You might ask why would you need or want to make these when they are readily available at most stores and at reasonable prices; well for those days when you just have to make cupcakes or muffins and you are out of paper cases plus these work out a lot cheaper and don’t take long to make at all – you could even bribe your kids to help you. My Aunty Christine showed me how to make these and her 3 and 4 year old granddaughters love helping her cut out the circles too.
You will need the following state of the art equipment:
- Baking paper
- Round lid of sorts (I used the lid of a 250g Nestle cocoa tin) it is the ideal size
Step1: Draw circles on the baking paper.
Step 2: Cut out your circles and fold to create quarters.
Step 3: Cut about half way down the centre of each quarter.
Step 4: Place into your cupcake/muffin tins.
They fold over themselves and seal perfectly when you squish them down.
Et voilà, your very own homemade cupcake case.
Spray lightly with cooking oil before filling.
