So I know that I am a little late getting this posted but it has been incredibly busy around here lately and I just haven’t found the time to blog. Any way enough excuses lets get on with it.
Many of you may or may not know, but I do a little cake baking on the side. So this Valentines day I got an order for six dozen cup cakes for some school valentines parties. I was super thrilled to be able to bake for the kids and also thrilled for a chance to try out an idea I found over on the Bakerella blog. For those of you who do not know Bakerella, I highly recommend checking out her blog, it is full of fantastic ideas and easy to follow tutorials. I used her Ganache and Buttercream frosting recipe for these cupcakes, and absolutely loved them. I will definitely be using both again.
I ended up making twelve dozen cupcakes, that is a lot of cupcakes. After I got done I never wanted to see another cupcake. However time heals all wounds and I think I could look at a cupcake again. I made some of the cupcakes strawberry cake (a box mix I had on hand) and some of them angel food cake (more friendly to the waste line for me to take to work).
Here are a few photos of my cupcake experience:
My customer was very happy with the way they turned out. As well my co-workers found them to be quite tasty.
