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 moulds, such as aluminium moulds, for example.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Prepare the mold. You must smear the inside of the mold with oil, butter or mold release spray. Then spread some flour or cocoa on the mold, depending on the recipe.
  2. Preheat the oven.
  3. Pour the mixture. Just before you put it in the oven, see the mixture on the pan.
  4. Bake for the right time.
  5. It serves in the paperboard or mould 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. This way, the fat will settle well on the surface.
  • When pouring the mixture into the mould, you must do so from one point. This will allow it to be distributed evenly, filling in the gaps. You can help with a trowel or spatula to smooth the surface.
  • Remember to fill the mold to 2/3 of its capacity, so the mixture will not overflow when it grows.
  • It is important to note that to get a better finish, it is sometimes necessary to use the paperboard moulds together with other moulds. Especially when preparing cupcakes, it is good to put the paperboard into another mould made of a more rigid material. This will help to maintain the round shape of these desserts.
  • Before putting the mixture in the oven, tap the mould against the worktop. This will allow the large air bubbles to escape, resulting in a more uniform mass without holes.
