When I defrost my cupcakes (or muffins, for that matter), they're all sticky. They still taste great, but they don't have that dry top. Is there a way to defrost them so they won't get sticky? Do they need to be tightly covered or defrosted in the fridge? I'm concerned because I just froze a bunch of 4" cakes for a class I'm teaching next week for our church's youth and I don't know what the icing will do if I try to put it on a sticky cake.

I'm wondering, too. Also, if I put them in a cake keeper, the tops get sticky. Help!

I worked at the bakery at WalMart for years, and our cupcakes came in frozen and had to be defrosted. The tops were kinda sticky. I can promise you the buttercream stuck icon_smile.gif I did over 1000 cupcakes a day, and never had any problems with the icing not sticking. Just make sure they're defrosted all the way before icing.

Mine are like that too and I can assure you that the icing WILL stick.
