To all the bakers out there...

I am baking Christmas themed cupcakes for our Children's Christmas Party tomorrow. Now I am baking the cakes as I type but I don't know whether to put the butter icing on tonight or make that up fresh tomorrow morning before I take them down to the Mess.

If you were in my position would you do the icing today or tomorrow??

If you frost them tonight put them in the fridge (I have a chocolate cake with mint frosting doing the same) or frost in the morning

Frost as soon as the cake is completely cool. The frosting helps keep the cake from getting dry.

I thought about that! I will do it tonight then... and maybe post a pic of competed cupcakes before I put them in the fridge... and one may just go missing... purely for testing purposes... I mean I wouldn't want to take bad cakes across tomorrow

Just finished the toppings, they aren't great and I ran out of butter icing so sadly 2 cakes were used for "quality control" and I am happy to report that they are #amazeballs even if I do say so myself the pics are iPhone massive and a little blurry but here are some "Christmas tree" cupcakes... well that was the idea anyway

they're cute!

i have to practice my piping. Dad requested cupcakes for Christmas (as his present, not as part of dinner...LOL) and i need to make'em pretty.
