Baking Tulips - (what are they made of?)

scums | Jul 7, 2013 03:36 AM

Hi everyone, I had a question about baking tulips. Such as these:

So I tried to make them at home with regular parchment paper... it came out beautifully using my origami skills! However when I bake with them because they are non-stick + greasproof they don't stick to my cake like they would when using regular baking cups or has that same effect when you would peel off the wrapper and some of the cake goes with it.. so I did a bit of research... and I found that baking cups are typically made with 'dry wax paper' is that correct?

So the wax is pretty much infused inside of the paper. However, baking with wax paper is not even recommended because it tends to smoke/burn. But if the standard baking cups are originally made w/ dry wax paper. Is it okay if I purchased dry wax paper (paper patties, originally used for placing in between burgers to keep them from sticking) and make tulip baking cups & bake with them?

Since they would be filled with cupcake batters, would the moisture from the batter prevent it from burning?

Hope someone could help me!
