How many cupcakes can 1 batch of butter cream frosting frost?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am looking to find out how many cupcakes one batch of buttercream frosting frost? I am making cupcakes for a fundraiser at the end of this month and I am making 600 cupcakes. I am thinking that one batch is for 24 cupcakes. But my first year of doing it I had WAY TOO MUCH left. So we my figuring I am thinking one batch will be enough for 72 cupcakes. MY cupcakes are a normal size cupcake and my frosting is 1/2c Crisco, 1/2c milk, 1/2c butter, one bag of powder sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla. What are you thoughts on it? Please help!

It really depends on how you decorate them. Mine can do anywhere from 24-48 depending on the style I am doing. If it is the 1M tip, I usually frost about 24 with a batch of frosting.

Why don't you make a batch and see? Or half a batch if you don't want to waste too much. You don't have to even ice actualy cupcakes - just practice on some baking paper with circles the size of cupcakes, then you can scrape it all back into the bowl.

 

If you're making 600 cupcakes, it would be worth making at least half a batch so you know how much of each ingredient you need to have on hand.
