I have a customer who ordered 3 dozen cupcakes and a giant cupcake.  There are no fillings and used buttercream.  They are already made and she told me due to the blizzard we are having, she is postponing until next weekend.  Is it possible to store these and keep them somewhat fresh? Or, do I scrap it.  Do I charge her for the materials? I just don't know what to do on this one! PLEASE HELP!!!

Do you have a contract of any sort?

No.  I don't.  I haven't thought about doing it for such a small order.  For wedding cakes or any order over $100 I do.

If its just cake and buttercream I would put in the freezer till it firms up wrap with plastic wrap and freeze.  Unthaw on the counter next weekend so any condensation is on the plastic wrap.  It should be good still.  I've done this with buttercream cakes before. Good luck!

I have the cupcakes in a container.  I am almost thinking I will just sell those and remake? But the giant cupcake has a chocolate shell for the "liner".  And is on a board covered in fondant.  Here is what it looks like....

AI was just about to ask this same question!!! I have ten dozen cupcakes for a party tonight that was cancelled for the blizzard. Ugh. They have sprinkles on the top and I am afraid they will bleed onto the frosting and be ugly when they defrost, Need some good answers!

Mine do too! I just sold them by putting them up on facebook.  Try that first.  You would be surprised! I am very picky on the taste so I don't want to take a chance.

ASell them or give them away:(.

But keep a few and store them in the freezer for a week or so. Take them out a day before you would have used them and evaluate the taste, bleeding. This way you know for next time whether to toss them or freeze them.
