  • Let the cupcakes cool completely. Before wrapping the cupcakes, they need to cool on a wire rack. 
  • Wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Once the cupcakes are cooled, wrap them in saran wrap or aluminum foil.
  • Store in an airtight container. Store the individual wrapped cupcakes in an airtight container or a freezer-safe plastic bag with an airtight seal.
  • Label the container with the date for freshness.
  • Place the bag in the freezer or the refrigerator.


Store frosted cupcakes in a cupcake container that can be closed. Something like 12 Cavity Cupcake Plastic Container or any of the containers below.
