Cupcake liners versus Candy cups

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im baking goodies for my sister-in-law's gender reveal party for their first baby. I know to get grease proof papers. BUT I can't decide between typical/standard liners or the candy cups.

I like the idea that with the candy cups you don't need to use a cupcake pan. But are they challenging to remove from the cupcake? Lastly, for anyone who chimes in tell me what you think.

Two single tiers side by side. One with a pink football helmet, one with blue to match the theme of Team Pink or Blue.
Then pink/blue cupcakes circling the corresponding tiers. Place a matching gum paste football helmet on top.

Thanks all!

i like the cake/cupcake/helmet/pink/blue placement & all--but is this boy/girl twins???

 

that's not a reveal that's confusing!!! ;)

 

but as for candy cups versus cupcake liners

 

disclaimer--i've never baked in candy cups but

 

i have thought about this a good bit  and i get A's in  thinking  icon_biggrin.gif

 

so i have thought about giving the candy cup rim two little cuts

 

to give the person a little place to start popping it out

 

random untested thought for you

 

test it maybe see whachu think but basically like you already know

 

  • i'd use candy cups because it would be easier to decorate the straight up & down sides

 

  • i'd use adorable cupcake liners because it's easier and there are ten thousand really cute ones

 

what a sweet party!!

 

there's this type too in case you didn't have enough choices birthday.gif

They will be revealing their *one* baby's gender. icon_smile.gif I'm making a 6" single tier decorated pink and will display it next to a 6" single tier decorated blue.

Then they will simply cut into the pink if it's a girl. Hope that makes sense! I'm making both cuz I will find out along with all the other guests,...I won't know in advance.

Then the cupcakes are for fun. Thanks for your input!
