To bake desserts with these molds you don’t need to be an expert. In fact, the procedure is similar to that followed with other types of molds, such as aluminum ones, for example.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Prepare the baking tin. You must smear the inside of the baking pan with oil, butter or mold release spray. Then sprinkle some flour or cocoa on the baking pan, depending on the recipe.
  2. Preheat the oven.
  3. Pour the mixture into them. Just before you put it in the oven, pour the mixture into the tin.
  4. Bake for the indicated time.
  5. Serve in the paper-cardboard or demoulding mould.
  6. Discard the mold once you’re done using it.


  • It is recommended that you prepare the mold for a while before pouring the mixture. That way, the grease will settle well on the surface.
  • When you pour the mixture into the mold, you must do it from the same point. This will allow it to be distributed evenly, filling in the gaps. You can help with a palette or spatula to smooth the surface.
  • Remember to fill the mold up to 2/3 of its capacity, so the mixture will not overflow when it grows.
  • It is important to note that for a better finish, it is sometimes necessary to use paperboard molds along with other molds. Especially when preparing cupcakes, it is good to put the paperboard in another mold made of a more rigid material. This will help to maintain the round shape of these desserts.
  • Before putting the mixture in the oven, knock the mould dry against the worktop. This will allow the large air bubbles to escape, obtaining a more uniform dough without holes.
