Not the medium?

You can see how to in the Cupcake Decorating part 2 or 3 I think? The white is just a royal icing swirl. and then there are a gum past flower on top (this can also be found in my tutorials)

How do you decorate them with the blue and white (I can’t see them on your website)? Are they dipped or poured fondant?

I live in the US and went on the sites you provided, but none sold “wonder brand” liners. I even contacted one of the suppliers personally. I mostly use wilton, but I would like a taller cupcake but not jumbo. Thanks

Could you direct me to the correct link? Thank you and I just love your work.

Was wondering if there’s a certain way used to keep the paper from sticking to the cakes? I have lightly coated the paper with nonstick spray before once, which mostly worked, but if there’s a better way, I would like to know. :)

There are so many great things to go away and try but i first want to make sure i have the right equipment. I have clicked on the UK link for the cupcake liners, however, that store is closing down and no longer have the product for sale. Do you know of any other UK websites that sell the grease proof liners? I have looked at many sites but am not sure exactly which ones you use. Many thanks.

I have these sites. I normally buy my cupcake liners from the UK. I think that Cacas may have some, but not sure. So you will have to write and ask them http://www.cacas.no/
You can find some from Sweden here + lots of other sweet things http://www.klaraform.se/ http://www.strosselannat.se/muffinsformar/ http://www.fikamera.se/valkommen-till-fika-mera–c-147-1.aspx

This is a danish shop for cupcake decorating http://annettesfavoritter.dk/shop/muffinforme-5s.html She sell’s Swedish cupcake liners so some of the other Swedish shops should stock them too?

Hope this can help you a bit further :-) Happy Baking!

Thanks a million for this wonderful site! I have enjoyed many hours reading your posts.

I am living in Norway at the moment, and I was wondering if you know of any Scandinavian site that sells these greaseproof cupcake liners? Preferably Norwegian (to avoid paying customs duty) but also Danish or Swedish?

Thank you!

Is there a difference between grease proof and glassine? I bought some grease proof liners but they didn’t hold there color. They were chocolate cupcakes and being so dark, I’m sure that made a difference. I’ve also read that you can double up on the liners.

I am trying to find the tall white liners on the Australian link you have provided (Goodluck Decorations), although the list on the website is quite extensive. Do you happen to know which ones the 50mm base x 35mm wall would be?

Thanks for your help with this :)

These ‘wonder’ cases – I really want to buy some as for my wedding i would like large cupcakes which keep the pink and cream colour of the paper case. however, slightly larger ones do not fit the standard patty tins and fold in on one edge.What would you suggest to prevent this? use a muffin pan or is that too big? Also, how tall are the wonder cases? Love your site – so helpful! Emily

Now and then some of my cc also have minor cracks but as they often get frosting on top I dont mind. It could have something to do with your oven, but I cant say what exactly. I only bake cc around 170-175 C and no fan used.
