Cupcake gig

This weekend I made cupcakes for a children's birthday party. The party had a carnival theme, so there were polka dots all over. (The decorations were beautiful, but I foolishly forgot to photograph the main room.) The client wanted neutral colored frosting with colored dots to match the party colors.

I made 50 cupcakes and 50 mini-cupcakes, plus a bunch extra of each. The color-coded flavors were chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate buttercream, coconut cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, lemon cupcakes with Meyer lemon buttercream, and vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.

Transport went smoothly, thankfully...even though I have made cupcakes for two weddings, I still am a bit nervous until the cupcakes have arrived safely at their site.

I have not heard back from the client yet, but I hope the cupcakes were enjoyed by the partygoers!

Cute blog! Your cupcakes look yummy! I had thought about cupcakes for my own wedding, but too stressful me thinks.
