We’re always on the hunt for the best ingredients we can source, from seasonal vegetables and fruit to organically raised meats.

I came across Nellie’s Free Range Eggs in the local market, and friends let me tell you they are truly the best on the market. Rich Golden Yolks, that make any recipe so much brighter. They’re dedicated to the humane treatment of hens, so no cramped cages. Hens run free in the sunlight and fresh air and it’s evident in their eggs! They’re Certified Humane, and in addition, they support over 125 small family-run farms in the USA!

We seriously love them, and would never promote a product without heart. Nellie’s free-range eggs shine in any recipe.

The cupcake batter is light and airy from the egg white batter, which creates an almost angel food cake consistency with high peaks. Which stands up to our wicked fresh buttercream raspberry frosting!

Baking Tip: Maintain a steady temperature of 350°F/177°C throughout the entire baking process. While some recipes may require temperature adjustments for higher peaks, this recipe achieves perfection at 350°F/177°C. Keep it cool and consistent for best results.

This buttercream icing is the perfect frosting for these light, lovely cupcakes. It’s so easy to make! 

Add the raspberries to a heavy-bottomed saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the berries break down, about 10 minutes.

Storing Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting: Tips for Freshness

To safely store cupcakes with raspberry buttercream frosting:

  1. Refrigeration: Place the cupcakes in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator to prevent the buttercream from melting and the raspberries from spoiling.

  2. Layering: If storing multiple cupcakes, place parchment paper or wax paper between the layers to prevent the frosting from sticking to the cupcakes above.

  3. Avoid Odors: Keep the cupcakes away from strong-smelling foods in the refrigerator to prevent them from absorbing unwanted odors.

  4. Moisture Control: Ensure the cupcakes are completely cooled before storing to prevent condensation from forming inside the container, which can make the cupcakes soggy.

  5. Storage Duration: Cupcakes with raspberry buttercream frosting can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

By following these storage guidelines, you can keep your cupcakes with raspberry buttercream frosting fresh and delicious for several days
