We use only quality ingredients and do not use preservatives in our cupcakes therefore they are best enjoyed the same day they are made. Cupcakes can last up to 3 days if stored in an air tight container...but why wait?!
Our cupcakes are best enjoyed the same day they are made; however, if you do not plan to consume your cupcakes the day you buy them then you should either transfer them to an air tight container or wrap the box they come in with plastic to prevent air from getting at them. We do not recommend refrigerating your cupcakes as it tends to dry out the cake. The only time you should refrigerate is if you have purchased flavors which contain cream cheese or fruit and do not plan to consume them within a few hours.
Since we bake our cupcakes fresh every day we have never had the need to freeze them; however, we have many customers who have told us they freeze our cupcakes and they taste just as yummy. Just remember to wrap the cupcakes well and then let them come to room temperature before consuming them.
