I made cupcakes for my daughter's party (tomorrow). I frosted them with buttercream dream frosting. Should these be in the fridge? Did I mess up with frosting them too soon? Help!
I'm not sure what is in the buttercream dream recipe but if it is stable at room temp leave them at room temp. I find that cuppies dry out quick in the fridge--just too much unfrosted surface that allows moisture to escape.
I would put them in a covered container at room temp. They should be fine.
It contains milk--so wasn't sure if they'd spoil...
Unless there is A LOT of milk, most buttercreams have so much sugar that the milk gets preserved. I use IndyDebi's BC recipe for cupcakes and it is good at room temp for weeks even w/the milk in the recipe.
Thanks. The recipe is double--probably about 8 tbsp of milk, total...maybe 9.
That's nothing for milk. Indy's uses up to 1/2c per batch and is fine at room temp.
Cupcakes should maintain on the counter just like a cake would. Like KJ62798 says, the vast amount of sugar will stabilize the milk. I have never had a problem with leaving them out on the counter (covered) for several days at a relatively cool room temp.
