Okay.. maybe it's not much of a BIG DEBUT, but still I've had a very exciting moment in my life! It was my first cater order for cupcakes! After a few months of waiting for a call, I ecstatically received my first bridal shower order. It was for such a lovely friend too, so the pressure was on as well! She had a lot of trust in me-- don't want to let her down!
She ordered 36 cupcakes: which offers a choice of two cakes and two frostings. She chose vanilla on vanilla and red velvet with cream cheese. And her colors were purple, orange and silver. I thought this would be my chance to try some different decoration techniques (since I always just do the usual swirl, and occasional sprinkles). After much much much scratching the head and debating what I should do, I thought I should try out royal icing flowers to put on top of each cupcake. And that's what I did! I guess it was easy for an easy flower... but I think it would be a lot more challenging to make it super nice. Next time I'm going to adventure even more in cake decorating.
It was a lot of fun although I'm not sure if I made that much money off it. My friend was kind enough to give me more than I charged, though!! I wasn't expecting that at all!! Overall, this cupcake catering will probably be more of a hobby than a lucrative business, but that is A-O-KAY by me! People around me have been really supportive so I'm soo very thankful. My friend Alicia even got me a CUPCAKE STAND as a "first order" congratulatory gift!! I'm sooo lucky! So, I'm just going to be joyful in all I do!
