I need some advice - I've baked Cosmopolitan and Mojito cupcakes right now. Brushed with rum and cointreau whilst hot. Now on the rack cooling down. I will pipe the frosting tomorrow, in about 14 hours and serve them in approximately 17-18 hours. Can I just leave them on my counter wrapped in saran wrap or should I freeze them? They are for a wedding tasting tomorrow and I just wish everything to be perfect! . Any opinions are appreciated!
Any advice, guesses, opinions? Please, pretty please?
Do you have any Tupperware or plastic containers you can put them in before you put the icing on? I would be too scared to just leave them with plastic wrap, but that is just me. It sounds like you put a lot of work into the cupcakes and I would hate to see them dry out.
awatterson - thanks for your input! I've left them in the cupcake pan and wrapped it in 4 layers of saran - I think I will put the pan in a plastic bag and then freeze them and hope that will keep them moist. Will put the icing on tomorrow when they have thawed
It's a tasting with a "jet-set" gay couple and I so want this order. And if I get it it will probably generate more orders so I really want them to love my cuppies
I think that the 4 layers would be fine. I was thinking that it was just 1 layer laid on top. I will cross my fingers that you get the order. Let us know how it goes!
They freezed and thawed well and the couple loved them! And I was also asked to do there flowers for the wedding since I do that as well
In school the rule was if it is for within 24 hours, keep it on the counter. More than that, freeze it.
Congratulations! That is AWESOME!
Thank you for your good advices!
No I'm off to drink champagne with my husband - first day of vacation!
Egensinning-Did you unwrap the cupcakes right when you took them out of the freezer? Or did you let them thaw out first, then unwrap? I know when I freeze my cakes, I let them thaw first. I've heard different things with cupcakes though.
