Tulip Baking Cups / Tulip Cupcake Liners – Product Highlight

Have you come across a muffin that’s been in one of those brown “wrappers” and wondered what are those “wrappers” called?  well – they are called Tulip Baking Cups and we proudly carry a full product line of them.


Let me share the detailed breakdown on them:

  • What are the colors they come in?
  • What is the bottom/base size of the baking cup?
  • How tall are these baking cups?
  • What does random vs uniform mean?
  • What do all the numbers mean?
  • Where can I get these in large quantities?

Ok, so to start – our Tulip baking cups are made with greaseproof paper.  You will need to use a baking pan, as these baking cups are not standalone.

What colors do they come in?

Brown, White, Red, Pink*

*Pink is available in limited quantities and sizes only. Get’em while they are in stock!

What is the bottom/base size of the baking cup?

They come in 2 main bottom/base sizes:

50 mm Base (~2 inches) – these fit a Standard muffin pan

35 mm Base (~1 3/8″ inches) – these fit a Mini muffin pan.

How tall are these baking cups?

There are several heights for Standard Bases (50 mm) tulip baking cups:

  • 175 – This correlates to ~2 3/4″ to 4″. Fits about 5 oz of batter
  • 160 – This correlates to ~2″ to 3 1/2″. Fits about 4 oz of batter
  • 150 – This correlates to ~1 3/4″ to 3″. Fits about 3.5 oz of batter
  • 132 – This correlates to ~1 1/4″ to 2 3/4″. Fits about 3 oz of batter.

Here is a picture of some of our tulip baking cups compared to a regular cupcake liner to provide a visual of the heights.


There is 1 height for the Mini Base (35 mm) tulip baking cups

  • 110 – This correlates to ~1 3/8″ to 2 1/s”. Fits about 1 oz of batter.

What does Random vs Uniform mean?

This is talking about the tips of the tulip. Random means that all tips in the liner are unique in height and not the same. You could have some taller, shorter, some with 3 tips, etc.  Uniform means that all tips in the liner are the same height. There isn’t any variation and all the baking cups will be exactly the same.

Would I recommend one over the other?  It is just about preference in what you want the muffin to look like as the end product. Some folks like the uniqueness of the random tip and some like the consistency of the uniform tip.

What do all the numbers mean? 

Our product listings typically have 3 different sets of numbers.

For example

175 x 50 – Tulip Baking Cups – 2000 count.

175 – this first number is talking about the measurements of the tulip paper when they are flattened out. The larger the number, typically the taller the tulip baking cup.

50 – this 2nd number is the bottom/base dimensions of the tulip baking cup. This will tell you whether it will be fitting into a standard muffin tin or a mini muffin tin.

2000 cnt – this 3rd number is the quantity that is in the product package.

Where can I buy them in large quantities?

At Bakers Stock of course! Check out our wholesale section for case pricing.

{Party Feature} Super Train-tastic 2nd Birthday

It isn’t quite yet 6 months since we celebrated my little boy turning 2….and as the saying goes “better late than never”, so I’m proudly sharing some pics from his train themed birthday celebration!

Selecting the theme for his birthday was pretty easy this year – he loves trains.  He has a Thomas the Train wooden railway set that he plays with every day, so the thought of a train themed party seemed to fit right along his interests.

Train Birthday

Despite his birthday being in November, it had been a rather warm fall (Yes, we live in California) – so we opted to celebrate at the local neighborhood park.

For the cake, I decided to order a cake from the local grocery store and accented it with a train topper that I made from gum paste.  I got the how-to tutorial from this blog post and loved the idea of adding a couple extra train cars to carry two candles!


For extra dessert (we can’t only have cake!), we had some chocolate cupcakes and marshmallow pops!

Train Birthday

I designed some  printable invitations, cupcake flags and and then with putting some bright blue tablecloths on the benches – it brought the park right to life! For the party favors, I used some clear boxes, filled them with some train themed goodies and tied them up with red twine and blue twine!

Train Birthday

All in all, it was a great day. My little guy was thrilled to spend the day with family and friends and enjoyed several rides around the park on the Choo Choo train!

Train Birthday

Happy Train-tastic 2nd Birthday!!
