So it turns out that 18 dozen cupcakes is a lot of cupcakes! Who knew? I baked and baked the second half of last week and ended up with 7 varieties of the little cakes for a women’s event at our church on Saturday morning.
(Check out this cupcake post for frosting tips & recipes.)
Little labels like this one printed on cardstock helped clear up any flavor confusion for event guests. (This was another flavor that I didn’t capture in a picture. They were all chocolate with mocha frosting and brown & white sprinkles. Probably my favorite flavor.)
Someone asked me yesterday if I’ll be making cupcakes again any time soon. My answer was yes, but probably not 18 dozen. When I took on the challenge, I had no idea how I would do it exactly, but I thought I could figure it out. I was so glad that the ladies heading up the event at the church trusted that I could actually produce something decent, and for the women who so sweetly washed all my dishes! And for Pete who ran to the store when I ran out of flavoring and powdered sugar. And for the girls who played with Ella for hours on Friday night while I was decorating and Saturday morning during the event. Goodness, what a team! It was a ton of fun, honestly, and it really is a great feeling knowing that I made over 210 cupcakes. Yay.
