Whilst I set to work making sugar paste flowers, hearts and cutouts for the message, Caitlin carefully went about baking the cupcakes. After the decorations were completed and left to dry, I whipped up the vanilla frosting and covered the cakes. Meanwhile I recruited my other daughter to cover a shoebox with wrapping paper, as I have yet to order boxes for my cupcakes.
Amazingly all this took only 2 hours! The next morning I assembled the decorations on to the cupcakes and packed them carefully with tissue paper to prevent them sliding around in the box. For a rush job we were pretty pleased with the result. The birthday girl was both surprised and delighted.
With the summer holidays over, I am finding it hard to find time to work out a logo for my burgeoning cake business. I have a couple of ideas in my head that I just need to try out on paper. Once this is done I can go ahead and order business cards and labels to stick on delivery boxes. On a more positive note I have located a dealer who can provide me with smaller numbers of cupcake boxes at a reasonable price.
At this stage it would be slightly premature to order thousands of boxes!!!!
