I am going to make 300 cupcakes for a large gathering and I need 4 flavors- I want a little wow, a little plain, a little chocolate, and a little different. Any ideas or suggestions?
So far I think the plain or chocolate category can be filled with yellow cake and chocolate frosting.
But then I was wondering if that would be enough chocolate or should I also have chocolate cake.
My wow- maybe a ricotta cupcake with strawberry filling and strawberry buttercream- I want at least one with a filling.
I do need the icing to hold up b/c I do not have room to store 300 cupcakes in my fridge!
I did think of red velvet with cream cheese but I'm a little worried for the frosting.
And then to transport them..... hmmm!
Thanks for your feedback.

Cream cheese icing won't be an issue even overnight if held at cool room temp.

Hello! I would stick with a chocolate like you said above, you cant go wrong with a traditional chocolate!

Red Velvet is always a big wow I think!

I have recently just made a cheese cake cupcake too filled with a strawberry coules, topped with cream cheese and sliced strawberrys, and they are in season too I have heard! Quite basic but very yummy!

Key Lime and cococut is delicious too! icon_smile.gif

Yum- lime and coconut! I was thinking of a margarita cupcake. My last big set of cupcakes were red velvet- which is always a favorite....

Thanks for the tip about the cream cheese frosting.

I am getting ready for a huge order of minis (800) and I am just doing white, chocolate, strawberry and red velvet. 1/2 of the white I will do in a reg buttercream the other half a chocolate fudge buttercream. Same with the chocolate. Then the strawberry will have a strawberry buttercream and red velvet with a cream cheese icing. The decorations are what I am working on to make them special.
Also, someone on here told me to try under the bed plastic totes lined with the non-slip liner. They hold up well and can be reused over and over. Hope that helps!

I would do one fruity flavor, one chocolate, one plain, and one "gourmet". icon_smile.gif
