Craziest order to date!

I was going through a crazy week when I suddenly received a request which left me dumbstruck for quite a while. After doing some basic calculation, it hit me that the request was for 2100 cupcakes which I had to do within 4 days after a crazy weekend of 4 big orders.

Nevertheless, always loving the challenge I said okay without realizing what lies ahead for me!

Luckily I had 2 amazing elves to help me out day in day out and we were pulling at least 16 hours a day. The moment we wake up, we work till when our eyes cannot take it anymore... I was hyperventilating most of the time worried I will not be able to deliver!

Here are some snippets of my craziest order to date.

Amazing!!! I cannot image making 2,100 cupcakes in 4 days. You do realize that now that you've proven you can do it, you're going to get more orders like this one? :)

My favorite photo is the one of the boxes going down the stairs.

Fantastic work! I'm so inspired! May I ask, where did you get those stackable orange trays that you kept the cuppies in?
