ASeriously get a good friend to help, use two mixers and at least eight cupcake pans. We were baking four trays a a time and got them all done in a half day. The buttercream took the longest just because of the creaming time.

AJust an FYI... You can also check with your local grocery store, they sometimes sell the containers cheaper than the cake supply stores!!!

AUpdate: my large order ended up larger than anticipated--648 cupcakes over two days, 27 dozen each day.

Wed and Thurs--I made the frosting flavors over two nights. Friday night I took my supplies to my friend's house where I would do my baking on Saturday. Friday night I set things up and did a test bake to get a feel for her oven. Saturday was baking day. I made the batter while a friend (who worked for a free cupcake order the week before) filled the pans with liners, filled the liners, and moved cooled cupcakes into clamshell containers. Saturday night I put the 27 dozen for day #2 into the freezer at her house and mine. Sunday I went back to her house and frosted the first 27 dozen. Monday delivered batch #1 and thawed second half of the order. Tuesday--frosted second half of Oder. Wed--batch #2 delivered

All in all it went smoothly! Thanks for the advice! [IMG][/IMG]
