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
- 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.
