Cupcake Bonanza



Our whole household has been in cupcake mode, it pretty much smells like coconut and chocolate heaven, wish I could send you a whiff. My husband had the ambitious idea of making 250+ cupcakes for a work gig, crazy huh? He was at it all day yesterday and we worked into the night with a bit of assistance (thanks Holly and Caitlin). It was a blast, although we had a few quirks regarding packaging and transport. The next time we make cupcakes, one batch will seem like a snap. We have a new elevated regard for Cupcaketeers. (probably not a real word?)

*ps. We used these recipes: Barefoot Contessa Coconut cupcakes // Magnolia's Chocolate Cupcakes

Wow. So how did you package and transport them? I find that a problem with only one or two batches, I don't know how you did it! :)

oh my gosh - i salute you! wow!! that is some supreme cupcake commitment! they look yummy. x

This looks like such an awesome, and yet totally overtaking, project! When I made our wedding favors, five different kinds of cookies for every guest, it looked like our entire house was covered in cookies, as I had the brilliant idea to make them all over two evenings. How do you find places for hundreds of cookies to cool at once?

But they look awesome, I hope they're a big hit! Our cookies sure were!

Where did you get your coconut recipe?

Caitlin said...

Wow! You weren't kidding about having cupcakes everywhere. I should have come over to see it in person :) Thanks for the ones you brought us. They were so good!

corin said...

Yes, how did you transport them? Super curious, and now might have to attempt the coconut cupcakes this weekend...!

LeLo said...

Wow !
Congratulation, good work !

Becky said...

you are amazing! so which was your favorite recipe? i'm sure they were both received well!

Becca said...

Wow! Those look yummy. I've made Barefoot Contessa's Coconut cupcakes before and they are divine!! Way to go. If I ever need help baking over 200 cupcakes, I'll give you a call! :)

lahmode said...

Wow, that takes dedication! I hope you had some good music playing while messing around in the kitchen.

My Owl Barn said...

Wow, you sure do love cupcakes. Those look yummy. Chocolate and vanilla is a GREAT combination.

Signorina Svizzera said...

Wow! I'm impressed! Since we lack boxed mixes here (along with vanilla extract and brown sugar) I never bake anymore. I can't imagine doing 200+ cupcakes! I salute you!

I made those coconut cupcakes for my dad's birthday this summer and they were something delicious. very impressive!

adorninc said...

Cupcakateers not a word? Well it is now! I love it! And they look deeeelish (also not a word)!

Sarah said...

That is some accomplishment! And great timing too -- I'm making 200 cupcakes for a birthday party, and I'm glad see it actually is possible.

Kathleen said...

Congrats! Sounds (and probably smells) like a huuuuge accomplishment. :)

Those from Barefoot Contessa are my favorite. Right after my husband made me some about 6 months ago we went into a upscale grocery and Contessa has a mix for those!

Urban Flea said...

That's a TON of cupcakes... now you've gone and made me hungry; thankfully we have a great cupcake shop around the corner. So much for the diet!

The Barefoot Contessa coconut cupcakes are pretty much the greatest thing I've ever eaten.

Mandi said...

I was also wondering how you transported them! haha Very impressive.

Thanks All!

As for transport, we ended up taking them out of the containers on the table and putting them closer together in large baker's boxes. Then we flattened the seats in our car and it all worked out.

Barret - They are French Tolix chairs I picked up at the Sundance outlet.
