cupcake sale

when all was said and done, the four of us baked and frosted enough cupcakes to make over $200 for graduation decorations and ironically enough, a graduation cake. we had all sorts of different cupcakes throughout the week. i did my first experiments with filling, making yellow cake with bavarian cream filling and white with strawberry. gaby made cream cheese icing for the first time. i also tried a new cake mix with no preservatives called naturally nora. it contains ingredients that are recognizable and pronouncable, so even though it has sugar (a makers diet no-no) it is a little easier to justify eating. although i only had one cupcake all week - working with them somehow makes me immune. now i know why all bakers arent massively overweight. :D
