Why do paper liners separate from cupcakes? Take 2

Kay asks: Why do my cupcakes separate from the paper liners?  I’ve tried using foil liners with the same results.  Please help.

Baking S.O.S. says: I have had this problem many times myself.  In fact, I addressed this question in an earlier blog post .

These are the solutions I have found to be most helpful:

1. Do not spray or grease the cupcake pans or the paper liners at all.  Put the paper liners in the pan and leave them dry.

2. When you first remove the baked cupcakes from the oven, allow them to cool in the pan for just a few minutes, then carefully remove them from the pan and set them on a wire rack to cool completely.  Steam can condense between the cupcakes and the pans as they cool in the pan, creating moisture which will then loosen the papers from the cupcakes.

3. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before attempting to remove the papers and eat them.  When the cupcakes are still warm, the paper liners tend to stick to the cupcakes more, so removing the papers will also remove some of the cupcake along with them.  If you allow the cupcakes to cool completely, the papers will be easier to remove without crumbling the cupcakes in the process.
