That's a lot of cupcakes!

This was the largest cake order I have done in my jimmy cakes career, and it was a lot of fun! Hours of measuring, mixing, baking, and decorating produced over 25 dozen cupcakes for this March wedding!

There were four gourmet cupcake flavors - Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Raspberry, Coconut Cream, and Strawberry Cheesecake. These flavors were pretty much created for this particular wedding, as the bride sent me a list of flavors she would like to try. Basically, the bride said that she wanted guests to be able to look at the cupcakes and know what they were picking up.

Above we have a cookies and cream cupcake, which is a vanilla cake with finely crushed Oreos in the batter itself. Topped with plain white icing, some crushed Oreos and a 1/4 Oreo.

Above is a chocolate raspberry cupcake, which is a chocolate cake batter with real raspberry fruit in the batter, topped with buttercream icing and a fresh raspberry.

Above is a coconut cream cupcake, which is a coconut cake with finely chopped coconut flakes in the batter, topped with coconut buttercream icing and freshly toasted coconut flakes.

Above is a strawberry cheesecake cupcake which is actually a cheesecake cupcake with freshly chopped strawberry pieces in the batter, topped with strawberry buttercream and a sliced strawberry.
