My readers know that my love for those handsome single men is at the top of my priorities; but this weekend it was all about my gays - big gay cupcakes that is. Big Gay Cupcakes on sale at the first annual JUNK IN THE TRUNK sale at M's Bar in Milwaukee. Proceeds for the sale went to the M's AIDS Walk Wisconsin team, and one of my best gals, Ms (Buy My Crap) Ruthie (above), was the hostess. I had to do the cupcakes up right. Gotta sell to your audience, right??
It was a beautiful Saturday, choc full of fun and laughter and lots of people buying other people's "crap". For the sale, I had to come up with some cupcakes to appeal to our special audience. My final creations...
the Hot Latin Lover (Mexican Hot Chocolate)...
Coconutty Pride (Rainbow Coconut Cakes with Rainbow Sprinkles)...
and last, but certainly not least, Ruthie's 'Like Butta' Cakes.
Things I have learned about baking to sell.
- I may be going to hell for proclaiming "CUPCAKES FOR SALE" every time I saw a child with its parents...hey, i knew what would sell.
- The response from buyers was awesome...which is so gratifying.
- I should have charged 14$ per cupcake.
- Otherwise...NO! DON'T DO IT! My apartment kitchen is far too small for such a venture. It was just sooooo much work and such a lonnnnng day of baking.
