Okay stupid question, I know. But I am new at all this.

My oldest son is turning 5 tomorrow!! He is in preschool this year, from 12-3p. I will be bringing cupcakes for his class tomorrow right before they let out. Should I make the cupcakes tonight or tomorrow? They would taste better if I made them that day, but I am worried about not having enough time before I have to be there to bring the cupcakes.
BTW I have a toddler who occupys most of my time.

  • Do what will be easiest for you.. That really does sound like doing them tonight. Either way the kids will enjoy them.

  • make the cupcakes, freeze them in gallon plastic bags, frost and decorate tthe next day. You don't even have to let them defrost before you frost/decorate them and they'll taste really moist!

  • Yeah do it the night before, so there won't be any anxiety.

  • PS, while your decorating, put your toddler in his/her high chair and let them "decorate" a cupcake

  • Whatever is easiest. Kids like sugar. Period. You could give them a giant marshmallow and they would be satisfied. :)

  • Make them tonight. I made some Tuesday for my DD to bring Wednesday - they were a hit, and the teachers said they were really yummy. They're still sitting out (the extras) and still taste fresh today.

  • I hate to add this in, but a lot of places do not allow that, because of allergies and things like that. Have you checked
