PARCHMENT TULIP CUPCAKE LINER TUTORIAL


Did you know that you can make those fancy little parchment cupcake/muffin liners that you see in fancy French bakeries quite easily at home?


Peaches and Little Lu are here to show you how. Peaches and Lu were passed on to me by my grandmother, Catharine. Catharine wasn't known for her cooking, but what she did give to me, besides Peaches and Lu, is an appreciation for things from yesteryear. She was a scrapbooker, a collector, and inspired my nostalgia for family history and ephemera.

So, without further ado, we give you:


THE FANCY SCHMANCY PARCHMENT TULIP CUPCAKE LINER TUTORIAL


Step 1: Cut Parchment Paper (available in grocery and craft stores) in to 5.5" squares


Step 2: Lay parchment square evenly over cupcake opening on your cupcake pan



Step 3: Using a drinking glass or jar, the same diameter as the cupcake opening, gently press to mold parchment to pan. (note: "Has this glass gotten smaller?" Peaches regrets eating that extra cruller and forgoing her AM Yoga class)



Step 4: Remove glass, crimp any weak folds in the parchment, fill with batter and bake



~FIN~

  5. Ok...very cute and inspiring. Great storytelling. I think I'll actually try it, since I happen to have mental block when it comes to remembering to buy cupcake papers. Holly at lifelaughlatte.blogspot.com

  8. You are hilarious and Peaches and Lu are very cute.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I love making cupcakes and decorating them. I might even make the edges fancy with my scrapbook scissors.

  9. That was the cutest tutorial I have ever seen! I would never have thought to make my own cupcake liners, it's a very clever idea. It would be much more fun if Peaches and Lu were around to help, though!

  10. What a great crafty idea. Peaches and LULU kinda scare me a bit though. I don't know why, I'm a total freak like that.
