This giant cupcake was made for a birthday gal who is very much into cupcakes. Not that she likes to make them (she hardly cooks let alone bake) but she likes browsing at images of luscious cupcakes and drool over them. And I couldn't blame her. Cupcakes are cute, they are easy, and they are just the right serving size.

But for my dear friend, she deserves better.  That's why I made her this massive, giant cupcake.  She's the queen cupcake adored by the teeny ones.  And she gets the massive cherry on the top too.

There are different ways to make a giant cupcake.  There are giant cupcake pans that are available.  Usually it comes in two parts - the bottom part of the cupcake and the top.  Simply fill the two pans and bake the cake.  To construct the giant cupcake simply plop the top part to the bottom.  Easy!

I didn't have the giant cupcake pans and so I had to improvise.  I used half a ball cake pan and two - 6" round cakes.  Stack the two round cakes with the ball cake on top.  With a serrated knife, I carved the round cakes all around to taper the lower part.

I frosted lower part of the cake with chocolate buttercream. For the top, I used a metal spatula to spread pink buttercream. I used fondant to make the cherry and inserted a covered wire for the stem. I used red gel color mixed with a bit of lemon extract and brushed it on the fondant cherry.

For the cupcakes, I used a large star tip for the swirl on top. Add sprinkles.

Bite into it and enjoy!

Love lots,
