How do I store my cupcakes?
We suggest that you refrigerate your cupcakes overnight and leave them at room temperature for 1 hour before serving. If you will be eating the cupcakes more than 24 after buying them, we suggest freezing them in an air-tight container until the day you serve them. To thaw the cupcakes, leave them at room temperature for 2 hours while still sealed in the air-tight container.
