How to Make Cupcake Icing

This is one of my favorite cupcake icing recipes. It has a nice peach flavor to the icing, which can be left as it, removed for cupcakes that are not peach flavored or have more added if you want a stronger peach flavor. This is a bakery-style icing, which will give you the icing you are craving for a cupcake. That is why this is a great cupcake icing. If you are making a peach cake, you can spread this icing across the cake. If you are making cupcakes and want to decorative style you will want to use use a pastry bag and star tip.

How to Store Peach Cake Cupcakes

When you make these cupcakes, you can store them at room temperature. When you store cupcakes in the refrigerator, the cake will get stale tasting sooner than it does at room temperature. Make sure that you store these cupcakes covered. As they are exposed to air, the cupcakes will dry out and become unappetizing. Either cover the cupcakes with plastic or use a cupcake holder.

These are a great cupcake to make during the summer months when fresh peaches are in season. If it is out of season when the peach cupcake craving hits, you might be able to find fresh peaches, however, expect to pay more per pound for them.
