Freezing cupcakes?? - Page 2

post #16 of 26

Alice, I think you should try freezing with your own specific cupcake to see if you like the results with your own recipe.  I wouldn't think of it as a waste of product, but an important research to see if it will work for you.  Better to lose a couple of cupcakes with your research and make sure you like the results.  Just freeze a couple of extras next time you bake.

I know this post is old but for those of us searching tips today - I frosted and froze my cupcakes in plastic cupcake trays and took them out two weeks later - I let them thaw in the containers and the buttercream and cupcakes were as good as fresh. If you don't have containers - place them on a tray and let them freeze so they get hard and then add to a ziploc but take them out when thawing.

when you say "Plastic bag", are you just using a trash bag???

Generally I use a ziplock bag/bread bag/plastic food storage bag since I am only dealing with a dozen or so.

Can you tell me what type of "plastic" cupcake container you used for freezing?

post #21 of 26

I have used Rubbermaid or Tupperware containers, any type of food storage container.  But if I was to do a lot of cupcakes I would use any rigid storage container, like a storage tub if I had room in the freezer for it.  I am guessing luciescakes is referring to the clear plastic containers that have molded spots for the cupcakes, like what you get muffins and cupcakes in at grocery stores.

Yes  am talking about Ziploc bags and the plastic trays I have are the ones you would buy cupcakes in at the grocery store.

I understand freezing them, but how do you put a cupcake in an upside down cup?  is the cup turned over and put over the cupcake?

Yes.

I am brand new to this web site and would like some advice please!

Can someone kindly share a fail proof method of thawing cupcakes with their pretty cupcake cakes not peeling away from the cupcake please? I use ziplock bags. Timing must be crucial I am guessing? Can I ice them once fully thawed?

Also- a strange question...does it matter if I am thawing a vanilla cupcake or a red velvet?

Thank you all! icon_smile.gif

I have frozen them with and without icing.  Have iced them frozen and thawed.  There are a lot of guesses on the problem of the liners separating from the cupcake.  I find the best way to search cake central is to go to google.    For example type in        cupcake liners separating cake central     and a bunch of relevant threads from cake central come up.  Are you cooling your cuppies in the pan or out?  That seems to be part of the problem.  I haven't found that how I freeze or thaw makes them separate.  Some people say to thaw in the container so then any frost is on the outside of the bag and not on the cupcake.  I haven't found a difference if freezing with different types of cake or cupcakes.
