90 Chocolate Fudge cupcakes with buttercream frosting
90 White cupcakes with white frosting
... all with different combinations of flowers and colors.. and
1 giant cupcake for the couple to cut during the reception.
Friday I started with prepping lots of frosting (4 hours)
My biggest frustration of the day was knowing that if I was at work all the baking could easily be done in the industrial sized oven in about 2 hours......
at home with my one rack oven... 8!
Sunday was a lot of nervous energy for the big reveal.
What if they melted?
What if I got the day wrong?
What if... (insert any disaster) ??
Besides pondering various worst case senerios I also worked on the bride and grooms cake.
I met Bethany and Josh at a church we all attended a few years back. Wonderful couple, lots of fun. Josh said his one "must have" as far as cupcakes were concerned, was a giant teal cupcake.
Back when Bethany and Josh first booked with me, I wasn't completely sure the teal was even part of the wedding colors.. but hey if that's what the customer wants LaLaCake is happy to comply!
5:45 pm The cupcakes arrive. The bride and groom already had cupcake stands ready and waiting.
6:45 pm We are set and done! The reception hall looked beautiful (btw teal cupcake fit perfectly..phew), cupcakes delivered and I can now say I am a cake rose expert!
Congratulations Bethany and Josh!
Can't wait to do it again!
