Are you hankering after cupcakes but don’t have a cupcake tray? Well, you’re in luck, we can show you a number of ways of how to make cupcakes without a cupcake tray.

How to Make Cupcakes Without a Cupcake Tray?

Method 1: Paper cupcake liners can work without a cupcake tray, especially if you are careful not to overfill the liners. You can then place them in a snug pan that will keep 5-6 paper liners upright.

Method 2: Bake your cake in a sheet cake pan (a large, shallow rectangular pan) and when your cake is cooled, use a round cookie cutter to cut circles into your cake. You can leave the cakes as a single layer or double them up for chic mini layer cakes!

Method 3: You can purchase disposable aluminium cupcake liners that will help your batter retain a cupcake shape as it bakes.

Method 4: Do you have small ramekins at home? These small nifty oven-proof dishes can be the perfect fix, especially if you only want to make a small number of cupcakes.
