Engagement cakes

This past weekend, A's brother had an engagement party and I went a little crazy making cakes: 64 cupcakes and a two-tiered layer cake to be precise. It was a lot of fun!

For someone that does not usually make cakes, it was good to try out different recipes and new techniques.

Although I searched around to a lot of different cooking and baking blogs and websites, in the end I went with the recipes in the old standby, The Joy of Cooking. You cannot go wrong with the classics and these were certainly popular!

I made lemon cupcakes with a lemon cream cheese frosting and a two-tiered white cake with a raspberry whipped cream filling and buttercream icing.
