Scenario: In October I am making cupcakes for a wedding in Texas (300 cupcakes with buttercream frosting). I am going to make all the fondant decorations a month in advance to get them done and out of the way. For those of you who've done this size order before I have a few questions:
1. Should I bake/freeze the cupcakes before hand in order to save myself time? How long will they last in the freezer? When should I thaw them out to frost?
2. I will have to transport them in my car and it will potentially be hot outside. I already have the boxes/cupcake inserts....but should I put them into a cooler with ice packs to ride in the car? I am paranoid they will melt on the way to the reception. (it's 30 minutes away).
