I've mentioned in earlier posts that my incredibly talented cousin just came out with a book last month: Rejected:Tales Of The Failed, Dumped, and Canceled. Last night he had a reading of excerpts that were actually rejected from his "rejected" book. Funny, right? Wish you could have been there. It was at this fabulous antiquated book store in SoHo where 100% of the profits go to Housing Works, Inc. which benefits homeless HIV-positive New Yorkers. In that case, I was happy to provide free cupcakes for my cousin's event. I also purchased this great vintage PIE book! Siked!
Anyway, back to the cupcakes. I made tons and tons of them. My apartment was filled with cupcake madness. I made about 200 mini chocolates and 200 mini yellow buttermilk cupcakes and interchanged chocolate fudge and vanilla buttercreams. I topped the vanilla buttercream with a sprinkle medley and the chocolates with white nonpareils. They looked really gorgeous together. I also used different colored cupcake liners including green, blue, purple, pink, orange, and white to add some variety!
These were a big huge hit last night! All 400 of them were inhaled by the time the show was over. People were double fisting and coming back for seconds and thirds. I took a bunch of pictures so here you go...Enjoy!
