Regarding nut allergies, we have some recipes that are not made with nuts, but all cupcakes are made in an environment where nuts are present, so we cannot guarantee that our cupcakes are 100% nut free.

Cupcakes will stay moist and tasty for a couple of days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature, but we are certain they will be gobbled up long before that as they then to be irresistible! Do not store them in the fridge or freeze them as this tends to dry cupcakes out horribly.
