Cover carefully and seal then freeze. I wouldn't frost until morning, allow about an hour for the cupcakes to defrost.

I don't seem to have a problem with cupcakes drying out in that short a time period... not sure if I'm doing anything different. All I do is bake them and then give them a brush with sugar syrup while they are still warm out of the oven and that keeps them nice and moist until I can get around to frosting them - sometimes even two days later. I just keep them in an airtight cake tin. But I'm only a newbie... I may be doing things completely wrong! I don't have enough room in my freezer to be able to freeze cakes until I need them so this is how I do things. Seems to work fine for me though - I get good reviews on the flavour of my cupcakes.

Would you please share your recipe for sugar syrup? About how much do you put on each cupcake? Thank you !

When I do cupcakes that I can't ice immedialty, I just put them in an airtight container still warm, and they acctually come out even better. The moisture gets locked in and the cupcakes absorb them. I keep them in the containers even after icing!

I just do a half and half mix of sugar and boiling water. I dip in a mini pastry brush and give the tops a quick brushing. Hope that helps!

Why won't an air tight container on the cabinet work? That's what I do all the time.

I baked cupcakes Wednesday night and some Thursday morning... I still have several left over and ate some this morning and they are still delish!! Mine are on cooling racks sitting on the counter covered up with towels. Sometimes I put them in the microwave to keep out of the elements.
