ADepending on your icing recipe, you most likely will need to refrigerate these cupcakes. I hope they've been in the fridge for the last 10 hours! I can't tell you whether they will last till your son's birthday. I always bake cupcakes very last minute - the last 24 hours at most as they really go stale quickly. However, I don't know your recipe etc, you'll have to try them for yourself. I know it's not what you want to hear, but if they have a lot of cream in the icing (and it's not a ganache) and you haven't had them in the fridge, I would throw them out and start over. You don't want to make people sick!

Awhat's the proportion of ingredients did you use? If most of it is heavy cream it needs to be refrigerated
