Ok so yeah i know... this is my first time baking cupcakes.. its my daughters 4th bday tomorow and just have no clue.. i can read the box of instructions... but okay this is what i figure is how to do it..

1. bake all the cupcakes today... let them sit overnight at room temp?
2. in the morning (tomorow) put all the frosting/sprinkes
3. Decorage with cupcake toppers/pictures/images that i have
4. set them in fridge to stay fresh?
5. Take them out closer to the time of party? Or cake time?

Thanks LAdies

Let me know if thats the order? LOL kinda scared but up for the challenge

I normally bake and frost the day before. As long as your house is cool you can leave them out, covered.



Eta, you have to let them cool completely before you frost.

Bake them today. Cool completely, store covered overnight.
Frost in the morning & if its just a can of frosting leave out on the counter. If its a whipped cream frosting then refrigerate until cake time.

we bought the plastic can of frosting.. it was normally at room temp when we bought it so keep it out right?

Yes you can leave them out all day without covering after frosting & decorating.
