How to store cupcakes

You can bake cupcakes ahead of time. Let them cool completely and then store them in an airtight container. They will be good for up to 2 days.

Then when you want to frost them you can do so when you’re ready to serve them.

Cupcakes are best stored at room temperature. Storing cupcakes in the fridge dries them out.

You can freeze cupcakes in large freezer bags. When you thaw them, just remove them from the freezer and let them thaw on a plate at room temperature. It will take a few hours.

Be sure to remove the liner if using one when you thaw the cupcake.
