Room temperature ingredients - For the best result, ensure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before beginning the recipe.
Storing - Store the cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days (they are best within the first 2-3 days).
Freezing - Freeze the cupcakes in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Allow to come to room temperature before consuming.
Baking the cupcakes - To stop the paper cupcake cases from going greasy you can add a small amount of uncooked rice to the base of each of the muffin tin holes. Place the paper cases on top of the rice. The rice will absorb the grease from the butter. This is an optional step. 
Icing the cupcakes - you can ice the cupcakes with buttercream frosting, cream cheese icing, a sprinkle of icing sugar or leave them plain.
