Party Cupcakes

A friend in school wanted to order a cake for 20 pax for the children in her programme. I suggested cupcakes instead. Easier to eat and I've always wanted to try decorating cupcakes. I took a lot of trouble to prepare the order now that I have the time to spare. I went to B-I-Y store at Bukit Timah to buy some cupcake trays and a Wilton 1M decorating tip just to make the big buttercream swirls on the cupcakes.

I probably spend more money on the cardboard box and cupcake trays than the ingredients for the cupcakes. $11 for 4 plastic cupcake trays... That's expensive plastic! Was hopeful to get the trays back so that I can use them again... Jerome said I'm a lousy business woman if I'm thinking of earning some money here. Definitely not worth the time and effort. But I told him it's really for fun!

Anyway, I had 6 cupcakes left and we just had some for tea earlier on :) Yummy cake, but honestly that's a lot of buttercream... It would be great to use whipped fresh cream instead but I just wonder if it could have survived the transportation.

Pastel pink, super sweet ...
