so i saw this awesome giant cupcake pan and i HAD to get it edit: i saw this cupcake pan on a u.s blog and spent ages looking for an aussie supplier. i usually buy my cake pans from Cake Deco but i just happened to find the pan on ebay from the EXACT same company using an ebay store! and half the things i bought from them were cheaper! bah go forth kids! Cake Deco Ebay check back every now and then cos atm the cupcake pan aint there

ive attempted creating a giant cupcake by carving a cake which kinda didnt work out cos the crumbs went everywhere so thought id give this a go… ready?

grease the pan with HEAPS of cooking oil or your cake will become stuck and youll lose the details.

i was reading some forums where ppl have said the top bit of the cupcake bakes faster than the bottom because its smaller and theres less batter in there so i put another pan half filled with water under the lid

level the cakes…

dig a hole…

and fill with cream! mmm cream and i chucked in some mango and peach

heh reassemble

and ice away! i let the base un-iced so you could see the details of the ridges lol this pan is awesome and ill most likely use it to make jelly too…



  1. Hi Suze,

    I love that Cupcake Pan. Where did you purchase it from?

  2. That’s so cool! I’d love to see a photograph of the finished cupcake against something that we can measure its size with, just to emphasise how big it is. :)

  5. Looks so cool! Who are the lucky people who got to tuck in to it? You should’ve taken a picture of it next to a normal sized cupcake, for comparison! :)

  10. oho that cone-like structure is the TOP! What a waste of the real top of the cupcake! To be honest I thought the ‘cone’ looked more like a nipple in the first picture….. lol hehe
