My grandmother is a member of the local Country Women's Association (CWA) and they had a cake stall this week. She has previously asked me to do some baking for her for cake stalls. I am more than happy to do it as it gives me a chance to do some baking and not have to eat it all myself. I love making cupcakes. The first time I cooked for a stall I made these vanilla cupcakes using the Magnolia recipe and decorated them up. I was told that they were very popular.
This time my grandmother said that I should make them smaller. I am not sure what she expected though as they were made in my regular cupcake pans. I think they looked bigger because of the icing.
Anyway, I found some slightly smaller cases and didn't fill them as much. So then ended up smaller than the previous once. She also didn't want them as fancy. I have no idea why. When everyone loved them so much and I enjoyed doing it, but whatever, that is what she wanted. In the end I decided not to make the Magnolia recipe again and found one on Exclusively Food. It didn't make too many and had a really nice glaze recipe with it. I had some left over flowers from something else so popped them on top. I was happy with them. I haven't seen my grandmother since the stall so I am not sure how well things sold. I hope that they went quickly again.
