I freeze my batter too but was wondering if anyone freezes the baked cakes/cupcakes also? Is it necessary; would it be too moist; please share your experience?

I would never freeze my batter but I do freeze all of my cakes. I have frozen cupcakes before but wasn't as happy with the results due to the moisture effecting the paper wraps. I've never even heard of freezing batter before...interested in why?

I've never frozen batter, but I have froze cupcakes, I double wrap in plastic, wrap in foil, then put in freezer bag. Prolly overkill cuz they never last in my freezer for more then a few days. Then I yell at my husband to not stand staring at the contents of the freezer like a lost puppy and close the door, it will build up condensation on the cake. I never have problems with my wrapers coming off.

I just did another test, I froze a decorated cupcake. Only overnight and unwrapped just to see what would happen. I took it out of the freezer, let it get back to room temp and it tasted fresh. Not that I'd do this regularly but it's good to know that I can.

I have frozen batter before,when i baked it it wasnt as nice ,so i'll never do it again. It was too dense in the middle, almost like it refused to cook,it wasn't fluffy in the middle at all.

i dont' freeze batter, but i ALWAYS freeze baked cakes. (and extra cupcakes if i have them) i always freeze cakes even if it's only for a few hours, it makes them more moist.
