I have some extra cupcakes that I'd like to freeze. I've frozen cakes before that I wrapped well with plastic wrap. Wondering if people freeze cupcakes, how you wrapped or stored them, and how did they taste after. I fond that when I wrap small, individual things like rolls to freeze the plastic wrap seems to loosen over time in the freezer and ice crystals form. Thanks for your help!

They freeze great with or without BC frosting on them. I just put in a zip lock bag or a tupperware-type storage container. Take them out when you want them, they de-frost really quick. I have had them in the freezer for several weeks at least and come out fine.

I've wondered about this too. So the liners don't come off when they defrost? I'm always worried about that.

thanks!

I freeze cupcakes all the time! I actually LOVE frozen cupcakes without frosting when I need a quick snack. icon_wink.gif

I usually put them on a board and wrap them tightly 3 times with plastic.

I don't think freezing causes the wrappers to come off. That seems to be caused by some variation of the particular wrapper, recipe used, whether or not they are allowed to cool in the pan, and probably some other factors I am forgetting, based on other threads on that topic. Next time you have some cuppies, just throw a couple in the freezer and try for yourself.
