I was asked to make a cake for a friend’s birthday (it’s a surprise)…. but not just any cake. A giant cupcake cake. I borrowed the Wilton cupcake pan and made a practice cake. This is the one you see here. I’m hoping the birthday girl will take a picture of the actual cake (as my camera died).
This bad boy is huge, but very pretty… At least in my opinion. But cupcakes are like crack to me, so maybe I’m biased. Cutting a slice of this definitely leads to a sugar high, but it’s worth it.
The cake is lemon, with a light lemon buttercream. There is a layer of raspberry filling between the top and bottom. I made a cute little fondant rose for the top.
