I made this giant cupcake cake for my daughter’s 1st Birthday that had a Champagne and Cupcakes Theme (obviously the champers wasn’t for the 1 year old!). The cake was a simple golden buttercake.
I made two large round cakes and then I simply stacked the 2 round cakes on top of each other. I put buttercream icing between the two cakes and then simply shaved the cakes into the required shape. I sat the molded cake on top of an up-turned cake tin to gain more height, which I covered with the patty pan.
The outside icing was buttercream icing also, covered with pink smarties, pink sprinkles and the pink number one candle to top it off! The mock patty pan was made from wrapping paper.
This cake was a huge hit with everyone and whilst it took some effort it was well worth it and I would still classify it as a fairly easy cake to make.
