How early can I make my cupcakes. I have a shower on Saturday afternoon and want to bake and fill the cupcakes tonite (Thursday). Is this too soon?

Cupcakes dry out pretty fast...I'd probably do them Friday night or Sat morning, unless I had some good way of keeping them from drying out.

They do tend to dry out fast, I also would't go any earlier than Friday night. If you have to start earlier, Use foil wrapper, cover the tops tightly with plastic wrap, and decorate as late as you can.

Try baking them tonight & freeze them until Saturday morning/ Friday evening. I find that my cupcakes get more moist when I freeze them

Cupcations,

Do you ever have problems with the cupcake papers pulling away from the cake before you even frost them?

When I have a large order I also freeze my after I bake them, seal up tight so no freezer burn and they defrost quite quickly. I make them up to a week in advance and have had no taste problem.
