I have seen giant cupcakes when I have been shopping in town. There is a gorgeous cupcake stall which sells all manner of beautiful cupcakes, which are works of art. It almost seems a shame to eat them. I often wondered how difficult it was to make a giant cupcake and when I was lucky enough to win this giant cupcake tin I had to try.
I had never realised that the cakes were made in two halves, top and bottom. It is a good idea as it allows you to sandwich them together with buttercream and make the cake more interesting. The tin didn’t come with any recipes, all it said was use a six egg cake mix. I decided to try a plain vanilla sponge for my first attempt and see how it turned out.
This is the recipe I used:

The icing can be used in the middle of the cupcake and over the top. My son had great fun decorating this cupcake, I think he found every cake decoration that we had in the cupboard and used it.
I will definitely be trying this again and maybe get more adventurous and try a different flavour. The cake was lovely with a cup of tea.
