    Just made these with all organic ingredients. Did make them with a different frosting, but they were a hit at our daughter’s birthday party! Thank you!

    I’m making these for my daughter’s birthday treat for her class on Tuesday. They are in the oven now and going to frost them tomorrow. Should I keep them in the refrigerator until Tuesday morning?
