- Wedding: February 2013
So the background is that I’m planning on DIY-ing my wedding cupcakes. My fiance is in charge of making and decorating the stand, and letting me know how he wants the cupcakes decorated, but it’ll be me, my Maid/Matron of Honor, and my sister all sleeping over for a solid weekend and baking them. =) ‘Course, he’s welcome to help if he wants, but I’m hoping to make it a sort-of girls’ night in!
Anyways, so I’ve read that people have made their cupcakes a couple weeks in advance and froze them, and I tested it out on some cupcakes I made at home and the only problem I’ve noticed is that dragees/Skor bits, etc. will "melt" a little in the freezer (doesn’t make any sense, I know, but it’s what happened!). However, recently I’ve been thinking of filling the cupcakes with icing/ganache/etc. and then topping them with fondant, because my fiance really likes the "smooth" look of it. I know that you’re not supposed to refrigerate fondant because it weeps, but can you freeze it?
If not, I think we’ll probably just make the cupcakes a week or two in advance and fill them cupcakes with something that doesn’t need to be refrigerated (but won’t be ruined by freezing), freeze them until the day before, and then decorate them all then, pack them up, and have them all ready to go the day of. Would that work?
