It’s been a little while since I’ve done an “Ask IHC” segment huh? I’ve answered this question many times via emails so I figured its about time to just post the darn thing for everyone to read. Sound good?
PS. I found the most adorable heart sprinkles in the $1 spot at my favorite french store. You know? Tarjay… LOL. You can bet I am getting in the Valentines mood. I am thinking chocolate cupcakes with heart sprinkles are in the near future, no?
Dear Ms. I heart CuppyCakes,
I have a question related to cupcake, I make a big quantities when I have time for my kids, so i need to know how many days it can be refrigerated, I know you would like to know the ingredients, it’s very simple;
Betty Corker Ready Mix cake + eggs + oil + water
and the frosting is:
Butter + Icing sugar + 2 spoon of fresh milk.
I would love to know how many days i keep the cake in the fridge and also the frosting.
Looking to hear from you very soon.
Thanks & Regards,
I have to admit I giggled at being addressed as “Ms. I Heart Cuppycakes”. So cute! :)
I would say refrigerated maybe 1 week but I personally prefer to freeze my cupcakes if I am working on a large cupcake order. I’ve baked cupcakes unfrosted and froze them for up to 1 month and they still taste yummy after defrosting!

What I usually do is bake the cupcakes, let them cool, wrap each one tightly in saran wrap and freeze them unfrosted. I find that the saran wrap helps the cupcakes retain their moisture. When I am ready for them, I unwrap and let them defrost at room temp for maybe 20-30 minutes (maybe longer depending on your freezer temperature) and then frost with buttercream (or whatever you use). I also like to make big batches of frosting ahead of time and put them in airtight containers and freeze them too! Just let it defrost at room temp before frosting the cupcakes.
Hope that helps!
