Sticky Cupcake Wrappers
Lucky Me! Cupcakes!
I consider myself an above-average baker, but have problems with only one recipe... When converting my great-grandma's Texas chocolate sheet cake recipe to cupcakes, I sometimes find that the wrappers stick to the cupcakes. I am careful to prepare them exactly the same each time, but they stick once in awhile. When I pull back the paper, the wrappers pull half of the cake with them. Do you know what might make this happen? Thanks!
Thanks very much for your question Meredith
Sticky cupcake wrapper does seem to happen sometimes when the cupcakes have a lot of sugar in the recipe as the mixture is very dense and moist. I would recommend that you lightly spray the cupcake wrappers with a non-stick canola oil cooking spray when using your great-grandma's Texas chocolate sheet cake recipe.
Another solution might be to use foil cupcake liners. I have never had a problem with the cupcake sticking to these.
I would love you to send in your recipe - the photograph looks fantastic.
