Make-Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

To Make-Ahead: Black forest cupcakes can be made up to a week in advance. Just make sure to keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator to stop them from drying out.

To Freeze: You can freeze your cupcakes for up to three months. It’s best to freeze each component separately, but you can also preassemble and freeze the cupcakes once frosted. Just make sure they don’t get squished to prevent ruining the frosting. Once frozen, take them out, wrap each cupcake in wax paper, and store them in a freezer-safe, air-tight container. This prevents sticking and keeps them from becoming freezer-burned.
