Cupcakes Galore!

This weekend was all about cupcakes.  I made 40 of of them for a baby shower, plus 24 cake pops, which doesn't sound like much until I tell you there were 6 flavors.

Strawberry...


Red Velvet...


Vanilla Almond...


Chocolate...


Cookies & Cream...


And vanilla, strawberry and lemon (flavor #6) cake pops...which I forgot to photograph.  But they were adorable.




Unfortunately, no matter how you do the math, 40 cupcakes do not fit evenly into 48 cupcake holders.  But I do love these cupcake boxes (is it still a box if it's plastic?) that hold 2 dozen.  They sell them at the local cake shop.  And they make me look like I know what I'm doing.

(True story...I took a cake to work about 15 years ago for a birthday and one of my co-workers absolutely REFUSED to believe that I made the cake. Not because it was awesome or beautiful or amazing, because it wasn't, but because it was in a bakery box.  Which I purchased at the above-referenced cake shop. :-\)

These were a lot of fun to do.  We're getting ready to gear up for birthday time again, so there should be more baking in the next few weeks!

Enjoy!
