So a lot of people have been on me to start selling my baked goodies. But I'm not a fan of selling anything you make with your heart in it, because let's face it, critiques suck. And I am probably my own worst critic. But one of my friends REALLY wanted me to make an order for her friend's graduation cupcakes, and then again later this week for a huge work staff meeting.
Since I bake anyway, I said okay. My nerves leading up to the event were pretty funny, I mean it's not like I'm a total novice, I could make cupcakes in my sleep. But somehow it was different when someone is depending on you.
They came out cute and they tasted yummy...though of course I have my favorites. They got rave reviews from the purchaser and her cupcake-eaters and she said some of them want to place future orders. Wow! I don't know if my nerves could take this on a regular basis. It's much more fun baking for people who are just happy when you are giving them a slice of whatever!
On Sunday I made coconut minis and regular Kahlua chocolate. This was along with making a mini coconut cake for dessert with our friends on Sunday night AND finishing up my TWD brioche pecan sticky buns. Sunday was a busy day. Then last nite I made the 2nd order, for 100 minis of vanilla buttermilk, chocolate peanut butter, and my favorite lemon.
