Sweet and Stout does weddings!
I’m sorry to report that we don’t have a new cupcake flavor to tempt you with today. Instead, we wanted to share with you our very first wedding cupcakes! Back when we first started doing our Kickstarter campaign to get our business off the ground, our friends Amanda & Jerod contributed to our efforts and we promised them wedding cupcakes. Back in October, it seemed like a long way to go, and finally this past weekend, we got in the kitchen and made 200 cupcakes for their wedding. Half was our Salted Chocolate Caramel and the other half was the Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes.
After 4 hours in the kitchen, we emerged with all 200 cupcakes, not too bad for us! Both flavors turned out really great, and we delivered and set them up this past Saturday. Amanda had found these really great cupcake stands that we used, then we placed the rest on the surrounding tables. Each flavor had an entire table dedicated to it, and we really needed it! 200 cupcakes is a lot!
I over-calculated the amount of batter that we would actually need to produce these cupcakes and ended up with over 10 dozen of each flavor. We ended up having to use the giant mixer in the kitchen (for the first time), it was pretty awesome to be able to produce so much batter all at once.
The next wedding we’ll be baking cupcakes for is our own, which is coming up pretty rapidly! It’s just a 3 week countdown until Dylan and I become Mr. and Mrs. Sweet and Stout, and we’re pretty excited about that. We have a couple guest posts lined up for the blog while we’re away, looking forward to sharing those. We had quite the weekend filled with baking, this past Sunday we baked another 3 dozen cupcakes for the Manito Tap House. It’s good to be busy!
