so i had my very first wedding yesterday! whew! i worked non-stop for 3 days to make 150 cupcakes - half chocolate chip, half vanilla cheesecake, a 6" marble cake, buttercream frosting, chocolate syrup frosting and 168 handwritten white chocolate double happiness symbols. oh, and a custom-made cupcake stand!

here are some pictures if you'd like to see!

wow. looks good! the white chocolate symbols are so cute, too. great job!

how long were you baking cupcakes? i'm going to bake about the same number of cupcakes in three weeks and i need to budget my time wisely.

TIA!

it took me about 5-6 hours to bake the cupcakes. i had 2 dozen pans and a 6-cupcake pan in the oven at a time (i have a convection oven and i can't fit anymore than that icon_sad.gif )

then i swapped out the pans with two more dozen pans (so i had 4 12-cupcake pans total and the 6er).

no, i didn't freeze. i frosted then refrigerated.
