  • Pipe chocolate frosting eyes and a nose
  • Sprinkle the edible glitter lightly over the fur

Now your Hedgehog Cupcakes are ready. 

Serve and enjoy!

How to Store Frosted Cupcakes

The best way to ensure your cupcake frosting stays perfect and your cupcakes stay sealed, safe from the moisture of the air or the drying effects of the freezer, is to find a container that is deep enough to hold frosted cupcakes and has a tight-fitting lid.

If you do not have a deep container, place the frosted cupcakes on a sheet tray and put them in the fridge, unwrapped for about an hour. If you are using a buttercream frosting, this will give the frosting enough time to harden.

Then you can wrap the cupcakes on the tray and not worry about the plastic touching the frosting- it is solid and shouldn’t get messy!

How Long Do Cupcakes Last

Most cupcakes (frosted and unfrosted) can be stored at room temperature for up to three days.
