You can make the cakes up to 2 weeks earlier and freeze, but wait to add the glaze until shortly before you serve them.
Miniature desserts are great choices for a dessert buffet. Guests can sample several of the desserts if they are only one or two bites each.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
