Lastminute Cupcakes Galore.........

I made 60 cupcakes last Friday....... and only 6 are remaining...

It all started with my sister-in-law's birthday...... I wanted to make something and thought cupcakes ( I had made a cake for her last year), and  there were few other close relatives and friends we needed to visit so I will make some for them too... this was Friday morning and I didn't have some of the stuff so off I went to the shops after dropping off my son at school... made the cupcakes in between looking after the little one,  picking up lunch ( my mother-in-law had lovingly made for me too), making dinner, picking up my son, picking up my hubby. Made the first batch and then it struck 'oh my God some of them won't eat the cupcakes on Friday 'cos it had egg in it'... So made another vegetarian batch. 

All together 60 cupcakes waiting to be decorated and it was already 5:30 pm and had to take some of them by 7pm when we start the visits!!!My head was already on dysfunction mode... I couldn't even think of a proper design to do.  Then I made the executive decision to just decorate 3-4 cupcakes and give the rest as it is without icing ;-). Even that was tedious especially with my hubby breathing down my neck saying "we are late... we are late...if we make an appointment we should go on time etc...." Anyway I managed to get 24 cupcakes to my sis-in-law and

  6 of them to a good friend of ours who are expecting their first baby.

Now Saturday morning  I was so tired , I wanted to get up early  but managed to get up by 8:00am and I had planned to take some cupcakes to a friends morning tea birthday party which started at 10 am. Managed to do 12 of them and ended up going to the party at 11am ( guess what my hubby would have been saying by then?? ;-))

Came back from the party and started decorating some more cupcakes for a dear cousin and his lovely wife who are also expecting their first child. At least I had a bit more time with these ones but still we were late getting there' cos of me ;-).

Next time I have to plan things properly...... no Last Minute anything!!! but I wonder if this will ever happen???? ;-)
