Yes, they will come out just fine! My baker insisted hers is actually more moist when she freezes it.

I freeze cupcakes all the time, it’s no big deal.  You can’t decorate hot cupcakes because the icing will melt off.

I have worked as a pastry chef. It is standard to freeze cakes and cupcakes. I promise, they will be no worse after a trip to the freezer (so as long as they are good going in :), and usually it improves their texture.

We freeze cupcakes, muffins, cookies, etc all the time.  They taste just fine and often better!

IMO, they actually turn out better by freezing them than her making them the night before and leaving them at room tempature.

We made cupcakes ahead of time and froze them for our wedding- they tasted great on the day! 🙂

Totally do-able.  We do it often.

Hey guys, I want to do this for our rehearsal dinner–how do you do it? Make a batch, let them cool, put them in…freezer bags? Plastic wrap?

And then how do you ice them–while they are still frozen, or do you have to let them defrost first?

Thanks!!!

You can freeze cupcakes?!?!  I’m so going to do this when I make too many red velvet cupcakes to eat at one time.  Woohoo!  I learned something new today, too!
