESISTANT/PROOF liners are also excellent, but they will be more expensive.

Try better quality liners and you will probably notice that less cake sticks to the liner.

One more thing to consider since Apti covered the big one. Possibly your recipe makes a great light cake, but maybe the structure isn't strong enough to handle the pulling of the liner when you remove it. If the quality liners don't work, this may be your issue and you will need a more sturdy recipe.
