Hello All!

I'm a beginner and only make cakes for family and friends. Somehow I've found myself agreeing to do my SIL's sister's wedding cupcakes, EEK! I've already done a trial batch to show the bride to make sure she knows what she's getting. She really likes them, I'm not 100% so I'll continue to tweek them and practice. I'll be making approx. 120 cupcakes, I plan to bake them and decorate them the day before the wedding (Just a swirl of bc with a chocolate transfer flower and leaf (done earlier in the week)) Is it okay to store them overnight in the fridge, if so, do they need to be in an airtight container? I have been thinking of baking the cupcakes earlier in the week and freezing them, and then decorating the day of, but not sure if I'll have enough time. Any help, ideas, advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa! I just put some cupcakes in the freezer. You can freeze them over night....I just put them in an airtight food storage container and add a layer of plastic wrap between each layer. Rather than putting them in the fridge I recommend the freezer.....they will become moister. Hope this helps!

Thank you Spoonful of Sugar, when you put your cupcakes in the freezer are they already decorated?

I don't decorate them first....just plain cupcakes....I take them out of the freezer and then decorate.....they always turn out moist and not dry

I also freeze my naked cupcakes. Just a tip, though: make sure you let them come to room temp before you frost!

When letting them come to room temp. are there any problems with moisture and the cupcake liner coming off?
Thanks in advance,
Lisa
