Making cupcakes in advance?
Attention all fluther bakers.. I need some advice. I am going to a family reunion and there will be a cupcake competition. I have the option of baking them once I arrive but since it’s a reunion, honestly I would rather be spending time with family members once I get there rather than baking. I will, however, make the frosting there. So my question is, how far in advance can I bake cupcakes and they’ll still be good? Should I refrigerate? Could I even make the batter ahead of time and bake them once I get there? The competition isn’t until the second day of the reunion, so I need to keep that in mind. Any advice would be appreciated!! I really really want to win :))
