I'm making 150 cupcakes to sell and a simple 1 tiered cake that will go in a drawing. 50 are double chocolate, 50 are strawberry, 25 are vanilla and 25 are an undecided flavor yet.... thinking possibly pumpkin spice. My question is, what would be the easiest way to make the batter for all of these? I only have a hand mixer and not sure how much it can take. icon_biggrin.gif I have a chocolate butter cake recipe I use for my cupcakes and thinking to just double that. I'm not sure it will make 50, however.

Any advice is welcome! thumbs_up.gif

one cup cake at a time! use all room temp ingredients (particuarly butter - night mare to mix if its hard!).
with rest time in between mixing, ur mixer should hold up fine... hopefully! but really, not too tough doing that by hand either.
might be easier for your self if you can make a base recipe (vanilla) which you then split to add chocolate, strawberry and pumpkin to.
