So the shower was on a smaller scale, but I still made around 50 cupcakes for it. I was so thrilled with the outcome, and the presentation (thanks to my Mom’s idea) was spectacular. I loved the cake plates and the alternating colors. I truly don’t think I have been so impressed with a end result that looked semi-professional. I think I will need to stock up on some cool looking cake plates for future displays like this one so I don’t have to steal my Mom’s.
As mentioned in my previous post about my trial run for the mother of all first gigs as a self-proclaimed “baker”, I had plenty of cupcakes leftover for friends and family. Probably too many, but such is life. So, I spread the joy, and gave them out, and this post begins with I pawned them off on the fiances family, a family with a serious sweet tooth. It was at that moment that I got contracted for my actual chronologically first gig because it was 1 week before the other shower for Kate with the Tiffany’s theme. My future mother-in-law was hosting a bridal shower for a good family friend and wanted the exact same cupcakes with white and pink frosting. Off I went to my second trial run! You think I would have it down by the time the Tiffany’s shower came around, but some things can never be accounted for, as you will see in my next post.
I never knew how popular the Bailey’s cupcakes would become after my first trial run, but as you will also see in future posts, Bailey’s cupcakes are a huge hit! I also think it is a nice pairing with a chocolate cupcake, to have something a little more flavorful than vanilla, and, a little Irish cream never hurt anyone I was so thrilled that these were a hit, and they were for a fantastic bride-to-be so I was happy to get 1 bridal shower under my belt!
Look at the beautiful display!
