HOW TO FREEZE UNFROSTED CUPCAKES
1. Cool completely 2. Individually wrap cupcakes tightly in plastic wrap 3. Store wrapped cupcakes in an airtight bag or container 4. To defrost, unwrap cupcakes and bring to room temperature.
Perfect for the Holiday Season, Birthday Parties and the yearly bake sale. Make several flavors of cupcakes with the same semi homemade chocolate cupcake recipe. Here’s how, add peppermint flavoring to the batter, hollow out the center and add raspberry jam or (this is my all time favorite) hollow out the center and submerge a Lindt truffle in the center. You get a delicious creamy filling without little to no effort plus you have a variety of flavors to choose from!
Don’t forget about the frosting! Creamy, fluffy with lots of chocolate flavor are a few words I would use to describe this Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. Nothing’s better than a moist dark chocolate cake slathered with a creamy dark chocolate frosting. Click here for the recipe—-THE ULTIMATE DARK CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING.
