How to Warm Up the Mini Cakes As A Leftover Snack?

Oven (recommended method): Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Heat muffins until warm or lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.

Microwave (quick method): Alternatively, you can reheat the muffins in the microwave (one at a time). Cook in the microwave at 50% power until slightly warm, about 45 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds, depending on the power of your microwave.

I recommend 30 second intervals, this way you can avoid overcooking the cupcakes in the microwave which will cause them to become hard.

How to Store These Mini Cakes?

Before storing, be sure to let the cupcakes cool completely on a wire rack.

Transfer them to an airtight container lined with a sheet of paper towels.

Arrange them in a single layer and cover the top with another sheet of paper towels before sealing the container with an airtight lid.

Tip: Paper towels will absorb excess moisture from the muffins and allow them to stay fresher for longer.

You can store them at room temperature for 3-4 days.

Alternatively, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Can These Lemon Pies Be Frozen?


You can freeze for 2-3 months in your favorite freezer containers or ziplock freezer bags.

Let the mini cakes come to room temperature before enjoying them.
