These cupcakes were an order by a customer. The customer is someone I work with and we happened to be talking about her birthday and cakes.
I mentioned that I was a baker and would be happy to do some cupcakes for her if she wanted. She asked me if I could make some for the office because when its someone’s birthday in the office, they are supposed to bring cake in for everyone.
She asked for 60 strawberry cupcakes which is the biggest order I have done but I was looking forward to the challenge.
I haven’t done strawberry cupcakes before so knew these would be a challenge for me. I used a lot of fresh strawberries to give these cupcakes the best strawberry flavour.
I have provided the recipe for 12 cupcakes but obviously I had to times the recipe by 5 to get enough cupcakes to fill the order.
I could only cook 24 cupcakes at a time so I did two lots then another two lots then the final lot. I also made extra because I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to cupcakes that I wanted a few in case things went wrong.
So, after five and half hours doing nothing but baking 60 cupcakes, they were finally ready to be boxed up ready for delivery.
I drove so slowly to work on Monday to make sure I didn’t destroy them. My customer loved them, and I got so many compliments about how nice they were.
