How to Store
Store frosted cupcakes in refrigerator up to 2 days before serving.
How to Crush Candy Canes
You want to crush the candy to about a medium size. Place candy canes in a small resealable plastic bag and crush with your hands. The crushed candy inside the cupcakes melts to give a peppermint flavour and the candy on top provides a nice crunch.
