I had an order for cupcakes that I made last night and I have a ton of left overs. I was thinking of freezing them until Oct 10 for Thanksgiving.

Is this too long in the freezer?
What is the best way to wrap them? Just put them in saran wrap and then in a ziplock?

Any help would be great, thanks

Hi there I need to know this question too, I think if you can freeze other cakes I dont see why you cant freeze cupcakes, but I would rather know from one of the experts on here though xx

I have frozen cupcakes for a month in my plastic tupperware container and they tasted just fine after they thawed out.

Freezing stops time, I have had cupcakes in my freezer for as long as 3 months and they were fine. I freeze in my cupcake holder, if I know that I won't need it. I also have a couple extra 12 cup muffin tins, they fit perfectly in a 2 gallon ziploc. Just cover the top with wax paper and slide in. I don't even defrost before icing, just remove from the freezer and ice them, they come out great.

Great thread! I was wondering the same thing. I have never frozen a cuppie before but I'd like to start shipping cuppies. I've heard that freezing them makes them ship better.

I know that my comment was a little off bad icon_redface.gif
