I have a chocolate cake order for Saturday, and chocolate mini cupcakes for Tuesday. If I make everything tomorrow, should I freeze the mini cupcakes for Tuesday, or can I just put them in the fridge? Will they be okay in the fridge? If I put them in the freezer, won't they get condensation all over them and get soggy once I thaw them out?

Thanks for the advice!

I hope I'm not to late for answering this. I would personally put them in the freezer. Freezers are designed to lock in moisture where fridges slowly pull moisture out of items.

Wrap them in saran & then place them in a bag & "squeeze" as much air out as possible. Pop them in the freezer & thaw them in the saran for a few hours before you need them. I like to unwrap mine to "air dry" for about 30 min before icing.

I like to wrap them in saran wrap and put them into a ziplock and before it's completely zipped shut I take a straw and suck as much air out as I can. Silly, I know, but it makes me feel like more air is out than when I "squish" the air out.

If I'm freezing for more than a few days I additionally wrap them in alum. foil before putting in the bag, but for such a short period you'll be ok w/out it
