6 New Uses for Cupcake Liners
Clever ways to repurpose an everyday item.
1. Drip Catcher
Before serving that Popsicle, slip the stick through a foil liner.
2. Multicolor Crayons
Fill foil liners about two-thirds full with unwrapped crayon stubs in assorted colors, place in a muffin tin, and bake at 275° F until melted (about 10 minutes). Then freeze for cool colorers with zigzag edges.
3. Mini Ghosts
Flip over white ones; stick on googly eyes.
4. Paper Lanterns
For a soft glow, poke the bulbs on a strand of miniature lights through the flat bottoms of liners.
5. Heart Cupcakes
Place liners in a muffin tin and fill with batter. Into each cup, between the filled liner and the tin, slip in a balled-up foil liner. This will create a notch at the cupcake’s top, shaping it into a “heart.” Bake as usual.
6. Pretty Garland
Use a heavy-duty needle to string twine through flattened liners, leaving very little space between each one.
