I have 130 cupcakes to bake for a wedding, and I work full time. I can't take the day off from my full-time job before the wedding to bake the cupcakes, so do you think spreading them out over 2 days in the evenings will be okay?? Or they won't be fresh enough??

Starting baking them and freezing them.Cupcakes take very well to being frozen and thawed...Just take them out and ice and you are set...

Oh wow, I never even thought to freeze them. But will the freezing affect the cupcake liner??

I never had a problem with the paper pulling away. I've frozen cuppies for up to 2 weeks.

Do you ice while still frozen or let them thaw first? Can you make the frosting early too?

I just recently did a wedding where I had to make 150 cupcakes and like you I work full time. I spend the Saturday before the wedding baking and froze all 150 cupcakes. Each dozen I wrapped in saran wrap then covered in tin foil. I defrosted the cupcakes first and they came out SUPER MOIST then I frosted them the day before the wedding.

I got great reviews and all went smooth.

Good Luck
