Large Cupcake Party Cake Mini Tutorial

Below I have shown a little mini tutorial on how I made this Large Cupcake Cake. I borrowed a mould from my friend because I didn't see the point in buying one just for this one cake.  I cheated in that I bought most of the things ready made but I have never said I am a cook. This was the first Party Cake that I have ever made, it may not be perfect but I was pleased with my results considering I have never done this before!


  • Cupcake Mould
  • 4 Boxes of Cake Mixture (I think I needed eggs for this!)
  • Apricot Jam
  • Ready Made Icing Block
  • Ready Made Frosting
  • Marzipan
  • Chocolate Sweets for decoration
  • Sprinkles for decoration
  • Food coloring

 My Mini Tutorial:
  • I greased the two large cupcake moulds.
  • I used 2 cupcake packet mixes inside each mould. 
  • I cooked in the oven - I reduced the heat a little and cooked for longer as the instructions on the box were for small cupcakes!
  • Once cooked take out and allow to cool down.
  • I had to trim a bit of the cake to make them even and flat to balance on top of each other properly.
  • I placed white icing over the bottom of the cake. I then added pink icing strips to the bottom of the cake. ( I copied instructions from youtube videos on how to icing!)
  • I placed pink icing onto the top of the cake (I should have left it white as I ended up decorating over the top later!)
  • Then using apricot jam in the middle I secured the top of the cake to the bottom of the cake.
  • Then I added the frosting onto the top of the cake. I tried to make swirls with the frosting bag but it turned out terrible - So I used a fork and swirled the whole cake with that!
  • I then added sprinkles to the top of the cake.
  • I also added the remaining frosting to the plate that the cake was standing on.
  • I then decorated the cake with chocolate buttons and flowers.
  • I rolled a piece of coloured marzipan into a ball and placed this on the top of the cake as a cherry.
