How long can I keep decorated cupcakes at room temperature with buttercream or fondant? And if I store them in the refrigerator, when I put them out will they be the same?

Iced cupcakes can be stored at room temperature a day or two, if made from scratch with a recipe.  When made from a cake mix, they'll keep an extra day or two.  In the refrigerator, buttercream iced cupcakes should keep 4-5 days.  However you store them, be sure to wrap them air tight.
