Are there tips for making cupcakes ahead and freezing them (like a week ahead) and not having the liners be all sticky and hard to remove?
I made 300 cupcakes for a wedding once. I made them about 4-5 days ahead of time. I let them cool completely put them in totes with plastic wrap around them before I put on the lids then froze them.
When I took them out I didn't take off the lids or anything and they sat out for about 2 hours. I them opened them up and some of them the wrappers had fallen off of partially and some were perfect. I did notice that the red velvet one's seemed the worse. Most of them the wrappers had fallen off of where as the white and chocolate cake didn't do it as bad.
??? I don't think this probably helps you but hopefully someone else will add some input.
I have another 300 cupcakes due next weekend so I'm hopeing for the best too!!
Hmmm - were your wrappers paper or foil?
paper, Wilton brand regular white ones
How did the wrappers peel back from the ones that looked perfect?
They came off fine! There wasn't any issue with taking them off at all. My issue was them falling off before they should. It wasn't really that big of deal though because they were all in cupcake wrappers so no one could really see them falling off. ??
I was thinking of doing that -getting wrappers for impact. My problem is the cupcake sticking to the wrapper after freezing.
