The Cupcake Baking Extravaganza
some of the cupcakes
Friday morning I agreed to be an extra set of hands at a conference a girlfriend of mine was coordinating so I had to be up at 5am. I finished up helping around noon and immediately headed back to the church kitchen to finish up the cupcakes and make the frosting. Cream cheese frosting (i.e. cream cheese, butter, sugar). Yum.
That night I went home a little early to get all my gear together for the Trail Mix race the next morning. After the race, I literally cooled down for 10 minutes, hopped back in my car for my hour drive home, rinsed off in the shower and threw sweats on so I could go back to the church to decorate the cupcakes for the wedding that started in 3 hours.
So I frosted. And frosted. Then my sister Whitney came to help and we frosted together. And then my step-dad Dave came and we all frosted. And frosted. 379 cupcakes in total. Whitney and Dave were actually going to the ceremony so they took off after an hour and a half but I kept on frosting. No sooner had I frosted the last one that someone that had peeked into the ceremony told me that there were maybe 120 people in there. Not 180, not 220. 120. Ugh.
