How to Make a Giant Cupcake


This is the Wilton's Giant Cupcake pan. It's really easy to do and wasn't complicated like I thought it would be. I did do a few changes as how much to put in the top part of the pan (3 cups instead of 4 1/2 cups).



This is the cake recipe that I used:




Preheat oven to 325 degrees.


I Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Cake mix (or any flavor)
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 small box Devil's Food instant pudding (or one that will compliment your cake flavor)
pinch of salt


Mix dry ingredients well. In another bowl, mix:
4 jumbo eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 1/3 cup whole milk
1 cup butter, melted


Mix for 30 seconds and then for 2 minutes on medium speed. Put 3 cups batter in top section. 4 cups in bottom section or just to a little over half full

Bake for 45 - 60 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Frost and decorate as desired!!


For this cupcake, I used the chocolate icing recipe that comes on the can of Hershey's Cocoa. It's really yummy! Icing was put on before the top layer was added. Then I used a cream cheese icing and used a 1M tip to swirl it on. The decorations are made of fondant flower cutouts.

***And a handy tip from Mame ***

One thing I tell my students who may have hot hands...and/or also tend to trim their pastry bags too much [where a coupler slips right through] --

Instead of throwing those bags away, place it over another bag that has the coupler fitted right -It acts like a double insulation!
