Hi: I am new to cake and cupcake baking. Could someone give me some advice as to how long cupcakes will stay fresh. If I bake them on a Thursday for example would they stay fresh if they are iced and put in a box for a party for Saturday. I could use the same info for a cake as well. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Hi Canadian,
I usually bake my cupcake the day before Max. Two days before and then ice them on the day needed.
Hope this helps.. Happy baking :-)

I would say the same thing. I bake my cakes 2 days ahead of time, put them in the freezer before carving and crumb coating. I usually decorate, ice, fondant cover, etc the day before the client needs the cake.
