I'm in the midst of starting a new cupcake business and I've come across a problem that I can't seem to figure out. So usually when I make cupcakes for an order I make them fresh - the day of. However, when making them the day of is not possible how do you go about storing them? I've noticed that when I put them in my boxes (they are just the regular fold-over-and-tuck-in boxes, with no air-tight seal...if that makes sense lol) they dry out SO BAD! Like...they turn into rocks over night.
So far the only solution I've found is to wrap the whole box in cellophane..but it's not professional at all..
And obviously I could freeze the cake or store the cake in an air tight container and then frost the morning of, but what about for events such as farmers markets? When I would need to have multiple containers of cupcakes ready to go for customers but also in some sort cooler on super hot days...but not letting them get dry. That's the last thing I would want is to hand out rock hard cupcakes. So any ideas on how I can get around this?
Thanks for reading everyone!
