EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Bake ahead and freeze the unfrosted cupcakes for up to 3 months, then frost and decorate when needed. Frozen cupcakes are also easier to frost!

Black string licorice is easier to work with when it’s slightly warm. Soften in the microwave on Medium (50%) for 5 to 10 seconds.
