Who doesn’t love a giant cupcake?! I recently got this cake mould which makes a giant cupcake! I was intrigued. I’ve had one of these moulds before, but when I took the cake out of the oven to check it, it fell on the floor and I never tried it again, until now when I decided to give it another go.

Giant Cupcake Mould

I used my usual cake recipe, which can be found on my cake pop post (here).

This time, I decided to add cocoa powder (I didn't measure it) so I could have a chocolate cake.

We only had 3 eggs, which meant I couldn't fill my moulds to the top, so next time I will double the recipe. Also, due to the size of the cake I baked this for around an hour.

The top of the cake crumbled a bit when I tipped it out, but I knew I could cover that in icing.

To make the base of the cake, I re-filled the mould with melted white chocolate and a bit of food colouring, then let it set in the fridge. I only half filled my mould, as the cake was only half the size it should have been.

I then iced my cake using the Wilton 1M nozzle, and my favourite icing bags. These are really heavy duty and I've never had a problem with them. You can buy them here.

I placed the cake inside the chocolate mould, then piped some chocolate buttercream roses onto it. I think it looks pretty good, but it tastes even better! The roses are super easy to do, I've done a post on that too which you can read here.

I can't wait to try more cakes like this. The colour possibilities and designs are endless, and they make a great birthday cake. I might even try a Christmas design with a red chocolate bottom and green icing! I'm excited already.
