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!
