How far in advance can you make cupcakes for a wedding
Cupcakes are best the same day they are made. Therefore, you should be picking up your cupcakes the same day as your wedding, or the day before. Cupcakes age very quickly, and can become dense or tough to eat the longer they sit. If you do pick up your cupcakes the day before, place them in the fridge overnight. This will slow the aging process of your wedding cupcakes.
