How long do cupcakes stay fresh?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I do not bake for profit. I might like to one day. Recently, people have been telling me on a very regular basis that I am in the wrong business. Getting paid for doing something I love?!?!?! Thats not a concept I am familiar with at this time. Anyway..... with that said....
Can I freeze cupcakes? If so, for how long? Does the frosting freeze as well? If not, how long is it good in the fridge?
If anyone can help me, please do. I have been bit by the baking/decorating bug/fairy/muse lately and I want to be able to bake on the weekends and share them with my co-workers and friends on Monday, but, id like it to be as fresh as possible.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Jessica,

I know you can freeze them if you wrap them securely. Like put in ziplock bag and then put cling wrap around them. I'm not sure how long you could freeze them for but probably the same as a cake. HTH icon_biggrin.gif

I freeze cupcakes all the time. I simply place them in a old muffin tin or on a sturdy piece of cardboard, cover with wax paper and slide into a 2 gallon ziploc. I've had cupcakes in my freezer like this for as long as 3 months and they were great! Good luck!

I know some ladies in our cupcake thread freeze theirs all the time. Wrap each in plastic wrap tightly, and you can put a bunch of those into a gallon ziplock. As long as they are secured and air tight, they should last you a while!

The answer to your question is yes you can freeze cupcakes as long as they are well wrapped (thanks vww104 for the tip!). With regards to defrosting, it takes less than half an hour for them to defrost depending on cake flavour and according to my clients they taste very fresh!
