time to sell the cupcakes

Check out the Cheerios wearing their new aprons made over the summer break by Daisy Duke and her Grandma. They were pretty pumped to wear them and look professional at the first cupcake sale this past weekend.

On Friday night there was a work bee at Saucy's house. Roxy and Blondie whipped up ten batches of buttercream frosting while JWOWW, Loopy and Beegie scooped and baked 240 cupcakes.

On Saturday morning, bright and early, this crew met in the kitchen of the community centre and worked like a well-oiled machine to decorate and assemble the cupcakes and get the display ready.

It doesn't take long to decorate 240 cupcakes if you have a plan and most of the people have experience. Only one rookie joined the crew this time, the plan is to assimilate the rookies a few at a time and then everyone will be trained as cupcake apprentices.

Once the megaphone and poms were put out, everyone at the Christmas Craft Market knew where the profits were going.

The best part? The Cheerios sold out... all 240 cupcakes were gone, gone, gone.

The Rookie posed for a shot with the Cheerios' Signature cupcake: a green velvet vanilla sponge with golden buttercream and a Teddy Graham bear, of course!

The Dirty Blonde cupcake is vanilla sponge with chocolate buttercream and pink sprinkles.

Of course, Saucy's Signature Cupcake was on hand: chocolate fudge with strawberry buttercream and sprinkles.

The red velvet cupcakes were a hit, too!

Whoops... okay, so the Cheerios need to work a bit on their quality control, the miniature Oreo is upside down on this Oreo Cupcake. They sold fast anyway.

Saucy and Mustang Sally are extremely proud of the girls. Everyone worked together so perfectly... not a single cupcake was less than saleable after they did their work. They are turning into quite the little bakers. Plus, the kitchen was slightly cramped quarters for eight people and nobody got frazzled. Everyone remained single-minded in their goal to have the table up and running on time. The kitchen was probably cleaner after they were done with it than before they found it, by the way.

Saucy forgot that she left her camera unattended while she looked after some other things... like looking for a strong cup of coffee.

Look at that! All proceeds from cupcake sales will help the Cheerios travel to the Provincial Cheerleading Championships in March.

There are two more cupcake sales this weekend and that will be it for November. If you are local and would like the Cheerios to provide cupcakes for your Christmas event in November, please email Saucy at sasha {dot} libby {at} shaw {dot} ca and she can give you information on pricing and delivery.

If you are attending Saskatchewan Scraps or the Christmas Shopping Spree on Konihowski Road this weekend and would like cupcakes set aside for pickup at either event, please let Saucy know. The Cheerios will be on hand at both events peddling their sugar highs!

Tell the Cheerios that they did a great job! They greeted the princesses right away and were very friendly. As the girls sat and enjoyed their little cakes, I noticed that they were great ambassadors and indeed worked well! Well done ladies!! The princesses are checking out the cupcakes for me to bring home from Sask Scraps!

Great job Cheerios - you are champions in all you undertake! The cupcakes look delicious & the girls look like they had a great time.

Brenda said...

such a great fundraiser, you even make the work part of your cheer team fun! Just wondering re: your slightly cramped kitchen, if you have a bigger team this year could you use a school Food sciences classroom -- more ovens & space...Wishing your team all the best in the coming year!

My 15 year old son was looking over my shoulder when I was reading this post. He asked who those girls were and I said they are cheerleaders from Saskatoon and he said "Saskatoon, too bad", ha ha!! Beautiful girls and yummy looking cupcakes, no wonder you sold out!
