What's the best way to keep uniced cupcakes the freshest possible over night? I have plastic containers that I put them in the fridge and then I ice them the day of the wedding. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks!!

The fridge actually dries cake out.

I put mine in a plastic case I can cover tightly and then just leave them on the counter. I have some that have been here for 3 days now, still moist.

don't refrigerate. but if it's longer than a day or two, i would freeze in a ziploc. Defrost in the bag at room temp.

I definately agree with freezing. I freeze mine in freezer bags. They can be frozen for a few weeks. You could spend the week before the wedding making and freezing. And defrost them the morning of wedding. It also depends on what recipe you're using. A vanilla or chocolate butter cake I think definately needs to be frozen on day of baking, to keep freshness. But a white choc or dark choc mud cupcake actually tastes better the next day, especially dark choc mud. I've only done one wedding so far (but have made loads of cupcakes for other occassions) and I made dark choc mud cupcakes the week before, froze and then two days before the wedding I defrosted and started decorating them. The recipe I used (choc brownie cupcakes)does last for 1 week so I knew they would taste the same 2 -3 day later.

I agree with freezing, too. Gallon size freezer bags are the perfect size for 12 cupcakes. I put them in my cupcake boxes, and ice them in the boxes while still frozen. Let them thoroughly thaw if you're going to put any fondant decorations on them. Then they are just covered with the lid of the box up to overnight.

if you're only leaving them out for a day before decorating, I just line them all up side by side on sheet pans and cover the whole thing in plastic wrap
