84 Mini Banana Bread loafs with banana frosting topped with toasted walnuts
99 Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
100 GIANT chocolate chip cookies
I wish I knew or wrote down how much time I spent in the kitchen. But it was an unGodly amount of time. The cookies alone took 22 minutes a batch and I could only cook 7 at a time!
Thats over 5 hours of just BAKING time for the just the cookies.
My one little standard size oven needs a rest. Yes I was offered tons of help in the kitchen, did I accept anyones offer??? No. Do I ever accept help? Rarely! Its my own way to torture myself. Fun huh?
To get this all done in time for the party on Friday and Saturday, it took planning.
I made all the banana breads on Tuesday. I added a tiny bit of vegetable oil to the mix to keep the moisture level up. I baked them on Monday and Tuesday. Then I wrapped them individually in tin foil then put them in Tupperware and stored them in the freezer.
On Wednesday, I made the red velvet cupcakes. they are super moist, so I knew there would be noooo problem with them in an airtight container in the fridge. I baked all of the cookies on Thursday, Friday and some on Saturday morning.
Phew, that’s a whole lotta baking!
A bunch of you asked how much I charged or how much they paid me?
NADA! I didn’t charge nor did I get paid a single cent! I truly did it for the opportunity and the challenge to see if I could pull it all off.
I wish I had some good Hollywood Celebrity gossip to spill, but I don’t.
I was at the event all day long and left each day around 6 ish. It turns out that all of the “famous” people showed up after I left. There were tons of NFL players and their wives and lots of high profile executives that I met. I still had a ball!
I would do it again in a second.
I got a few marriage proposals because of my goodies, however I had to respectfully decline! 😉
