First Order for the Week Done!

I had an order of 4 desserts for 50 people today.  Started baking the American Carrot Cupcakes and Cookies n Cream cheese cupcakes yesterday and left them in the fridge to chill.  This morning I woke up early to make the Apple Cinnamon Struesel Cupcakes and the Decadent Chocolate Cakes.  My kitchen was filled with the amazing smells of cinnamon and chocolate!

The weather started heating up and by lunch time it was so hot I was wondering how on earth I would be able to keep the frosting cool.  I had to refrigerate all the desserts and they took up 80% of the space in my regular sized fridge!  I ended up freezing my cheesecakes which was an excellent idea.

I didn't take process photos but I did take the finished products.

American Carrot Cupcakes, taller than usual just to be a bit whimsical! 

The Decadent Mocha Chocolate mini cakes with mocha cream cheese frosting.

Cookies N Cream (aka Oreo) Cheese Cupcakes.  Doesn't she look great?  Alethea and I each "tested" one!

Apple Cinnamon Struesel Cupcakes. It's low fat and healthy with apples and raisins in the cake.  The topping is butter (okay, a little bit unhealthy...), cinnamon and sugar.  Smells divine!

Here are the cakes all packed and ready to be picked up.  I hope the folks enjoy the desserts for supper tonight!
