  1. Save time during the holidays! Freeze these cupcakes in an airtight freezer container up to 2 months. Decorate the frozen cupcakes; they'll thaw while you're decorating.
  2. Bake these festive cupcakes in holiday-themed baking cups for even more holiday spirit!
  3. 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.
