Looking for some expert opinions.   My daughter is having a party on Sunday.  Today is Thursday.  I have frozen cupcakes in the past and they have been fine.  With just three days, I'm not quite sure which will be best. 


Would you:

A.  Bake, frost and freeze for Sunday

B.  Bake, freeze and then frost later

C.  Bake and put in fridge with frosting.

D.  Bake and put in fridge without frosting.

E.  Other.


I am doing red velvet and a smores cupcake that is a graham cracker base with a marshmallow filling.   I haven't made either of these before, so I don't know how they will act.

AI vote for B! Get the baking part out of the way, make up a fresh batch of your frosting and frost the night before or morning of. Freezing the cupcakes will not only save you time but make the cupcakes better. Good luck!

Thank you!  I appreciate your response.  Graham cupcakes for s'mores are in the oven.

One of the wonderful side benefits to posting on CC - we get way more (ideas, suggestions and help) than we originally expected.

And the really interesting thing is that A, B, C, D, E (and all of the possible variations included in E) are all good ideas.   I've done all of them


but since this is supposed to help someone make up their mind what to do.........hmmmmmmmmm

how about just making them tomorrow and letting them sit out overnight.  Hay that's an "E" answer.

I've done 'B' and it's worked perfectly for me :)

AI don't think I'd consider any option other than B based on what you're making. Wouldn't want any of that to get soggy.
