I made this Giant Cupcake cake for my 13th birhtday party over the summer.
I started by purchasing a Wilton cupcake pan and baked the cake in that. The flavor of the cake was funfetti. I let the cake cool and the next day I frosted the cake, one half at a time; the bottom was frosted and colored with a light purple tinted fondant and then the top, having been attached to the base, was frosted with pink vanilla frosting.
I piped the words "Happy 13th Birthday!" on the top of the cake with purple frosting. The little circles were made from tinted fondant that I had dyed using different food colorings.
I hope everyone enjoys making this cake. The total time taken to make this cake was about three hours.
My niece and nephew wanted a cupcakes for their combined Pirate birthday party so I decided they each needed their own special Homemade Giant Cupcake Birthday Cake. I didn't want to buy a pan so I used a round metal bowl for the top and a mini round pan for bottom. I used the mini round for the bottom and the cake I baked in metal bowl I used for the top since it was exactly like a cupcake top and used frosting to hold together.
Since I wanted it to look like a actual cupcake I used a coffee filter to get the appearance of a muffin liner. Then just frosted. For the decorations I used chocolate candy that I made, then just added pirate flags to look more Piratey.

This Homemade 3D Cupcake Birthday Cake was made for my daughter's birthday. It has 3 layers of strawberry cake with chocolate ganache filling and frosting. I stacked 3 of 6" cakes with filling inside and let it sit in fridge for a little while. Then I carved and shaped the cake in order to look like a giant cupcake.
After putting frosting on, I made indentations on the bottom part of cake to get cupcake liner look on it. I covered the top with pink fondant and added some big sprinkles on top. Topped the entire thing off with fondant "cream" and fondant "cherry".
I made this giant cupcake cake for my son's first birthday. He loved it and so did all of our guests. The bottom portion of the cake was made with half of a white cake, the top portion of the cake was made with about 3/4 of a chocolate cake mix.
I used different colors for the icing, baby blue, yellow, green, and red. For the candle I decided to use a big candlestick (not shown). It was a lot of fun making this cake for my baby boy!
I used the Wilton cupcake 3D pan. I also used nails as a heating core in the center so it would cook even. This Giant Cupcake Cake sits on a 10 in base cake. The checkerboard ribbon is from a craft store. The numbers and name are made from candy melts. The icing is buttercream.
I used black sprinkles and pink glitter gel for the top. Make sure you put a support board under the cupcake if you are going to stack it because it will tilt over!
