500 Cupcake Challenge

December 4, 2007 at 4:08 PM | Posted in 500CC, cupcakes | 12 Comments

My most recent cupcake purchase is a book – 500 Cupcakes by Fergal Connolly. 


Not all of them are sweet (I’d say they are more muffins IMO) and there are variations to cupcakes recipes (ie switching out one ingredient for another) which I assume still counts as another cupcake.  I am not positive that there are 500 cupcakes (since its not numbered) and rather than take his word for it I decided to create the Cuppycakes 500 Cupcake Challenge.

My goal is to make a different cupcake from the 500 cupcake book.   Now I know that 500 cupcakes are ALOT of cupcakes!  I already figured out if I make a different one each week it would take me almost 10 years!!  and since life happens, I know it aint happening every week so we’ll see how many of the 500 I actually make… but the process should be fun!

Stay tuned for the first challenge…
