I have an extensive collection of baking cups and have a wide variety of sizes and colors that I choose from each time I bake. For holidays, it is usually easy to choose a themed cupcake wrapper, but for everyday baking, it can be nice to use something a little more understated, especially for baking a batch of simple bran muffins that doesn’t cry out for brightly colored cupcake wrappers. I actually really like brown baking cups because they compliment a wide variety of baked goods and also look good in photographs and that is what let me to pick up a package of Beyond Gourmet Unbleached Baking Cups in the first place.
These baking cups are made from completely unbleached, chemical-free paper and have a very natural brown tone to them. They perform just as well as most other muffin papers I’ve used, releasing muffins easily when it comes time to serve. I like the light brown color for baking muffins in particular and would still probably opt for something brighter for most cupcake recipes. The fact that they’re environmentally friendly and unbleached is a big plus for a lot of shoppers and it is nice to know that there are some good options out there for baking even if you’re not specifically interested in brown baking cups!
