Bump – kind of curious myself! My family will be making the cookies for our cookie table and I’m sure that at least some of them will want to bake the cookies in advance so they aren’t trying to do it the night before the wedding. It would be good to know if they can survive freezing.

@Snapdragon2804:  I have frozen regular cookies for over 2months and they were just fine & tasty. Not sure about macaroons though.  Cake pops  freeze really well too.

I have a family member who made the cake for her daughter’s wedding.  She made the layers about 10 days early and froze them.  She frosted them after the cakes were defrosted, so I don’t know why it wouldn’t work with cupcakes as well, though I’ve never tried it.

@Snapdragon2804:  Before is fine.  I know they freeze fine b/c my niece had a lot left over from her wedding last year. We were eating them over a month after.  The decor looked as good as the day of.  Just don’t put the sticks in until ready to serve (for room) -or- just serve as cake balls.

 

BTW: they were so good!

@Snapdragon2804:  Trial runs are never a bad thing.  Like you, I’m not sure how the liner would hold up.  Let us know how it goes!

I had a dessert table and people started in on it right after the reception. I think you’re safe as long as it’s placed away from the cake.

My sister makes cakes and she freezes them all the time. The cake isnt going to be as moist but it will still taste great. I make deserts from home ill give you a quick list of this you can do

Cupcakes

chocolate covered pretzel sticks

chocolate covered oreos

chocolate coverd strawberries

Rice crispies treats (can also be chocolate covered)

cake pops

candied apples/ chocolate covered apples

decorated sugar cookies

chocolate lollipops (made with molds)

Hope this helps! Laughing

@Snapdragon2804:  The only problem with freezing the cake pops is that they will contract & then swell again, possibly cracking the candy coating. I haven’t done it with cake, but I have frozen truffles that were chocolate coated and this happened. If you do any accent color decorating, I would wait until after they’ve defrosted because otherwise the colors may run together when condensation builds. 

Cakes & cookies freeze fine.

Actually, freezing cake, properly wrapped, will be very moist. Ditto on freezing cake pops. The chocolate will most likely crack when they defrost. Macaron shells freeze well. You can fill them a day or so ahead of time since they need that time to develop flavor and proper texture. Most other cookies will freeze well also.
