How do I stop grease from going through my cupcake liners?

by Nancy

I recently attempted to make cupcakes for my daughters first birthday. I purchased expensive cupcake patties and was really disappointed when I noticed that the grease soaked through the cupcake pattie.

Can anyone shed some light as to why this happened and how I can avoid it?

Greasy cupcake liners NEW

To avoid greasy wrappers I double wrap it. Two cupcake wrappers in each. This works well.

Preventing greasy cupcake liners

What I do is as soon as they come out of the oven I immediately take them out of the cupcake pan. This stops it, works like wonders! Also before you go to use the pan again take a paper towel and wipe down the inside. Another tip! If you your making several pans dont fill your cupcake liners with batter until a min before you're about to put them in the oven. It makes it greasy when the batter sits in the liners before they're baked. Hope this helps some!

Grease seeping through cupcakes
by: Angel of Chillicother

I so would love the answer to this, but I have to say i think it is the cupcake wraps themself. But when i take them out of the oven i place them on a rack, and it seems to help at times also. Over all i think it is the cupcake wrapper or maybe the pans because I have also found the newer cupcake pans seem to have an effect. I have some old ones from when me and my husband first got together in 1999 and those seem to not leave the grease residue on the cupcakes like the newer pans do.
