I was so excited when I finally bought a giant cupcake pan almost two years ago, sad to say this is the first time I've ever used it. For my first giant cupcake though I am so happy with how this cake turned out.
I was asked to make a giant cupcake and 80 matching regular sized cupcakes for a 21st birthday party. The birthday girl only really asked one thing, that it all be in super bright colours, no pastels in sight.
For the cake I used my favourite vanilla cake layered and frosted with cookies and cream buttercream, the outside of the cake was covered with rolled fondant and more fondant for the decorations. The cupcakes were vanilla with vanilla buttercream, topped with fondant cut-outs and maraschino cherries.
