Make-Ahead and Storage:

How far in advance can I make a cupcake?

Cupcakes will stay fresh for 3-4 days after baking.

Store cupcakes, covered, at room temperature. If you do not have a cupcake container with a lid, you can use toothpicks inserted into the top of the cupcakes to keep plastic wraps off of the cupcakes and still cover them for storage.

Can I frost cupcakes in advance?

Yes. Frosted cupcakes, when covered and stored at room temperature should stay fresh for 3-4 days

How do you decorate a basketball cupcake?

Making a basketball design is pretty simple. Frost your cupcakes with orange frosting. With brown (chocolate) frosting or black icing – use a writing tip to make a cross pattern over the orange frosting. Now, make a semi-circle on either side of the cross with the curved section pointing to the center of the cupcake.
