I made these for a charity auction and was told they (3 dozen) were gone in 5 minutes. We kept a dozen at home and they were gone in less time than that :) I recommend you make the cupcakes the day before you need them and store them in the fridge. Then make the buttercream the day of the event, I had a hard time frosting them with the icing made the day before but not with the fresh batch.
Oh and take my word, make an extra batch than you think you need :) Go here for the recipe and enjoy!
