I can be done, but you'd better have enough pans and mixing bowls to cook a couple dozen cupcakes, or multiple sheet cakes at a time. I had to make my stuff on a four-burner gas stove-top, and a small oven. Thankfully, the owner of the home that I worked in had a spare refrigerator in the garage, so I could store deserts as they were completed.

Yes, it's odd how people who have no experience of large scale catering think they are making it easy for you by requesting "a few cakes"

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
