Hi guys!
How do you avoid your cup cake liners from
Looking greasy and loosing the color or the design
Of the cup cake liner. I have tried not sparing the
Cup cake liner and it didn't work :/

Mine do the Same thing unless its a dark design or mental liners I think it's the oil from the recipe coming out alittle while baking I don't know how to stop it either and I'm not gonna change my recipe because I love the taste of the cupcakes that I found the recipe for so I figure I'll just deal with it. I have noticed it doesn't happen with the liners that I pay alittle.more for. Cupcakeproject.com has a awesome recipe for the uilltamate vanilla cupcake that even my daughter loves and she's very picky

I'm honestly beginning to suspect that they bake them unlined and then place the baked cupcakes in fresh liners later.

I found that if I use cheap liners they are transparent after I cook them if I buy ones that are alittle thicker and cost alittle more than they turn out fine ..the ones on fancyflours seem to be the thicker better ones

Also noticed the darker the paper the better they turn out

I went on fancyflours website and read some of the descriptions of the liners some of them say greese proof I truely believe that's what makes the liner transparent is the oil from the recipe ....so if you find liners on any website that say that they are greese proof then you can avoid the transparent problem

I bought a pack of 500 white liners from GSA a while back (don't remember the brand, but they were very inexpensive). Not only does the grease leak through, but thye all "bloomed" so much the minute I opened the package that I couldn't get them into my cupcake tins without the edges overlapping on themselves, which makes your cupcakes look awful. So I plunked down some money for better ones and it helped all around.

Yeah, I had a customer bring me the liners she wanted to use; cute teal and hot pink ones with polka dots. They were so "splayed out" I couldn't get them in the pans without making several overlap creases! So aggravating! They were Wilton. After baking, they looked horrible. That's why I almost never agree to make cupcakes.

I think mine were probably from Wilton, too. Oh, well. I found some really cute ones in several solid colors and in gold and silver metallic from my neighborhood cake supply shop and they've been a great success.

What has worked for me is baking the cupcakes in cheap white liners then transferring them to the colorful liners the customer wants. Hope this helps.

How do you keep the second set of liners from falling off?

Ok, I've been blasted a couple of times for suggesting these because they are a little pricey, but Hobby Lobby carries a brand of cupcake liners called "Cupcake Creations".  They are grease-proof.  I don't have to use two and I haven't had any problems with them separating from the cuppie or the design fading.  Let the cuppie cool in the pan for about 5 mins. then remove and cool completely.
