Today my tip is a simple one!

How to store cupcakes;
Cupcakes do not need to be stored in the fridge, in fact it can be detrimental to the cakes taste and texture. The fridge is going to suck all the lovely moisture out of your beautiful little sweet and your going to end up with a horrible rock!

Most buttercreams are fine out of the fridge, but if you really feel that you have to put your cupcake in the fridge let it come back to room temperature before eating. Otherwise you can store your cupcakes in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

The only time you should not keep them in an airtight container is if the are decorated with a fondant topper, as your fondant will turn into horrible sticky melted goop! So it's best to decorate just before serving.

Happy Caking,
