question: frozen cupcakes?????

has anyone here ever made cupcakes ahead of time...froze them...and thawed and decorated the day before the party?????

don't even know if it's feasible...and i haven't had a chance to swagbuck it yet

damn tyler and his allergies...i have to make him special cupcakes for alyssa's party :roll:

nah..just kidding...i really don't mind just that we are going to be tight on time this year cause we are so busy...plus i think her birthday is wed. so i'll be sending some into school and then we are having her party the sunday after......thinking about making a big batch on tuesday and just freezing some for sunday (if it will turn out) ....i guess i can always try it and see Smile

I've never actually done it but I know people who have, especially with allergies. I know someone who keeps a stash in their freezer to take to parties where her kid can't eat the regular cake.

I made Ms cake a few days early last year and just kept them in the fridge for a few days before assmbling and decorating.

I have never done it with cupcakes, but I have done it with muffins and they turned out fine.

Yes, you can. I would freeze them first, then wrap them in plastic wrap, then foil and stick them back in the freezer. Make sure they are wrapped tightly and everything is covered. Should be just fine.

I just took some out of the freezer last night. I'll go taste one for you. Smile

ETA: DELISH!!!! These are frosted too (just with white frosting). I froze them first, then used the vacuum sealer to seal them before throwing them in the freezer. I took them out of the bag last night and thawed them in a container on the counter.

My gma worked in a bakery for years and that's how they did all their custom cakes! I've frozen all cakes and cupcakes ever since she told me before icing them. It makes it WAY easier to ice, less crumby mess, and they should be really moist as well! Follow that advice from my gma, but not leaving the eggs on the counter for 3 days before making the cake advice lol!

Ditto what Jules said. My girlfriend freezes and then thaws all of her cakes before frosting them. It really does make them more moist

I've done them frosted too. I froze a bunch of left-over cupcakes from DJ's party - complete with frosting, decorations etc and they defrosted fine a few weeks later.

My BFF does this too, her oldest has peanut allergies, so almost all bakery cakes are off limits for him so she brings a cupcake from home. She's never had a problem with them Smile

this is good info! A friend of mine made her DS's cupcakes ahead of time and froze them...they were the driest things EVER! I always thought that freezing them was the culprit, but after reading all of the responses, now I wonder if it was just her baking. LOL.
