Hello All,
Question - how can I stop frosting from melting? More so the vanilla frosting? I have noticed that once I put my cupcakes in a cake pan with a lid for storage the vanilla/white frosting tends to melt after a day or so. It does not seem to effect the chocolate. Any idea's? Should I not be storing them in a cake pan with a lid, should they remain in the fridge until ready to serve? So many questions.... icon_biggrin.gif

What kind of frosting are you using? Is it an all butter buttercream, does it have crisco, or is it a whipped frosting?

I keep my cupcakes in the refrigerator until about an hour before I use deliver them. Leftovers go back in the fridge, and get used within a couple of days.

I've never had a problem with my frosting melting, but when I put toppings or candy on my cupcakes and leave them out too long, the candy does melt.

I usually use a buttercream, but when I am lazy, I use vanilla frosting in the can. and it seems to be what's in the can that will begin to melt. Guess I should just stick with making my own frosting. icon_surprised.gif) Or keep them in the fridge until time to serve......

Thanks for your help!
