Cupcakes sticking to wrapper

I've tried to make cupcakes before and I can't get them to come clean off of the paper wrappers. I know it's possible because store bought cupcakes always come clean off their wrappers. Any tips on what i'm doing wrong?

You probably aren't doing anything wrong - it depends on the density of the cake, quality and oiliness of the paper liner. I use commercial paper liners which most bakeries would use. They are a little heavier and have a bit of a sheen on the inside. Also, the fresher the cake, the softer it is, with more likelyhood to crumb when the wrapper is removed. Try putting them in the fridge an hour or so and see if that helps (using your regular cases - but don't oil them, it won't help and will just make it messier).

I think my old liners must hve been pregreased; I have to Pam the new ones I've bought. Thanks for posting - glad it wasn't just me !!!

I lightly brush the cupcake liners with melted butter, and that helps release the cupcakes more easily.
