Cupcake liners always look so cute in the store but most of them just don’t hold up so well through the baking process. One of my baking pet peeves is when I find matching cup cake liners to go with a party theme and after baking you can’t see the design at all. This is particularly true with dark colored cupcakes. So the other day as I was strolling through Michael’s I was excited (but a little skeptical) when I found Color Cups. These are a new line of foil cupcake liners with all kinds of awesome designs by Wilton. The packaging claims that the colors will stay bright even after baking. So I decided to pick up a couple and test them out.


A package of 36 sells for $2.99 at Michaels. Thus making these slightly more expensive than standard liners but I thought that if their claims were true, the price would be well worth it.

I decided that to test the liners with blueberry muffins. And they worked perfectly. The liners looked exactly the same after baking! My only warning is that these felt a lot hotter than standard liners. When I was taking the muffins out of the tin, touching the liners seemed to be as hot as the metal pan. So be a bit more careful with these.

Wilton Color Cups have successfully passed my test. I will definitely be buying these in the future. Hopefully Wilton expands this line to have even more options.

Also as a side note, Michaels has a phone app for both the iPhone and Android. The app has a coupon section and in the entire time I’ve had the app it’s always had current coupons available. I have found this to be incredibly useful as I am constantly cutting out coupons and then not having them with me. So just something to keep in mind; for this particular purchase I had a 40% off coupon.
