Last week we had a little baking marathon. A couple years ago I was asked if I could bake some goodies for a bake sale fundraiser to help a little boy. Well, this year I was asked to bake again, only this time it was for the SafeHouse of Denver, which helps out women and children who are victims of domestic violence. I was more organized this year. I measured everything out the night before, so I could start baking right away the next day. This why having so much Pyrex comes in handy. ;)
I had a couple helpers for the cinnamon rolls. Yes, that's a stick of butter on each batch. That's what makes these rolls so good! You really should make them. You'll never buy cinnamon rolls again.
Did I mention that these rolls are huge? They rise like you wouldn't believe. The frosting is pretty fantastic as well.
The Vanilla Chai cupcakes were a huge hit at the bake sale. You should make them. . . that is, if you like chai.
I have to thank my local King Soopers for supplying me with all the packaging. Since it is graduation season I wasn't able to get specific cupcake packaging. Those grocery stores get a little stingy over them around this time of year. To keep the cupcakes from moving around, I melted a little chocolate and put a little dot underneath each cupcake. It was just like glue! It worked out quite well, but one does need to be careful, even still. Most of them stayed, but a few tipped over.
