Haha.
Actually yes the pan and the cake worked perfectly!
I suggest just spraying the pans with some PAM and then put a bit on flour in there.
And then it'll slide out without a problem!

I have one of these too and it is great, I think I have loaned it out to three different friends since I got it last March.  You can also use it to make a carousal looking cake among other things...  It is great!

That turned out so well!

You should totally rent that pan out for, like, two bucks a pop? Make back your investment?

I'm still a little hazy about how many people it feeds, and what it would look like when you cut it--does everybody have to get a gigantically tall piece, for instance, or do you take it apart, or something?

Pics, anybody?

Seeing a cupcake that big makes me feel faint! I don't even know why.
I get a sugar high just by looking at it.  Grin

Hi there!  I'm so excited - I was doing a SwagBucks search on my own name and found this post.  That's ME, I'm Darwinsfrg!  How awesome that you liked my giant cupcake and made your own!  I believe I used the same recipe for the icing that you did.  You did an awesome job and thanks for sharing the link to my photo!

I still can't believe this was posted 2yrs ago and I'm just now finding it.  SO COOL!!  :-D

So my mother and I saw this adorable cupcake pan on amazon.com, as well as Target.com.
It was called the Wilton Giant Cupcake Pan.
It is about 6 or 7 inches in diameter, it's not "HUGE" but it is pretty darn big.
So, others wondered how much to put into the cake. Some used 2 boxes of cake mix, others used one and a half boxes or "4 cups".  So, my mother and I used 2 3/4 cups for the bottom cake, and 1 3/4 cups for the top. And to bake the bottom (since the top cooks a lot faster than the bottom), you would bake the bottom for 10 minutes before adding the batter into the top.
Others did say that the cake came out with a dome top, they were right.
You just had to cut the top of the bottom, and the bottom of the top (did that confuse ya yet? xD) and then it is even.

So, we found this adorable cupcake by Darwinsfrg and loved the idea of the pink frosting.

Our frosting was a marshmallow buttercream.
It was 1 cup unsalted butter.
7.5 oz of marshmallow fluff
1  cup of confectionate sugar
and 1 tsp of vanilla (i am not sure on this last one)

Just add the coloring and whip it all together.

And in the end, it becomes this:

By the way, the red ontop was out version of the "cherry on top" that we don't have. It's just red frosting.

Hope you enjoyed this!

Aha. Well I really should thank YOU Darwingsfrg.
You were the one who made my mother inspited to want us to make the cupcake.

So thank you.

And thank you for telling me that I did a great job.
Oddly enough, after that, we didn't use the giant cupcake...
Maybe we'll get it out for my 20th birthday who knows?
It sure can feed many...
=D
