Eight Reasons to Use Paper Cupcake Liners

The colorful papers that go around the cupcake are a great way to decorate your dessert for special occasions, such as birthday, wedding, baby shower, thanksgiving, gatherings, tea party and more. These decorative wrappers are available in a wide variety of designs and colors and they can be holiday themed to correspond with your special occasion or any holiday event.

 

Benefits

  1. Decorative cupcake papers eliminate need for using food dyes to create colorful cupcakes for your kid’s birthday party. Synthetic food dyes can cause allergic reactions, especially with children. On the other side, natural food dyes that are usually plant based are not as bright as synthetic food dyes. They can affect the taste of your cupcakes if you use them in large quantities, trying to achieve more intense coloring.
  2. Cupcake liners add more shinning points to your party. They help you to impress your guests by achieving the perfect presentation on the table for the special day. Using cupcake liners helps bakers create eye-catching products that attract more customers and make their desserts stand out from the rest.
  3. Cupcake wrappers help preserve the moist texture of your cupcakes, by preventing them from becoming dried out after removing from the cookie sheet. The cupcake liners from grease proof paper have a very low porosity, so they will keep the cupcakes moist until it’s going to be eaten.
  4. Cupcake liners create a beautiful cupcake display, transforming any cake or muffin from ordinary into something much prettier and more elegant. You will get compliments on not only for the taste, but as a great cake decorator.
  5. Cupcake papers will hold the shape of your cupcakes and muffins, while offering a hygienic and easy way to handle your dessert. Cupcake wrappers also make cupcakes more portable as they are easy to pick up and eat. Select cupcakes from grease-proof baking paper which are resistant to moisture to eliminate leakage and prevent oil from penetrating the paper, making the outside greasy and messy. This helps keep outside of the cupcake liners clean as well as your guest’s hands.
  6. Bright-colored cupcake wrappers will put a smile on children’s faces as kids love colorful decorations.
  7. They prevent cupcakes from burning or sticking and make it easier to remove them from the cookie sheet. They eliminate the need for greasing and flouring which will help reduce your calorie intake.

How to Choose Quality Cupcake Papers

Make sure to select high quality liners made from a material that is safe for food contact. This will ensure that there is no chemical migration from the paper wrappers into food.

Food should never be baked or served in something that smells bad. The cupcake liners that emit strong chemical odor are not safe for baking. The bad smell may spoil the taste and aroma of your cupcakes, making you feel uncomfortable while serving your desert.

Read customer reviews before purchasing. Buyers will often leave bed reviews after purchasing cupcakes that have a terrible chemical smell.

Read instructions carefully. Most cupcake liners can be baked at up to 400°. The color of high quality cupcake wrappers will not fade after baking. Some types of cupcake wrappers are not supposed to be used in the oven, but you can use them to dress up your cupcakes.

Allow the cupcakes to cool and then put them in the fridge for an hour.  This will ensure that the paper releases easily from your cupcake.

 

Cupcake Paper vs Silicone Cupcake Liners

Reusable silicone cupcake liners can save you money, because you are not buying and throwing away them all the time. You also don’t have to worry that you will run out of cupcake liners. It is a good idea to have them handy when you realize that you are out of paper liners.

Silicone cupcake liners are not suitable for bakeries. Another con is that cleaning may take too much work after big gatherings. Some cheaper brands are not made of pure silicone.

It would be a good idea to have both, because the silicone cupcake holders are more suitable for everyday use, while paper cupcake wrappers are more convenient for special events.
