Life hack videos have become very popular. If you do not have something, hvat can you use instead. I had bought some cup cake tulip liners a few years ago and thought they were quite expencive, a package with 12 tulip liners cost US $ 10.- ( This is in Norway)
I took a closer look at one of the liners and discovered it was just a square piece of paper that was the same size as some of my oregami paper and I have a lot of oregami paper from my time in South Korea. HERE is my first blog post making cup cake tulip liners.
If tou want the rough and rustic looking kind go HERE to se how they are made
In the video below MiniMe is making a cup cake liner.
The tulip baking cup liner I had bought had four pleats, but you can make as many as you can manage and what you have patients for.
For the ones we made you need:
Origami paper or any printed paper you want
2 glasses that fits your cup cake tin.
Some double sided tape
In the video above MiniMe shoved how to make the one on the left, but if you do not cut the corners of the paper the result will be like the ones in the top picture and the one to the right in the picture above.
- Put a bit of adhesive on the bottom of the glas and along the side of the base.
- Fold the paper squares diagonaly as in the picture.
3. Place the senter of the glas on the center of the square.
4. Press the paper dovn the side of the glas.
5. Fold and pleat the paper-
6. Place a second glas on top and twist to make the folded edges sharper.
7. Do the same with the baking paper
8. Place the baking paper inside the decorative paper.
If you want you can tie a ribbon around the paper liners to decorate, but do this after you have baked the cup cakes.
