Giant Cupcake Cake

As a wedding gift, we received a silicone bakeware set that produces a giant cupcake! These pans are so much fun.

I used the chocolate cake recipe from the Black Forest Cake because I knew it would hold up well to being stacked, and it is a really good chocolate cake recipe.

I made a well in the middle of the bottom layer and filled it up with vanilla pudding by special request.  And then I added purple sprinkles, simply because I could.

After I crumb coated the two pieces and let them chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes, I couldn't wait to start decorating it!

The bottom layer is a ruffle-technique that I originally saw on It is actually pretty easy, and I think it looks quite cute on this giant cupcake.  I put both lilac and white buttercream in the piping bag to get a two-toned effect. These ruffles were made with a Wilton 104 tip.

For the top of the giant cupcake, I decided to cover it with roses. We learned how to make these simple roses in my Wilton decorating class to cover cupcakes, but I never thought of covering a whole cake with them until I saw a cake made by Amanda of IAmBaker.  It is such a simple technique, but it looks awesome! 

I made these roses with a Wilton 1M tip, and then sprinkled on some pink sanding sugar for fun.

I am really happy with how this turned out! It is intensely girly and cute, which was perfect because I was making it for our girl's movie night last week.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
