I am running an after school class where i am going to teach the kids to do the rosette on top of the cupcake with the 1M tip. Each kid will have 6 cupcakes, there are 22 kids (omg!), so 132 cupcakes.
I made the traditional wilton buttercream, 1/2 cup crisco, 1/2 cup butter, 4 cups of powdered sugar. I have 8 batches made already.
will that be enough? any other time I've ever done cupcakes in a large scale i've been at my house so i could always whip up extra if needed. I would rather have too much than not enough, of course.
is there a rule of thumb that 1 batch of frosting covers X number of cupcakes?
