Remember that more chaos I mentioned in the last post? Well here it is. Six days after I got home from Brasil, I was to deliver 200 cupcakes and 1 cutting cake for the wedding of my friend Brittany. Which wouldn’t be that big of a deal if I weren’t living in an RV and could work in the comfort of my own kitchen (acutually, it would still be a big deal… just way less complicated and chaotic). Thankfully my church has a huge kitchen and I had free reign. So aside from not having a lemon zester and having to haul my mixer, muffin tins, plus everything else needed to make cake and use a gas oven (which I love btw, but not used to) things worked out pretty good! Oh and I had to leave threatening notes on the boxes of finished cupcakes to be sure no one tried to steal some while I was gone. Anything left in the church kitchen is usually fair game, unless you leave notes threatening life and limb. Well here are some pics of what I made. The flavors were Chocolate with chocolate frosting, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, vanilla with vanilla frosting and lemon with lemon cream cheese frosting. I kept it fairly simple since I had to make so many and all by myself in a short time. Usually I’ll make some royal icing decorations ahead of time and put them on the cake the day of.
the awesome oven
Cream cheese frosting – this stuff was seriously delicious
