OK   I need advice  I do royal icing cookies and buttercream cupcakes for events   I have a large (150-200) event coming up mid July   I have the cookies all done and frozen   I was expecting to start on cupcakes to get them all done and frozen then thaw filll buttercream cing and decorate the day before the party  Now I find out the freezer is not available!     My question --- if I bake these cupcakes thr week before- put them in containers and saran wrap them and just leave out will they stay fresh for a whole week before I get to filling and decorating? --- or should I take all the cookies out of where I have them frozen and let THEM just sit in the containers all saran wrapped for a month and do the cupcakes NOW and freeze them NOW   HElp    advice please!!!   thanks!!!!!   Terri

idk -- i would make the cupcakes last minute but i'm not a big cupcaker -- i just worry about the wrappers coming off after freezing so you don't want to listen to me -- but you could do a test on it for your own peace of mind too --

but i saw a thing the other day where they put uncooked rice in the bottom of the cupcake pan then the muffin wrapper doesn't absorb the grease -- so i'm good for something --

best to you hibiscus

That’s an old tip …. Been around for at least several years
