One of my pet peeves when making cupcakes is when I buy pretty cupcake wrappers and then you cannot even see the pattern once the cupcakes are baked because they are soaked through. Totally unattractive. Especially for chocolate cupcakes. For a long time I have been using Reynolds plain silver regular sized cupcake wrappers because silver is a nice neutral color and they don’t soak through. Also, I can buy them at almost any grocery store. My cupcakes look much nicer and photograph much better and I don’t have to run around to a hundred stores to find pretty wrappers.
In the last couple of years, I have noticed that Reynolds had started coming out with patterns on their wrappers. I was elated. Now I get fun wrappers that don’t soak through! Even better, I have found mini cupcake wrappers by Reynolds. So far all I have found are the plain silver, but it is a step in the right direction.
