I need to make 250 standard-sized wedding cupcakes. They want vanilla with raspberry preserve filling.

1. Should I add preserve filling before or after freezing?

2. How much preserves should I plan to get to fill all of those?

you need to test your ideas so they will be accurate for your recipes and equipment -- and it all depends on how much filling you put in each one as to how much you will need -- make up a half recipe fill and freeze some then don't fill the others and test how you like the results filling after freezing -- me i would work it so they would freeze & thaw well already filled -- because after freezing i don't like to do anything but ice & decorate -- there's no wrong way -- just the way that works best for you --

another question you might consider is -- fill before or after baking --

what is preserve filling? like jelly preserves? or sleeve filling? i have a friend that swirls sleeve filling in her cake before baking -- i don't usually do that but it's certainly an option -- then check how it thaws out after freezing too of course if you try it --
