Hey, first off, sorry if i posted this in the wrong section. I didn't really think i could put it anywhere else.
But on to my question!
I am doing a small event of about 100 people. I want to do a couple things: Cupcakes, cookies, and a small treat.
I was wondering, i know for the cookies i can precut and freeze and bake right out of the freezer.
The treats need to be made a day or two ahead ,but they shoudln't be to hard.. just some homemade marshmallow squares with graham crackers and some chocolate ontop.
But here's my question, can i make the cupcakes ahead of time and freeze them? I have made many cakes and frozen them weeks in advance with no problems. But i have never baked cupcakes and frozen them ahead of time.
Does anyone have bad experiences doing this? I am going to be making chocolate fudge cupcakes(it is the grooms fudge cake recipe on wilton.com) with a chocolate ganache icing and a small garnish of chocolate plastic. I will do the ganache and chocolate plastic last of course and fresh.. but i'm curious about the cakes? Also how many cupcakes do you think i should make?
It is going to be an event with about 100 people in about 2 months. Is it to early to make the cupcakes now and freeze? If so what would be a good time to do them ahead so they still stay fresh... Sorry about all the questions.
Cupcakes don't hold up as well. they need to be carefully wrapped and sealed air tight. Personally, I don't freeze them longer that 2-3 weeks.
yea no longer than 3 weeks and make sure they are sealed tight...let them thaw and taste one to make sure they are still good.. i would thaw night before...
