so i have to make 36 cupcakes for my brothers rehearsal dinner tomorrow ( Thursday) i got individual cupcake boxes with inserts that i am going to put the cupcakes in. and then wrap some curler ribbon around it.
i have a few issues that i need some help with
i use a marshmallow based buttercream its a good piping cream but not high temp
2 cups of powder sugar,
2 sticks of unsalted butter
one 7 oz jar of marshmallow fluff
and some vanilla extract
i will have to double the recipe as it will not be enough to pipe on all my cupcakes
all of my previous cupcake orders i used 12-24 count box and stored them in the fridge so the frosting would firm up a bit and not be so soft
do you recommend i put all these boxes in the fridge? or should i just leave them on cookie sheets in the fridge until i am ready to box them. i originally wanted to box them right away but not sure. its cold out where i live ( new England) so i will keep the heat almost off in the kitchen where i will be storing them until transport
my other issue is how will i get all these boxes in my car and to the restaurant should i place them in a cardboard box for easy transport?
Pack them all up in boxes and put them right in the car now. If they freeze a little it won't matter. Bring them in to the venue when you get there. They will all be up to temp in less than a half hour. Temps here in the northest are right around freezing, so the car is a perfect place to store them.
