Wow, so much less messy that the normal way, plus since I had three flavors it was easy to put a sliver of each flavor up right so when they baked the flavors are all over the cake inside of just layered bottom to top, they super cute ontop, almost ashame to cover w/ frosting!

I really like this!

oh and they tasted great, they are still a tad warm from the oven, so I guess the real test is the next day, but I think they will be fine

I had made two cakes this week ( i dont normally do that) and I also needed to make cupcakes tonight, so from the cake last week and this week I froze the left over batter, I had heard that it bakes up just fine (sounds weird to think about frozen batter to me, but I heard it worked and I needed some extra help, did not want to mix up more cake mix for a third time in a week!)

I had made three cake flavors so had three tubs of frozen batter, I just took a spoon and scooped the frozen batter into a cupcake liner b/c it's frozen it does not glop anywhere!!! (I am a big time glopper)
it was so not messy that I took a smaller spoon and scopped out each flavor and put them all in one liner (vanilla, strawberry and chocolate - like a Neapolitan) - they baked up fluffy and light and not funny tasting or weird looking.

I thought the frozen batter would be hard to scoop, but it does not freeze solid, easier to scoop than most icecream (hate when you cant get the scoop in the icecream and you have to let it sit for a while.. and it feels like forever )

anyways this post was just another endorsement for using frozen batter for cupcakes!
Plus an advantage for us that have to bake after work and after the kids and such are bothered with you can mix up the batters one day when nothing is going on and you know you'll need it soon and then on bake day just scoop and bake

So, do you need to thaw the batter, or can you bake straight from the freezer?

Interesting! Was this a scratch or a mix batter? Would it even matter?

Oh, yes, thank you for sharing this. This is such a great idea. I, too, would like to know if it matters if the cake mix is from a box or if it is scratch or if it matters.

I went straight from frozen to liner, no thawing.

My batter was a box mix that was doctored w/ an extender recipe that had sourcream (no pudding as I used one of the mixed that says on the lable they use pudding mix in their recipe - I think that might be pillsbury, not 100% sure)

as far as bake temps nad time, I suck at that.. so I picked picked 350 and started at 17 mins and check every 2 minutes, I had to check them a few times (did not note how many) but I have a funky oven so who knows what the temp was inside! I just waited till they looked done, not brown on top (I have a habit over over baking) and had a lil spring to them when touched.

Very interesting! Thanks for the info. I'll definitely be trying this before the big graduation season which happens to coincide with my oral surgery. bleh.

This sounds so awesome! I will be baking some mini smash cakes tonight, and was going to refrigerate the leftover batter to make cupcakes tomorrow, but I think I am going to freeze the batter instead! Thanks so much!!!!

I did this a couple weeks ago with 2 or 3 week old frozen batter. Works perfectly and definately a time saver!!

I like the idea of the Neopolitan!!

How interesting! I guess we should thaw before baking?
