Hi, I need to make cupcakes for an event that will be on a Saturday, out of town. We are traveling there Friday morning ( by car, 3 hours away) I plan on making hersheys chocolate cupcakes with a buttercream frosting swirl, with cowboy hat cake toppers made out of modeling chocolate. My question is, can i make these earlier in the week and freeze the frosted cupcakes, and keep the toppers in a cool, dry place? Should i freeze the toppers? If the cupcakes are defrosted friday afternoon, will they still be ok for Saturday morning? This is for family btw, not an order.
Bump- was hoping someone could help me...
i do not know about freezing the cupcakes with the buttercream but i have frozen cupcakes (for 1 week) and had no problems. You just need to wrap them in plastic wrap. How hard would it be to do the icing when you get there? 3 hours in a car is a long time and it could get messy if it is a bumpy ride
I would imagine that you could freeze the cupcakes but I would not decorated the before hand. I would imagine by the time they started to thaw they would probebly be in the melting faze when you got to your destination. I would even decorate them until I got there. just my opionion.
