Shane and I have been talking about me starting a cupcake business for a while now. Nothing crazy...not Cup Cake Wars or anything. :) But I wanted to try out a bunch of recipes and see what people thought before I started selling them to people. Which brings me to the other reason these past few days have been crazy. Since Colie was here she wanted to be here for the tasting. After getting my awesome new mixer, I spent Saturday night and all day Sunday making cupcakes. Big cupcakes and little cupcakes. And way too many to finish in that amount of time!
A whole table full of cupcakes
Just thought this looked cool
Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting
White Chocolate Rasberry....white chocolate cake, raspberry filling and a white chocolate cream cheese frosting
Lemon Raspberry...a butter cake with lemon added, raspberry filling and a lemon frosting
Chocolate Peanut Butter Twist...chocolate and peanut butter swirled cake, and chocolate and peanut butter swirled frosting with a baby reeses cup on top
Triple Chocolate...Chocolate cake, chocolate cream cheese frosting with chocolate chips on top
Pink Champagne Cupcakes
Vanilla Cupcakes with a royal icing flower on top
This one didn't turn out like it was supposed to. Its a S'more cupcake. Chocolate cupcake and marshmallow frosting with graham cracker crumbs and chocolate on top. The marshmallow was supposed to be really fluffy but I ran out of time. :)
Heidi really liked the cupcakes. :)
I passed around the baby cupcakes and had everyone critique them for me. It was really fun.
Last night I was completely exhausted after making so many cupcakes in such a little amount of time. I made 9 different cake batters, 9 different kinds of frosting, 11 total cupcake combinations, 216 baby cupcakes and 132 big cupcakes in 12 hours with one mixer and one oven. Totally crazy!! Lets just say I slept really good last night. :)
