I don’t think I told you guys about my first – and only so far – honest-to-goodness paying cupcake gig.
Heather asked me to make cupcakes for her coworker’s baby shower and I was more than happy to oblige. I would’ve done it for free, but Heather insisted on reimbursing me for supplies with a few bucks thrown in for my time.
I figured I needed to package the cupcakes up in a pretty way so I made labels and wrapped some purple ribbon around the box.
I swirled light blue and white frosting on these cupcakes and they looked okay, but I probably should’ve just gone with the single color. I got the swirled cupcakes for the shower all wrapped up before I thought to take pictures so what I have here are the extras in all blue.
The mom-to-be requested lemon cupcakes and I used this recipe. I had a box of Duncan Hines Lemon Cake Mix on hand just in case these didn’t turn out, but they were pretty tasty so luckily I didn’t need to whip up another batch.
I’m certainly not planning to quit my day job, but as long as I have the time, I’m happy to do baking-by-request on the side (you know, as long as it doesn’t interfere with my just-because baking).
