Hi there, I'm just curious if anyone has ever decorated a cake with buttercream and placed it in a box and froze it. Did it turn out well? Also, did you wrap your box with anything? I need to do several dozen cupcakes for the Halloween season and I wanted to do them all ahead of time seeing that they will all be due on Halloween. Please advise.
Yes, you can freeze cakes and cupcakes with buttercream decorations, I would not keep it in the freezer for more than 4 weeks. Some colors may fade, so I would freeze cupcakes with white icing and airbrush later. Or you can take a chance, I think yellow should be ok, not sure about bright orange.
Thank you for the advice. I think I may get started this weekend.
