I'm trying to price cupcakes and have figured out how much batter I need but am unsure about icing. Does anyone have any ball park amounts for minis, regular and jumbos? I'm trying to save myself time (and pounds) by not having to make up batches of each to measure
The Matrix shows 2 cups of frosting for 24 minis.
I don't think that jumbo would take much more than standard, would it? Isn't most of the extra cake in the height, not the area of the surface to be frosted?
I think the answer to this is going to vary considerably depending on how you apply the frosting.
This gives me a general ballpark anyway to work with.
1M swirl = 1/4 cup. So 4 cuppies per 1 cup of BC. If I'm going to ice 300 cupcakes, then I'd need 75 cups of BC.
My 1M swirl may be taller than yours, so that's why it is important to decorate one the way you normally would then measure how much BC you used. You may quickly decide that a smaller swirl will work just as fine as a great big tall swirl.
"Icing amount for 400 cupcakes???"
(Also, this thread has a start date of 2009, but the info is still good. Between the 2 threads you should have all the info you'll need.)
