I charged 250 for these cupcakes, including the stand. There were 50 cupcakes in all, vanilla with cannoli cream icing, brown sugar on stand, and crushed cannoli shells on some of the cupcakes. Took me about an hour of planning and sketching, 2 hours baking, and 10 hours decorating, I think. Maybe it took longer, can't remember .

I'm originally from Long Island . I know its OT, but Cannoli cream icing sounds amazing - my dad would love that for his birthday next month. Would you be willing to share your recipe?
I am going to be very honest here. . . I looked all over for a recipe, and got a recipe from cooks.com that sounded good. The taste was pretty good, but it was too runny to use as an icing. I tried adding more sugar to stiffen it- big mistake. I tried another recipe after that. Again, failure. After hours of trying to make it work, I simply went to my favorite bakery and bought their cannoli cream! OK, I know it's cheating, but it was an emergency and everyone loved it! LOL.
I had so many problems with this, though. I didn't realize the fondant decorations would start to melt in the icing, I guess because of the ricotta in the icing, not sure. Thankfully, I put them in just before the event, so they only melted a little and still looked great.
Not going to take any more orders with cannoli cream icing for a while!
