How far in advance can you make cupcakes?

I'd feel great about doing them a couple of days in advance. Good heavy, sugary icing helps them keep longer. Keep covered at room temp. You can also freeze unfrosted cupcakes. Defrost and ice before serving.

One day is ideal, two days is okay.

yeah, I wouldn't go beyond two days. If you do, freeze them.

I agree, 2 days. No more. When cool, cover with wax paper and wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap so they don't go stale. Frost or ice on the day you will eat them.
