Reynolds StayBrite Baking Cups, reviewed

StayBrite Cupcake Wrappers
Most muffin and cupcake wrappers are designed to keep your baked goods from sticking to the pan, making them easy to remove and easy to pick up and eat. The design options when it came to these wrappers used to be very limited. These days, you can really get creative with your cupcakes just by using a variety of multi-colored or unusually patterned cupcakes. The only problem is that many of these wrappers still perform in much the same way as their plainer forerunners: they absorb some moisture and fat from the cake batter and lose a lot of their color. This can be a bummer when you’ve been looking forward to using that set of funky leopard-print wrappers and end up with a plain result!

This problem was the inspiration behind Reynolds Baked for You StayBrite Baking Cups. These baking cups feature vibrant designs on the outside and are lined with nonstick foil inside, so no moisture bleeds through the cupcake wrapper and the design on the finished product is just as bold as the design in the package. I’ve used these several times now with great results. The wrappers come in an always-changing variety of patterns and they really make an otherwise plain muffin or cupcake look great. If I had any complaints, it would be that they actually released too easily from the cake in some cases and the wrapper started to peel off when I moved the cakes around! This wasn’t a problem for me, but you might want to handle them with care just in case if you’re bringing these to a party and plan on moving them in and out of cupcake carriers or different serving plates.

The muffins, with the StayBrite wrappers, pictured below are Coffee Cake Muffins.

    They have had these liners at my Kroger for a few months. I was excited to buy them for aesthetic purposes, but was pleasantly surprised at how well they held up and did not stick. Great review!

    i was excited to use these for party but it was really irritating to have the wrappers start peeling off almost as soon as the cupcakes cooled. I’d rather have a faded design then cupcakes that slip from the papers.

    The foil won’t breathe like the paper ones. It sounds like that could lead to soggy bottomed cupcakes. Has anybody had that experience?

    LinC – I think that this is pretty unlikely. I often use foil to line pans (makes it easy to remove a whole batch of brownies by lifting the foil out, for instance) and have never had a problem with baked goods getting soggy. I have also used numerous other foil wrappers over the years, not just this particular brand. I think that silicone is much more likely to produce a soggy result by trapping steam as baked goods cool, if you’re not careful, but even with silicone it is not a difficult problem to avoid.

    I love these! I didn’t have a problem with things coming out too easily. I splurge on these whenever I’m taking cupcakes to a party!

    My Kroger carries a Kroger brand “deisgner” cupcake liner that I love. They look very similar to the ones in the picture above, but they aren’t lined with foil. They have worked great so far! I’ve used them for butter cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, and blueberry muffins with no problems. The design comes out looking great and they still peel off easily!

    I have used these several times and love them. No problems yet with peeling. The cupcakes have also maintained their moisture beautifully. My only problem is finding them. Only one store carries them and they are always out.

    I have been trying to find Reynolds pink damask cupcake liners (first saw them in Walmart) but I can’t find them anymore. Does anybody have any idea where I can find them?
