How to make tulips or cups liners for pans.

What you will need:


parchment or wax paper

glass (should fit into pan fairly loosely)

Cut wax or parchment paper to (about 6 x 4 inches for every liner). increase or decrease size according to pan size.

Place parchment paper into cup of pan and place glass into pan form tulip.

And there you have it easy cup liners or tulips.

Why should I use cup liners?!

Using cup liners gives any cup cake or muffin a more festive or celebratory look and makes for easy pan clean up.Cup liners comes in all colors ,shapes and sizes. I always spray my cupcake/muffin pan first so the cupcake/muffin tops don't stick to the pan. Then I insert the liners, and spray the liners lightly also, just to make sure the papers peel away nicely.
