Has anyone perfected a technique for freezing cupcakes to grab when needed. I made some this weekend and froze them without frosting them. If I feeze small individual containers of frosting will it retain it's normal texture?

I haven't had any problems with freezing frosted cupcakes for about a month at a time. When I freeze frosting separately, I usually have to thin it a little. Still, it's a great convenience!

Think "ice cream cake" yum! It has frozen frosting on it.

I too have frozen frosted cupcakes, though honestly prefer fresh baked if possible.

I actually freeze mine either on a tray and then wrap to avoid any sticking OR I freeze them in individual cup a cake holders that you can purchase online.

The type of frosting used might make a difference. Home made might not freeze as well store bought canisters due to the consistency.

Thank you both for your replies..I was just thinking an investment in a cupcake holder was in order...I know I've seen them somewhere. Was it Gosseberry Patch? Thanks Again!

That is exactly what I was going to recommend--the cup a cake holders. They are perfect for bringing a "safe" cupcake to school or parties!
