emmc ... do you have a freezer just for your baking? Would it be possible to have a picture of your plastic container to see the size? Thank you in advance for your time.

 

 

CIAO!

Do you have one other person who could help you?  My friend and I did 500 in four hours.  We had two mixers and 8 cupcake pans going.  It was actually very fast and easy.  We made all the buttercream and froze it, and it took hardly any time at all to ice all of them.

No I only have a normal freezer. Also I used normal square containers, the freezer type which you will normally use to store meats. I don't have a picture now but if you could wait i am planning to do it again this weekend for another order. I'll take a picture then icon_smile.gif

These are the clamshell containers that I use. I found this website to have the best prices of any I've found. You can also order them in any quantity from 1 - 1000. http://www.wesellcoffee.com/cgi-wesellcoffee/sb/productsearch.cgi?search_field=COPL2217&storeid=*1eda1924aa0df99a6420448714dea5a925

I have several Tupperware containers that I put cooled cupcakes in to store before I frost.  They are easy to stack and store and keep the cupcake fresh and moist.  I ice them as I remove to put in the delivery boxes.  Can anyone tell me if the plastic clamshells keep their shape when they are stacked?  I am concerned about them not holding up if you stack them three or four high into a large box.

I just did a bunch a few days ago and used the foil baking pans with the plastic lids.  The cupcakes stayed very moist and I was able to stack them just fine.

Yes, you can stack them. I use the plastic milk crates that you can find at Target or Walmart and stack 3 plastic clamshell containers in each milk crate. Then I can stack the milk crates 2 high in my car for delivery.

Fingers crossed! The committee is meeting today to choose vendors. I sent them a few samples.

Whoa! Is this a home oven? I would bake 6+ dozen a day for 8-9 days! With much freezing of the first ones. You can actually freeze them frosted, too.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Holy cow, I'm no longer worried about an order of 100! How much profit are you going to make off such a gigantic order??

I purchase mine from Cuptainers ( http://www.cuptainers.com/Cupcake-Supplies/Cupcake-Holders/Cupcake-Containers/12-Counts-Cupcake/12-Counts-Regular-Size-Cupcake-or-Muffin-Container-100-CT.html ).The quality is great, and I haven't found any at a better price than this!

Yep, doing this in my home. Mapping the whole thing out now and the job isn't for about 6 weeks. I've limited the order to my Simply Frosted cupcakes, no fillings or fancy toppings. I'll also be ordering some clamshell containers and labeling them before I bake to keep things straight. Child care and an assistant have also been arranged.

Thanks so much for the tips!
