Best Way To Store Gluten-Free Cupcakes

I've been making batches of gluten-free cupcakes for my 4 year old daughter and freezing them. My problem becomes when I try to frost them, it becomes a mess - lots of crumbs and the frosting doesn't stick. If I frost them for eating immediately, most of the time it's fine. Can I frost cupcakes and then freeze them? Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!

I frost cupcakes with a pastry bag. Never any crumbs and you can make them look pretty and professional. B) You can make a small, serviceable, disposable pastry bag by cutting off the corner of a plastic bag and dropping in a piping tip.

Here's what we do. We frost the cupcakes with a pastry bag & tip.. Then I put a toothpick in the center & wrap in a good plastic wrap.(wrap like a tent) I place the wrapped cupcake in a margarine plastic container & freeze. Grankids take these to school ike this & take out when needed. always perfect every time...Make sure you are using a moist batter when making the cupccakes. I use Annalise Roberts recipe. Moist & fluffy even after being froze...

The margarine container also keeps the cupcake from being squashed.....

I made cupcakes the other day and frosted them with Betty Crocker gluten-free frosting and stuck them in the freezer. After they were completely frozen, I covered them as the frosting was hard by then. I did bake them in the baking cup liners. Worked great.

I also used one of Annalise's recipes for Vanilla Cupcakes. I was very pleased with how they turned out in spite of the fact that I had to make up my own brown rice flour mix. Would love to try the Authentic Foods blend she uses but it's nowhere to be found around here and way too expensive to order online (for my taste at least).

I saw a suggestion in the past that you cut the cupcake in half like a layer cake and put the icing in the middle before freezing (no icing on top). It wasn't specifically for gluten-free, but it seems to be worth a try.

Hi Sylvia

I think the vanilla cupcakes are the best! I also blend her flour too! cheaper that way! I bake alot for four celiac so I go through a lot of flour...even the glutens eaters now ask for this cupcake.....

Annalise is a great person & the cookbooks are wonderful....

How coincidental that you posted this now as I just devoured one of the cupcakes that I took out of the freezer before dinner. It is absolutely fantastic and probably the best I've made so there's definitely no problem using that recipe, frosting them and then freezing. And for anyone on a budget or feeding a family, they're really inexpensive to make. I was pleasantly surprised. I guess I hesitated before as I didn't have her flour, which I'd still love to try.

I do have Gluten-Free Baking Classics, which I'd highly recommend to anyone. I've made a couple of the yeast bread recipes and have some of the ingredients measured out to make her Orange Bread tomorrow since the cupcakes turned out so well with the brown rice flour mix.

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I had forgotten that idea about putting the icing in the middle - might encourage her to actually eat the cupcake and not just the icing! I found Annalise's recipes, so I'll be trying those for the next batch.

One thing to do is put a thin layer of icing on the cake. Let it be full of crumbs. Then freeze briefly to harden the icing. Now put a nice thick layer on. All the crumbs are caught in the " crumb layer" and the top layer is nice.

Also there are cupcake corers, which take out a bit of the middle to stuff with frosting, although I don't think I'd want to give up part of the cupcake to do that. King Arthur Flour has one here.

You don't have to freeze the cupcakes solid for it to work either, just enough so they are cold. That's how I frost cakes and cupcakes.

I know this isn't cupcakes, but my kids are always begging me to make them. They prefer them over cupcakes, actually

Cake balls (I hate the name but hey, I'm not that inventive)

I make the cake normally. Then I break it up and mix it with the frosting. Make little two-inch balls out of the new batter. Then, dip them in chocolate. Once the chocolate hardens, storage is easy.

Oooh - that's a great idea for all of the miscellaneous parties at school where I want to bring in something cool for her and the other children - thanks!!

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
