What’s the Best Way to Make Cupcakes Ahead?

(Image credit: Tessa Huff)

Q: I’m having my daughter’s birthday party soon. I often spend a ton of time decorating the cakes and cupcakes, so I want to do some of the work beforehand. Is it better to freeze the cake batter and bake them closer to the party? Or freeze the already-baked cupcakes and cake, and thaw them later on? Does one taste better?

Does it matter if there is baking soda/powder in them?
