In two weeks, I have three different orders for cupcakes for baby showers and such. Normally I bake cupcakes the day before, but if I can freeze them it would be so much easier. What is the best way to freeze cupcakes and what is the best way to defrost them without the liners pulling away.

Use plastic wrap and a lot of it them put them in an air tight container and freeze.

You can alway use the plastic cupcake containers if you aren't going to freeze them for longer than a few days. But I recommend the first. I haven't had any problems with the liners pulling away.

good luck

I agree. Also, when you pull them out of the freezer, take them out of the container and unwrap the plastic wrap and let them defrost. If you don't too much moisture can build up and you might have problems with the cupcake wrappers loosening. Just my experience.

I also unwrap them before they defrost. I didn't think to say that.

I uses grease proof paper and an air tight container for mine.

I take the lid off when I take them out of the freezer so no moisture builds up in the container while they defrost icon_smile.gif

I am also going to have to do this. I was wondering if anyone knew how this would work - I was going to bake my cupcakes in plain white liners & freeze. Then after thawing I want to put blue foil wrappers on them. Would that work or would the blue liners look silly? I just worry that they won't be snug against the cake. I don't want to waste time & ingredients if it won't work. The reason Im thinking of doing this is because I'm running out of time & the foil wrappers aren't getting ordered until Saturday.

Thanks for any input!

I think it will depend on the size of the foil cases. I have used several now and they seem to be quite straight and snug so it could work, but im not sure. Im sure it will work if your cases are wroughly the same size. icon_smile.gif

Do you plastic wrap the cupcakes individually before putting them in the freezer?

I've frozen cupcakes before and the wrappers came loose and opened up while they were in the freezer!! Very upsetting! Any reasons why?
