I hear a lot of people talking about freezing their baked goods and that sounds stranger to me than keeping them in the fridge, but I'm willing to learn new things and try new ways.

If you properly cover/wrap cake, freezing it will not hurt it in the least. Actually, I've found sometimes it's helped improve the texture! I don't freeze very often, but any time I have, it's thawed out beautifully.
I'd rather do that than put them in the fridge, to be honest.

I put mine in a snapware cupcake container then put them in the fridge. Just had one yesterday that had been in the fridge since Friday (ate it Sunday afternoon) and it was absolutely scrumptious!

Ok, so I am now at a point where I have this same issue. I just opened a bakery and I have a small selection of cupcakes in a display. So at night I cant afford to just  throw away every thing that didn't sell that day so I have been putting them in a huge container and putting that in the refrigerator so that direct air is not on them, but now I am rethinking this. Perhaps I should just put the container on the counter in the bakery kitchen overnight.  Feedback please, I need help from someone with experience.

Pounds,

many members have said they don't refrigerate them. But you should also think about the frostings, and fillings you use.

Are you happy with the  quality of cupcakes the next day?  If you are then just do what you are doing.

You can also freeze them.  There is a difference between freezer "use" and freezer "abuse" :)

I have tried putting them in a container and putting that container on the cooling rack at night rather than in the refrigerator.  They seem to be fine, I put ones with filling in the refrigerator anyway. Thanks for your help.

 

Cake on my sisters!  LOL

I have purposefully put some in the refrigerator for both one and two days to test the quality, and for one day I find the quality is not noticeably different for most of my cupcakes(I make everything from scratch, if that matters). Things like my lemon meringue...the frosting doesn't hold up well in the fridge.

 

For most things though - the 2 days still tasted "fine" but not as fresh as I would like, and I don't think I would sell them at that point. But the next day - probably. I would just make sure to do a quality taste-test. Or sell them at a discount as day-old? 

 

If I know ahead of time I'm not going to be using the cupcakes I bake in the next day though, I will freeze them - well-packaged, unfrosted, and unfilled. I have frozen them for up to a week and haven't had any adverse effects and in fact along the lines of what another poster said, I sometimes find the moistness and texture to be better with the cupcakes that have been frozen for a few days.  Just my 2 cents!

If you say you like how your cupcakes taste when in the fridge. Then why ask for tips and hints then? You're asking people for opinions and not taking them

I don't bake a lot of cupcakes but last time I did, I put them in a tupperware box and left them on the counter (with no frosting) on top. The next day they were sticky on top, like there was humidity! they were perfectly cold when i storage them, I made them in the morning and storaged around 9pm
