Ask Design Mom: Cupcake Liners

September 26, 2006

DM reader Tania asked me where to find good-looking cupcake liners. And as usual the internet provides.

Confectionary House has some wonderful options at very reasonable prices (search “cupcake cups” on their site). They have great choices in solid, bright colors — much more opaque then the grocery store variety. They have foil in gold, silver, red and green. They also have a few interesting prints and lots of cheesy prints. I especially like their stripes and fall leaves. This is also a good source for an amazing variety of sprinkles.

I really want some of their brown cupcake liners. So sophisticated with pale pink or blue frosting.

Reynolds (as in aluminum foil) has a few good choices and you can probably find them at your local grocery store. I’ve used their floral print before and think it’s way cute. Laura showed me their mini, green, “designer” liners and they’re also darling. See the Reynolds line here.

Cake&Candy; offers these cute nutcups that Tania said she’s seen used successfully as cupcake liners. Nice alternative.

Don’t have time to order online? Luckily, silver foil liners are widely available at most grocery stores and look pretty darn fabulous.

I love cupcakes in a nutcup. I also love the unbleached papers made by If You Care products, you can get them at Food Emporium or might lead you to them. One online supplier that I love is , they have lots of pretty glassine liners. Can’t say enough about cupcakes.

OOOH, Thank-you Gabby! I think I’ll order in a variety to have on hand. Any day is a good day for a cup-cake, AND 3/4 of my kids have their birthday in the next few months!

I looked for the kind Laura bought at Stop-n-Shop, but couldn’t find them …. I’ll keep looking.

Thanks again – great work.

Hi there! I have brown cupcake liners in my webstore as well as pink and several other colours. The pink cupcake liners and the brown cupcake liners look fabulous together. You gave me a wonderful idea! I have pink and brown pedestals and I am going to use the pink and brown frostings alternately with the liners and the pedstals. You are right what a fantastic colour combo. Visit me at
