downer Hello everyone!

I need to make 30 birthday cupcakes for my friend, and have to make and deliver it two days before the party since I cannot make it to the party.
My friend really want me to make the cupcakes, but I’m worried that the cupcakes may be dry or soggy on the day.

Will I be able to freeze the decorated cupcakes and have my friend store them in her fridge, or should I just deliver it room temp and have her store them in air tight container?

I’m planning to use Italian Buttercream for frosting.

The date is coming up, and I’ll really appreciate for everyone’s advice.

Thank you!!

I have make lots of cupcakes, decorated them and froze them in airtight containers for a few days with no problems.  I sometimes like to get things
done at least a day in advance so that I can avert any last minute disasters!  Good Luck!

Thank you for your reply!

I’m relieved to know that the cupcakes can be made and decorated in advance.

Thanks again!

What kind of flowers are you using… fondant, gumpaste, royal icing?  If so, I would not put them on the cupcakes before freezing - add them just before serving.  They won’t hold up well to all the moisture they’ll be exposed to when freezing/thawing.

Patrincia,

Thank you for your advise.
I actually tried one out with my gumpaste flower, and did find out that they melt!
I will put them right before serving. Thanks a lot!

You know, I think the single most important thing I have learned from this forum is:
“When in doubt, try it out in advance.” Good work!

Bungalow Barbara,

Thanks for your reply.
That is really true.  I am trying out a few ways, and I feel that I’ll be okay.
