What can I add to cupcakes to keep them moist for at least 1-2 days. I usally bake one day in advance or the day of to avoid dryness. Plus I started adding a little bit of oil...hopefully it worked for my customers today

Scratch or mix?
My cupcakes always stay fresh for up to 4 days, so I never can understand this. I am starting to wonder what it is I do differently.

yes I agree with Linda, my cupcakes definitely stay fresh for several days. I use mixes. Maybe it's the way you're storing them?

I'm sorry, I forgot to mention what Mbark said it would probably be useful.

I bake from scratch and they are still moist for several days. How long are you baking them? And storing too.

No matter if I do cupcakes or cakes, I freeze them for at least a day first. It depends on when i need them decorated. I think it makes a difference.. Maybe it's all in my but it works for me.. Good Luck
