Serious Eats: Talk
My friend wants me to host a baking party, and I was curious if anyone out there has ever hosted one. I'd prefer to have my friends not just ice and decorate cupcakes (we're adults!), but also have a hand in the flavors and actually baking the items as well.
How did you organize your party?
Did you stick to only one type of baked good (cupcakes, cookies, etc) and recipe?
Which recipes did you choose?
How can I keep the costs down, so I'm not buying every flavor chip, candy bar, extract, etc?
