I’m so NOT a baker, but I’m baking cupcakes for my FI’s birthday tomorrow. I’m not planning to frost them until tomorrow morning.
What should I do with them tonight? Refrigerate? Can I just cover them with aluminum foil and leave them out overnight? Put them in plastic bags?
I don’t want them to dry out.

I’m not much of a baker either, but I would probably store them in an airtight container overnight.

do not refrigerate!!!
but keep them in an air tight container on the counter (or saran wrap really well)
Refrigeration draws out the moisture in baked goods causing them to dry out and go stale faster.

Put them in an airtight container. I would put them in the fridge overnight. If they are in an airtight container they shouldn’t dry out too much in a few hours, and they are waaaay easier to frost when they are chilled. Pretty much any professional bakery is going to keep cupcakes/cakes in a cooler or freezer until you purchase them, so like I said a few hours over night shouldn’t dry out a cupcake that badly.

Can you post a picture when you finish frosting them up? So I can lick the computer screen? LOL

You just have to store them in an airtight container. You don’t have to refrigerate them, but you can if you want. I wouldn’t freeze them, since you’re taking them out tomorrow.
