Foodie Friday - Cupcakes!!!

My DH won some major awards within his company so he's having a celebration for his employees.  They are a wonderful group of people.  He asked if I could make cupcakes...I said sure then asked how many...he said, "Oh, about a 100"!!   I should have asked the question first, huh?

I did this over 3 days...first the frostings  5 batches of Cream Cheese Frosting, 2 batches of Peanut Butter Frosting.  Yesterday, I baked all the cupcakes.  This morning, I did all the frosting since I don't have room to refrigerate that many cupcakes!

Here's the result:

Here's what I made,

Coconut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These are sooooo fabulous!  I will publish the recipe if anyone wants it.  (I thought I already did but couldn't find it.on my blog..geesh!)

Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting

I couldn't find my recipe so used Paula Deen's.  I was a tiny bit disappointed as they were a bit heavy for my taste but still good.  Of course, I found my recipe last night!

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is my own recipe.  I combined several to come up with my own which our family and friends love.  Will post the recipe later.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip with Peanut Butter Cream Frosting

This frosting is sooooo yummy I could eat it with a spoon!  (ok, I already have) 

Here they are all packaged up to go.  DH bought some containers from our local grocery store bakery.  They were perfect because the domed lids saved the frosting from being smooshed. 

Finally,  Happy Anniversary to our dear friends Renee and Russ!!  I made their card early, then didn't get it in the mail!   I used the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS.  Willow01 aka Charlene (!) has a fabulous gallery.  Here's my case

you're killing me.
but I do love your card! those colors are so fresh! :)
would love your red velvet recipe- I made one from a box- texture was GREAT (surprise!)- but it tasted like chemicals. of course that was only to me. and I still managed to choke several down!
chocolate & peanut butter? I repeat: you're killing me!
