Hi, I know this has been asked before. I have an order for 250 cupcakes. Can I bake them on Wednesday night or Thursday and start to decorate and finish on Friday for a Sunday wedding. I may be going out of town on Saturday and want to have everything done. Would they stay fresher in a plastic container versus a box? Thanks for your help.
I always bake early and freeze everything. Then I thaw them in the fridge. I keep them in a plastic container as well.
I think your time line is fine. They will still stay very fresh.
How does your cake recipe stand up over 4-5 days. Does it taste just as fresh and good on day 4 or 5 as day 1?
I use doctored cake mix. I baked an order (about 3 doz) on a Wed & they were served on a Sat. Normally I bake the day before, so i really held my breath...but she said everyone raved about them! I ate some I had left at home and they tasted good. They were not frozen-I was too worried about the temp/moisture changes that would cause & the effect on the liners. I just had them loosely covered at room temp. Good luck-
You shouldn't keep cake in a plastic container as they don't let the air circulate. They won't keep well without air, surprisingly. I'd go for a box. Hence why all the professionals use cardboard boxes to sell/transport cakes.
