No dont read it wrong, I am not yet into cupcake business or anything, by cupcake sale I just meant I contributed some cupcakes for a cake sale at lil ones nursery for fundraising. I was overwhelmed by the response I got from other mums and teachers for my effort and they decided to jack up the price of my cupcakes which I was a bit sceptical of. But to my surprise the sale went very well and all my pricey cupcakes were sold in 5-10 mins raising a descent money for Nursery !
Eventhough I wanted to try different flavours and frosting I just went with simple vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting to focus more on decoration. I had plans to make some ballerina cupcakes as well with a balle dress but bacause of time constraints I couldnt do it. Among all cupcakes the pirate ones were the one in great demand and it was all gone in less than 1-2 minutes ! So maybe next time I should make more of pirate cupcakes and some ballerina cupcakes or hello kitty cupcakes for little girls :)
For cupcakes I used the same recipe of my vanilla cake and the frosting was vanilla buttercream frosting !
