A few months ago my church had a local bake sale to raise money for our youth to go to missions camp. They left yesterday morning and I’m so excited for my kiddos (my two oldest are on the trip) and the experiences they will have this week.
As I was going through my photos – I found some pics of some of the things I made for the bake sale and I thought I’d share them with you. There’s not a lot to tell about these. They were all done with my Wilton 1M tip and if I remember right, they were all vanilla cake flavored with vanilla buttercream.
First up is that blue and white swirled cake up top. I’m a big believer in “waste not, want not” so for the bake sale, I used up extra buttercream from other projects I was doing that weekend. So for the big cake, I already had some blue frosting in a bag and I wondered how the buttercream roses (or some call them rosettes) would look if I just added some white into the bag and had it swirled together.
Now… I also had some other blue frosting in a bag… a different shade, and some purple leftover too. So I put it in a bag together, the purple on top of the blue and made these buttercream roses cupcakes. I think they were my favorite of everything! Can you see that one in the middle with both colors? Love!!
These cupcakes were also done with the frosting I used on the cake. I actually think I did these first and then the cake, because a few of these cupcakes look solid blue. While I didn’t do these as “roses” – they were also piped with the 1M tip.
Lastly, I had a ton of bright yellow/gold buttercream leftover and lots more cupcakes, so I made 4 boxes of vanilla cupcakes with yellow frosting.
There were lots and lots of other goodies at the bake sale and it was a huge success, but these were the things I brought.
Do you have any questions about the cake or cupcakes? Leave me a comment!
