Hi there, I am making some cupcakes with a cream filling (ganash, whipped cream and baileys) but I am concered about putting the cupcakes in the fridge and I am worried they will dry out.

If I fill them the night before and serve them at 10am is that to long for them not to be in the fridge?

I just am concered because the filling is gorgeous, but the cupcakes should really be served at room temperate.

Any suggestions?

Thanks icon_smile.gif

afraid i dont know! ganache doesnt need refridgerated, and it may be that mixing that with the cream stabalises it. but i dont know, i might refridgerate anyway, just wrap them well.

I think it would need to go in the fridge, especially at this time of year. Ganache is ok out of the fridge but only because you boil the cream - mixing it with whipped cream effectively means you'd have to treat it like whipped cream.

Are you putting anything on top (buttercream, fondant etc)? That would stop them drying out in the fridge, otherwise wrap well in lots of clingfilm and they should be ok for one night.

BTW they sound delicious so if you ever need a taste-tester in the Sydney area let me know icon_wink.gif
