You can bake cupcakes ahead of time and store at room temperature in airtight sealed cupcake holder or tray. Frost and decorate on day of serving. If chilled, wait for cupcakes to come up to room temperature before eating & serving. Quick tip: Dying frosting the day before will yield richer more vibrant colors as they settle.
