How do you store your cupcakes in the fridge?

Looking for tips and hints. icon_smile.gif

SoFloGuy, is that a trick question? I never store cupcakes in the fridge. Batter goes into the fridge, baked cupcakes stay on the counter for one day or in the freezer for longer storage. (Although I try to eat them all so there's no storage issue.)

I put mine in the fridge. What am I gonna do eat 24 full size cupcakes all at once. I can only eat 20 in one sitting and put the rest in the fridge and they are fine. icon_biggrin.gif

I don't store my cupcakes in the fridge either. I store them on the counter in the tupperware container or freeze for longer storage.

Lol. Well if you must put them in the fridge because of a perishable filling or something, make sure they are wrapped well - but realize that this may make the liners pull away or decorations melt and the moisture is too trapped. I'm with Mimi, room temp for a day, freezer for longer.

Ditto, freezer or counter for me.

Any time I've put cupcakes in the fridge, they've gotten dry, so I won't do it now. Count me among the counter or freezer crowd! icon_smile.gif

Why do you need tips and hints then? I don't mean that in a b*tchy way, just genuinely curious.

I just have them on a plate with a plastic bag around them, I wonder is anyone has better storage ideas in the fridge for them. I didn't know that people didn't keep cakes and cupcakes in the fridge. icon_redface.gif

When I put mine in the freezer I usually use a rubbermaid-type container so they don't get squished. That would work in the frig too and no worry about the plastic wrap getting on the icing.

There is a local bakery (they've even competed and won Cupcake Wars twice), and they put their cupcakes in the frig. They are so dry. Yuck!

Mimi, I have seen your bio picture. Is it airbrushed? You couldn't eat a bunch of cupcakes if you tried.

For those who don't know Mimi, she is a published author and she is very fit.

I too do not put them in the refrigerator. I bake for customers so that there is no refrigeration or freezer and I just add the buttercream jusst before pickup or delivery.

If I have extras, my family knows to eat them in two days and then they get thrown away. And I always have plenty of people happy to take my over-runs.

I never put cupcakes (or cake either) in the fridge. Refrigeration drys out cake. It's a terrible way to treat nice baked goods.
