Let me see if I understand - you've taken an order for cupcakes for a wedding and you don't any any established recipes in place?

Um.

I'm also not sure that taking an order for a wedding, or any event, is a good idea until you have an excellent set of recipes for cake and icing. Start testing recipes that you find on here or the rest of the internet until you find one you like. Searching for frosting, not frostening, will help.

A good recipe equals years of blood sweat and tears, only then will you have a good recipe. icon_lol.gif

Uh, oh, you meanies... 

 

stloretta, you must certainly have some products you're happy with. Start with those recipes and bake samples for tasting. You may be pleasantly surprised that you already have what you are looking for.

Stloretta, there are many, many, many, recipes on CC (and a few more!) - have a look through the Recipe section, using the search functionality if this helps. I found several cupcake and frosting recipes that were useful, however you WILL need to trial them yourself to find one that suits what you are looking for, because really only you will know this.

You could try some recipes from allrecipes.com that have a 5-star rating.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Maybe this isn't the group for me to be in...I wasn't asking for rude comments but comments from NICE people who like to share ideas and such...I thought this was for asking questions and getting ideas and sharing info...guess I was wrong...but just remember you all had to start at the bottom and work up...and I am not planning to make a career out of this...I  help people out who are on a strict budget, and I also give most of my product away to families that I know cannot afford the fancy cakes...this is a gift that I was given and planned to share it...so to all you negative people thanks for the rude comments...you sure know how to make a person welcomed...icon_sad.gif

There are lots of helpful people here; I guess you just haven't found many yet.

 

I don't bake cupcakes, so I don't have any recipes for you. When I need a recipe for something new, I always check allrecipes.com. Lots have many reviews, so you can tell if the recipe needs a little tweak to be perfect. There are often very good ideas about adding or changing a little something, even on the 5-star recipes.

 

I don't much use the Cake Central recipes section. Anyone can post any recipe there, whether it's any good or not. There used to be a rating system (I think it was 1 to 10 stars), but since the last time the website got overhauled, the ratings are gone.

Seriously, why so mean everyone? All I'm seeing lately on these threads us criticism and judgement. People are asking for help, no to be belittled.
If you see a comment or question that you don't agree with, why can't you say to yourself "silly novice baker...." and click away from the conversation?

stloretta, good luck to you. I'm proud of you for taking on this endeavor! With only the experience of making a few dozen at a time and the advice of helpful bakers on this site, I recently completed an order for 648 cupcakes. You can do 75! Keep the faith!

I am not a professional bake, I admit that and know that.  I am trying to do it help my Cousin who is getting married have a beautiful wedding.  They have asked me to make 75 cupcakes with a nice soft fluffy frosting.  Their colors are mauve and ivory and wants a piped frosting cupcake.

 

 I also have looked all over the Internet for info but get so confused as to the amount of recipes that are offered..so I thought why not ask the people who do know what they are doing for a little advice...so if there is anyone who can help me out just a bit.  I would be very appreciative.  Thanking you in advance.

 

I am not asking for your secret recipes,I understand you have worked long and hard to achieve them.  Just maybe a very nice recipe that will work well for my Cousins wedding

I PMed you a frosting recipe. Good luck. Hang in there, there is some great advice given by wonderful people on here. I'm not sure why people are so determined to let everyone know everything they are thinking these days.

Also, when searching Internet recipes, I stick with allrecipes.com and only make 4.5 or 5 star recipes. They're usually pretty good. You can also read the comments for tips and tricks others have used to make the recipes even better!
