    During the holidays, we have many parties come in and I've been experimenting and switching up my mini pastries so I do not get bored.   I was just wondering if I was to prepare a baked good such as cinnamon buns ahead of time would it be better to proof them before or after they were frozen for future use?

    You want to make up your cinnamon buns, but don't proof them. Freeze them right away, then thaw and proof as needed.
