DIY Cupcake Liners

I have always wondered, what do u  do to the remaining odd scraps of baking paper after u are done cutting up the rest for ur baking projects?

For me, i just pile them up in a corner.

I know, that’s just me being messy and lazy right? For after all, it’s almost impossible to even pile them up neatly given their irregular shapes ( Remember they are scraps)…

But today, maybe just today.. Laziness decides to pay. I know. That’s against mother nature. But it’s true.

For there is DIY cupcake/ muffin liners.

It’s a no brainer really. U just scavenge over ur pile of scraps, see whatever fits, and push it into ur cupcake tins.

A gentle tip: Scraps that are square, or even remotely square works best!

Pictured above is a Pandan sponge cake.

The liners were the winners today. They provide support for the cakes to rise, and for green, economical living. YAYS.

Recipe: From a backdated “saji” magazine —> That’s a foodie magazine in Indonesia

4 egg whites

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

    Looks very soft and moist!! I’m a little skeptical with the amount of pandan paste added though! 1 tbsp sure seems like a lot! Would it instead have been 1 tsp by any chance?

      Hi Sammie,
      Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. But i really couldnt find the original recipe from which this came from. One Tablespoon sounds just about right for me. It’s pandan paste, not extract.. the gooey, green, thick colour paste. But then again, feel free to decrease the amount as you see fit!
