Expert Tips

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.

Try a practice run well in advance of the wedding, then you'll know exactly what to expect. You can make the cupcakes up to 2 weeks ahead of time. Wrap unfrosted cupcakes well with plastic wrap; freeze. Six hours before frosting, remove from the freezer and loosely cover. Frost, loosely cover and serve within 24 hours.

For a lovely presentation, consider cupcake wrappers from a website like fancyflours.com.
