I have had quite a bit of baking in the last two weeks which has turned out to be fun and challenging! Last Saturday, I had an order for three dozen mini cupcakes, but each dozen was a different flavor. Red velvet, chocolate-chocolate, and strawberry...all three are favorites of mine! Since one batch of batter makes forty-eight mini cupcakes I ended up with A LOT of extra cupcakes....my husband and Jed love when that happens:) I even posted on Facebook that I had extras and for friends to stop by and get some if they wanted. I had four or five eager takers!
Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of the chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting, but here are the other two as finished products.
This past weekend I was challenged with my first cake order! The request was for three angel food cakes. I did quite a bit of research and some experimenting before tackling the actual three cakes that would be the final products. This is how the final process went (for the most part)....
I am hoping to have the photos of the decorated cakes for you sometime next week....they were for a French farmhouse themed baby shower. (so fun, right!?)
I usually make a weekly trek to Costco, and this week my husband and Jed were with me when I went. Roaming up and down each aisle is one of my favorite things to do, and on a previous trip I had seen two cake stands that were very cute. I thought they would be great for displaying cupcakes! I just happened to "wander" down that same aisle with Kyle and Jed and, what do you know, there were the two cute cake stands. BUT wait....on my previous visit I saw that they came in white, but that night they had one box that had the two cake stands in a milky green color!!! That made me even more excited and the next thing I knew, the box was in out cart and Kyle said, "Well, that's one thing I can mark off your Valentine list." WOOOHOOOO!!! So here is a photo of my new favorite cupcake displays.
