That's a lot of butter...

Out of curiosity, I flipped through the Baking with Julia cookbook last night to get familiar with what things I'll be making during this challenge. As I did, I tallied up the amounts of flour and butter required by the recipes. Including the breads, pastries, fillings and icings (and one massive wedding cake, though I may skip that one :P ), by the end of this challenge I will have used roughly 75 pounds of flour and 40 pound of butter.

Let me repeat that last bit.... 40 pounds of butter. Dear lord. I think I need to go do some sit-ups...
