I have a friend who wants me to make cupcakes for her party on a Saturday afternoon.

Now unfortunately I will not be able to be at this party - as I will be away this weekend. I do not want to disappoint her. So if I bake and frost the cupcakes Fri morn/Fri nite and drop them off to her Fri evening before I go away - which is the best way to store them??

I usually put cupcakes in the dozen plastic cupcake containers. Should I have her fridge them or leave them on the counter?

Any tips for keeping the cake moist???

Thanks for any help!

Refrigerating or not refrigerating depends on whether the frosting or filling are shelf stable or perishable. icon_smile.gif

If not perishable, storing in a covered box (to prevent dust/fingerprints/condensation) on the counter will be fine.

I am in the same situation as you are. I am doing a friends baby shower that is on Saturday. I will be leaving Friday afternoon. I have already baked my cuppies and made my fondant decorations. Tomorrow is making frosting to frost Friday morning. I store my cuppies since I have 50 of them in a wedding dress box. It is air tight and I have never had any problems leaving them on the counter over night. Good luck with yours, dont worry they will turn out just fine.
