Cupcake Bake Sale: An Army of Cupcakes

This weekend I had the privilege of working with volunteers from our troop's Family Readiness Group (FRG) to make and sell over 400 cupcakes!  If you know me, you know I like to go big, so this was a challenge that was right in my lane.

What I love most about this is how willing and supportive the soldiers and spouses are to give of their time, money, and waistlines to a good cause.  We had helpers who put in anywhere from 3 hours to over 20 hours on this project!!

As promised to several members of the troop, I've compiled the recipes we used for our five flavors. We had Chocolate Mint, Peanut Butter Cup, Birthday Cake, Pumpkin with Orange Cream Frosting, and Monster Cakes.

The recipes are uploaded to Scribd so you can click the download button in the preview panels to save PDF files directly to your computer. This is my first time to use Scribd to share files, so there may be some changes as I learn the best way to operate.  ;)  

BIG NOTE: THERE IS AN OMISSION IN THE PB CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE RECIPE. IT'S MISSING 1 CUP of CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER IN THE ICING. I can't remember my scribd password, so change that on your copy. THanks

 And for the googly-eyed monster cupcakes...skip on over to Annie's Eats for a tutorial on those. We used our birthday cake recipe and tinted the icing purple. They are cute with or without the M&M's eyes, too.

Did you get to enjoy some of these fabulous treats?  If so, comment below. We'd LOVE to hear from you. :)

Would we also reward within the additional vibrant dodging mechanics swtor credits of online games like Guild Wars two? Or does one like WoW's blend of motion and static factors just like it is actually?

  2. Oh, my gosh! I'm so glad I jumped on your blog! I have done the same thing on my blog with my Grandma's recipes: But crazier than that is the Christmas present I made for my mom, sister and two aunts. I collected all Grandma's cookbooks and recipe notes and photocopied all the ones that she submitted and put them in custom-made binders. I ordered the binders from Zazzle and they actually match your blog background! I'm getting chills just thinking about it! I was planning to do a blog post about the binders soon, so I'll let you know when I do. In the meantime, check out the binder design:
