I have just made the cupcakes I need to send into my daughter's class on Monday. I am planning on putting snowmen on top.

Obviously they will need to be frozen and my original intention was to freeze them now and decorate them when I take them out on Sunday night. I just realized that I have a houseful of people on Sunday night so now I'm wondering if I could decorate them today and freeze them decorated?

Each cupcake will be individually bagged. Any suggestions on the defrosting would be appreciated too?

Thanks!

I would freeze first. If you freeze already decorated you run the risk of the decorations/frosting colors bleeding together as they thaw. Maybe they'd be ok but it would really suck to do all the work and then see it get wasted or not turn out right. Good luck!
