I have mentioned it a few times before, but a friend/co-worker of mine asked me to make cupcakes for her wedding, which happened to take place this past weekend. This was the first wedding I have ever baked anything for, and my first big event in general. I had tried out all of the recipes ahead of time so I knew there would be no surprises. I honestly didn’t get nervous until the day before I baked everything (the day before the wedding), but it quickly turned to excitement.
I vastly underestimated how much work making 260 cupcakes would be. All in all it was a long 10 hour day spent in the kitchen, covering myself with flour, powdered sugar and frosting. I was completely exhausted, with a very sore right shoulder and hand by the end of the day. Luckily I had some helpers along the way. I wouldn’t rule out doing any more weddings or big events, but I would definitely try making as much as I could ahead of time!
It ended up being a beautiful day for the wedding, and the cupcakes seemed to be a huge hit. They were gone probably about an hour into the reception!
Here are the links to all the recipes I used:
I also made some plain vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with either vanilla or hot chocolate buttercream (recipe to come)!
Congratulations Heather and Matt!
