First, does anyone know how many cups Indydebi's recipe makes?

Second, I'm making 120 cupcakes (don't ask!) for my DD's birthday next week. I've never made that many at once and I have no idea how to calculate how much frositng I'm going to need. I'll want them pretty "full" - maybe 2 times around with a 2D tip and would rather have too much frosting than not enough. Any ideas how to calculate? I wish Wilton had cupcakes on their baking guide!


I've been out of the cake game for a while now (went back to work FT about 8 months ago) and I am anxious to get back into it!

OK, I got my answer for question #2 on the cc forum (duh, should have gone there first!) but I still need to know how many cups Indydebi's recipe makes if someone could help!

I make her frosting all the time but I have never measured. I would say about 4 cups. But I'm not really sure. One batch will frost three dozen cupcakes for me. HTH
