I was hoping maybe the creative forces of Craftster could help me out! I am making butterbeer cupcakes and want to make them so that they look like they are in a little beer mug/glass, but I'm looking for a disposable option. It would be best if I could somehow make a tall cup from parchment paper since the batter would show through and it would look like frosted glass. However, upon searching online I can only find the regularly shaped parchment paper liners and haven't found any tutorials or anything. My next thought was to use paper souffle cups... but unless I could find the tall ones somewhere, the glasses would be slightly out of proportion and they wouldn't be as see-through as parchment paper.



Ideas?

I don't have any suggestions for you, but hope you'll post them when you finally figure it out.  The frosting will look like foam!

My suggestion would be to bite the bullet and hand cut some parchment ones to the height you want. After you bake them off you could glue a pre-made handle on your 'mug'.

I actually came up with a folding pattern that was pretty simple! I'll post the finished project soon!
