LOVE. As a professional baker, I get so tired of wearing the gross, scratchy white aprons provided by work, so having this while baking in the kitchen for 9 hours would certainly be lovely!

Super easy...

At my bakery here in SF, CA we freeze cupcakes when we have a large order. Doesn't necessarily have to be airtight, Saran wrap covering the cupcakes on a baking sheet will work and will give you more space.

As for the frosting: buttercream is possibly the worst frosting to travel with already assembled on cupcakes. I suggest either keeping the buttercream cold (not frozen) on the drive and then microwaving it at 10 sec intervals when you arrive and are ready to frost.

No need for a bulky cupcake carrier. Go to a Cash and Carry and buy a box off of them (will fit 40 frosted) or go to your local bakery (even in a grocery store) and ask for a bakery box.

Good luck!

On a typical (weekday) morning, before even stepping foot out of bed, I grab my Macbook and head straight to Emily's blog. I just feel like she embodies everything I love! It's so nice to finally see her home in more detail... and it's perfect! I swoon at the wood beams and the little architectural details.

I've been asking for the Cuisinart one for EVER, but this looks like a much better quality blender! This would be the best tool to make quick homemade potato soup or Aioli!

I love my old Oreck, but it's starting to die out, and with a 90lb Long-Haired German Shepherd, a reliable vacuum is definitely a must! This is sweet!

I absolutely LOVE this idea; However, most of the medallions I've found have holes in them! I like the idea of putting a mirror in some of the holes, but I don't want to have them all hole-y.
