A couple weeks ago, I was assigned the task to make fifty cupcakes for a baby shower on June second. For a bakery, that isn't much of a dangerous task, but in my kitchen, it was. I spent much more money on it than I should have, but the outcome was definitely worth it.
The cake is red velvet and the frosting is cream cheese. You can use any recipe that you want, but the key to making cupcakes for an occasion is planning.
I decided to do another treat-a giant cookie.
The frosting is the same cream cheese frosting from the cupcakes up there, just with a different tip and dyed.
This was actually my first time writing with icing, and I think it turned out pretty good, considering that it was legible.
The cookie was the centerpiece between the two cupcake stands and the fact that everything was edible was even better!
