I currently make cupcakes and my friend has given me only 3 days notice to make 20 cupcakes for a special occasion , anniversary- she must have known i would not be able to get the bits by three days trouble is I said yes but it is short notice. I don't want t let her down but his is last minute. com

Come on OP, is it 20 or 200?

20 is a piece of cake wink

RobotHamster Wed 21-Aug-13 14:27:49

Ah.. typo makes sense.

I could still do it in a day though.

Lweji Wed 21-Aug-13 14:29:59

Could you still ask her to get the bits you need?

OneLittleToddleTerror Wed 21-Aug-13 14:31:35

No, the OP didn't come back and say it's a typo yet. We are all just speculating.

Monday I started 24 fairy cakes at 12.00 by 1.00 they were on the WI stall, by five past one they were sold.

I could be bothered to get the mixer dirty.

Come on OP just crack on with it.

Alwayscheerful Wed 21-Aug-13 14:37:50

Meant I couldn't be bothered to get the mixer out!

MrsTerryPratchett Wed 21-Aug-13 14:39:25

Do they look like this?

hermioneweasley Wed 21-Aug-13 14:43:37

Dammit, this is making me hungry. If only I coukd bake a cake, but apparently it will take 3 days

HeySoulSister Wed 21-Aug-13 14:45:53

whats the difference between a 'cupcake' and a normal fairy cake?

SaucyJack Wed 21-Aug-13 14:48:24

About 4 quid Soulsister..........

littlewhitebag Wed 21-Aug-13 14:50:54

My sil makes cupcakes and can knock out 200 in no time. Even I could Make 20 in three days. If you can't buy special bits to top the cakes then Improvise?

MrsTerryPratchett Wed 21-Aug-13 14:50:58

Boom boom cha.

adagio Wed 21-Aug-13 14:51:22

Do NOT click ^MrsT's* link if you are hungry.

That is all.

MrsTerryPratchett Wed 21-Aug-13 14:51:25

That was a high hat to Saucy.

My friend is a cake maker ,last week she did a two tier wedding cake and six one tier birthday cakes and 60 cupcakes.

Maybe you are not cut out for the high octane deadline-driven world of cupcake baking.

jojane Wed 21-Aug-13 15:19:16

I'm not a professional but in 3 days I made a 3 tier hello kitty cake with a giant huge hello kitty cake pop on top, hello kitty iced biscuits, hello kitty choc crispy cakes with hello kitty choc on, hello kitty and legoman head cake pops, hello kitty sandwiches, and 4 marshmallow trees. I think pretty much anyone could knock out 20 cupcakes - and even if it's a typo and should be 200, you aren't going to want to make them more than a couple of days in advance otherwise will be stale and horrible

MadBusLady Wed 21-Aug-13 15:33:31

I have now stopped reading about Mesopotamia and am about to make a cake.

I blame all of you.

pinkglitter Wed 21-Aug-13 18:26:56

thank you for all the lovely messages - it was for an anniversary so there would be no way I would be able to get anything delivered in that time as she wants them all 10th anniversary & 18th.
my point was its not much notice.
p.s i don't need rude shit.

ViviPru Wed 21-Aug-13 18:29:27

Oh sorry you feel a bit picked on, I'm genuinely glad you came back! But I still don't really get it....

I understand that you feel it's not enough notice, but I'm a bit baffled by

"so there would be no way I would be able to get anything delivered in that time as she wants them all 10th anniversary & 18th."

ViviPru Wed 21-Aug-13 18:30:28

p.s. I LOVE "p.s i don't need rude shit." grin

If we had tickers, that'd be mine

Eilidhbelle Wed 21-Aug-13 18:30:38

Wait, was it twenty or two hundred? Is it because you won't be able to get the decorations on time?

ViviPru Wed 21-Aug-13 18:34:24

No no no, Eilidhbelle, now pay attention. It's because she wants them all 10th anniversary & 18th see?


Fakebook Wed 21-Aug-13 18:35:38

Wth. Why can't you just get some fondant icing and colour it, cut into star or heart shapes or whatever and write 18th and 40th on it with some food pens and then jazz it up with icing and flowers or some shit? Surely as a cake maker you have decorating equipment at hand?

Nottalotta Wed 21-Aug-13 18:38:06

But what stuff do you need? I made 60 cupcakes and iced them and my sister madedecorations for them on the day before my wedding. Sister also made a sugar craft spray of flowers for my wedding cake. The day before the wedding. Two days before we went into the baking type shop in our very small town and bought the stuff.
