The story of 3 girly beans & a day of fun...

It was the Saturday before Children's Day! And 3 girly beans decided to make cupcakes for a children's home! So the 3 met at the chief baker's home for a morning of fun and adventure!

First, they had to make the cupcakes. So the trio huffed and puffed as they whipped and mixed:

The cocoa

The eggs

And not to forget the milk!

And finally the cupcake batter was done! So into the liners went the batter, each a scoop, not too much and not too full:
The chief baker's favourite batter scoop

And then into the oven they all went:

And while the cupcakes doubled in size, the girly beans made the buttercream nice:

"A little of blue", said Suzy Poo. So a little went into the buttercream pool:

"Too little!" said the other, so more went into the butter:

"Nice!" said the third, so that made the colour:

And so it was with the other 2 colours:

With the buttercream ready, the bags were filled:

And so were the sprinklers all ready for use:

"The chocolate curls!" yelled the chief baker. And so they were also put to use:

The cupcakes are ready, and the girls' hands are steady:

So a piping bag each and voila! Wonders were created as each hand rotated:

And out came boxes of cupcakes with love!

And so was the story of 3 girly beans, 1 a chief baker and 2 wannabes!
Aside to Suzy Poo and Claude: Thank you girls for the wonderful time!

Hi Pinky70,

Nope, I don't conduct cupcake baking classes. I just do cupcakes for a passion. :)

These cupcakes are beautiful. I especially love your chocolate curls (are the pink curls made from white chocolate melted with pink food coloring in them? Just wondering, because I've never seen packaged pink curls.)

I really enjoy your blog and your cupcakes. I just stumbled upon you...and I would love to have a from-home cupcake/cake shop and catering business. Congrats to you for doing so!

Hi Cheryl Wray,

Thank you! The chocolate curls are bought off the shelves, not made from scratch by me.

Dream harder and your dreams of having a cupcake business might just come through! At least it did for me!
