My First Real Cupcake “Gig”

I am excited to announce to you that i have had my first real paid cupcake sale! When i threw the baby shower for my sister, one of our friends asked if i would be interested in making cupcakes for a shower she would be throwing this month. I wasn’t really sure how serious she was considering i have never been paid to make cupcakes for any events before. I eventually messaged her to ask her about it and she was happy to have me make them! I made the same flavor of cupcakes i made for my sister Erin’s baby shower. Her theme was “You Are My Sunshine” so the yellow lemon cupcakes fit the theme perfectly!

Cupcake Recipe: Lemon Raspberry Cream Cupcakes

Cooling Cakes..

I used a different piping technique with these (and yes the photo is on the back of my car) I took it while meeting up to hand off these beauties to the party..

I transport all my cupcakes in my amazing cupcake courier (post to come later about the love i have for it)

I piped these with an Atecco Open Star Tip # 827

I also used some Wilton Pearlized White Sprinkles

She said the cupcakes were a hit and i was so excited and happy to be able to share my love of baking with others! Here is a link to her blog where you can see the cupcakes on display with the adorable toppers she made for the cakes!

If your interested in ordering any cupcakes, please let me know!
