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!!

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
