How Far in Advance Can I Make Frosted Cupcakes and Cakes?

Emma Christensen

Q: I am baking some cakes, cupcakes, muffins, and brownies for an event. This is a 2-day event and I need to start baking in advance. How can I store the products if I start baking three days prior to the event? How long will frosted cupcakes and cakes stay for? I will be using whipped cream and buttercream frosting. 

Also, how can I display the products at the event? The weather is quite humid out here.
