Author's Notes

Yields 15 cupcakes.

FREEZE: Cupcakes will keep well in the freezer for 4-6 months. I recommend tightly wrapping each cupcake individually in freezer-safe plastic wrap for the best results. Thaw either in the fridge or at room temperature.

MAKE AHEAD: Cupcakes can be made the day before you plan to serve them. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature. Frosting can also be made the day before. Store frosting in an airtight container in the fridge. Allow frosting to come to room temperature before using.
