Meet the Giant Cupcake

We've all seen giant cookies before, but have you seen the giant cupcake?  It's a special mold that makes a huge cupcake that looks just like the smaller version!

A giant cupcake can be frosted to resemble a regular cupcake or you add one to a regular sheet cake for an amazing creation.  Finished cupcake measurements are approximately 7-1/4 by 7-1/2 inches.

The pan can be purchased at Amazon.com for just under $25.  A giant cupcake pan consists of 2 molds - the bottom of the cupcake and the top. Before constructing your giant cupcake, a good idea is to put a layer of frosting between each half so you are less likely to have slippage during frosting.

Below are some of my favorite giant cupcake creations, found on Flickr.com.
