MyCupcakes biggest order to date!

Ruby ordered two hundred (200) yes.... you read it correctly... 200 pieces of MyCupcakes for a wedding reception to be held in.... BINTULU!!!

When she first text-ex me about the order, the first thing that came to mind is that how is she going to carry all those 200 pieces of MyCupcakes to Bintulu?! I am of course up to the challenge of completing this order as this is MyCupcakes' biggest order to date.

The challenges are as follows:

First, the amount of order (inclusive of time of baking).
Second, the transportation
Third, the storage
Fourth, the decoration
Fifth, the packaging

Initially, the arrangement was to have the cupcakes packaged individually using the individual plastic container with dome lid which I have but then again I suggested to Ruby that to use plastic container which flat lid would be better as we would be able to stack the individual packaging in boxes and that would be easier for transporting the same on board a plane to Bintulu and also counting the journey to their house.

Ruby requested swirl and flower themed cupcakes for the wedding door gift.

What an experience?! Alhamdulillah I manage to deliver on time and I think Ruby heard my sigh of relief all the way in Bintulu when she told me that the cupcakes have arrived safely and in good condition.
So here they are:

The decoration

The swirl design
This is MyCupcakes' first official design... simple yet classy...
Me like-y.. one of my fav decos!
