19 May
I just finished my first major baking experience by making cupcakes for a coworker’s daughters graduation reception. The cupcakes were vanilla with sprinkles pink and green sprinkles mixed in. I then frosted them with swirled green and pink buttercream.  They turned out great and it was a task. I never thought my hand would make it through the 125th cupcake… it was killing from squeezing the frosting bag. I made it though!!
I also made my first decorated cake… ever! It was meant to be 2 layers, but the 2nd layer fell apart when I was leveling it. So I covered my one layer cake in a marshmallow fondant. It was the first time I worked with fondant and although it was a struggle to knead, I will work with it again because it looks so pretty! My creativity was stretched when it came time to decorate the cake and I ended up going with dots to complement the swirled cupcakes.
The cupcakes and cake were displayed on a tower for the reception and they were a hit! I will definitely be making a decorated cake sometime in the future, but I will need a break before I do cupcakes again! What do you think of how they turned out?? I’d love to hear your thoughts….
