100 Cupcakes

Choco-Banana with Nutella Buttercream - AKA my breakfast.

Yesterday was the big day and after spending about four days in the kitchen  and telling the boys to find sustenance elsewhere, I managed to make just over 100 cupcakes. Chocolate with chocolate frosting, chocolate-banana with Nutella frosting and Apple, pear & cinnamon muffins (In a bid to offer a healthy option which surprisingly didn't go down too well - although saying that I haven't got any left).

Taste Testing Lubna - Note ecstatic look on face :)

Most people just wanted to indulge in a classic chocolate or vanilla cupcake with lashings of frosting and sprinkly bits on top - which is just how it should be!

My friend managed to make 350, extremely tasty, very pretty cupcakes in a wide range of flavours - which is pretty damn good for one lady in her own kitchen!

I had a brilliant time making, baking and selling the cupcakes and meeting new people and would definitely do it again.

Super Excited!

I am. A friend and I were at a very nice event over the weekend chatting about cupcakes (as you do) when she mentioned she will be selling hers for the first time ever at a charity event - she'll be making 500 cupcakes all by herself! I asked if she needed any help and she said yes! So in a couple of weeks I will be taking on a cupcake challenge of mammoth proportions - and that's what is getting me jumping-up-and-down excited.

If there's one thing I like more than baking it's researching what I'm going to bake, thinking about what I am going to bake and then of course eating what I have already baked...that's what I am doing now except for the eating part. Right now I am deciding which cupcakes I'll be making and how in hell will I make around 250 cupcakes with one muffin pan :)

The challenge begins...
