No time for St. Patricks Day...

My biggest order so far...70 dozen mini's! I've been doing cupcakes for over a year, and I still didn't know how to plan for this. I ran out of EVERY ingredient at one point. Regardless, I felt like a "real" baker. My mom and I had a serious assembly line constructed, and by the end, we were really moving fast!

Picture 70 dozen of these:

Do you even know what 70 dozen boxes like this would look like?

I'll give you a clue...this is what 35 dozen look like...

A check off my list

Since baking has turned from a hobby into a part-time job, I don't get to bake for "fun" as much I used to. I have lists of things (mostly in my head) of things I want to make/try/create/etc. When Michael got a new job, I took full advantage of the situation and made a rainbow cake! I've been wanting to make one for SO LONG...but it's hard to justify making a cake for no reason. It turned out perfectly! I'm usually a big critic of EVERYTHING I make...but I love the way this looks. The picks on top were a little more cluttered than I planned, but still, I have no complaints.

A close up of the picks:

...and the cake!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Suess

Today is Dr. Seuss' birthday. What a fantastic reason to celebrate with cupcakes!?!

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." -Dr. Seuss

"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
-Dr. Suess

"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one." -Dr. Suess

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.

And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.” -Dr. Seuss

The last quote is a personal favorite.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss.
