Hi there.

I have to make 60 cupcakes for saturday morning, and I have never done cupcake before. Fist of all can I bake them today and they will be fresh for Saturday morning?
I just baked some and they come out plain. It is the recipe that I always use for baking, and my cakes are always fine. The cupcakes came out as the regular cake. almost flat.
Some were over filled and spread to the sides but not to up.
Is this normal or is my recipe? They are flat and the butter is bigget that the cupcake size, so I had to take those part off.

Please any advice would help me. I just want to cry now. what should I do?

Also I am planning on putting some filling on them. I just got a set at Michaels for that, but I am not sure if I should put the filling as soon as they come out of the oven, or when they are already cold.

Help please.

thanks o much in advance.

I wouldn't bake them this early unless you intend to freeze them.I would never ice a cupcake right out of the oven or the icing will melt.Wait until they are cooled and cold to the touch.I'm not sure what you mean by filling because the way you are describing it you are talking about the icing.Filling goes inside a cake or cupcake.
