Giant Cupcake

I’ve always (well, recently) wanted to make a Giant Cupcake, so when I saw this mould in Tesco last week, for only €9.99, I nearly wet myself with excitement.

It’s a silicone mould that comes in two parts, top and bottom, that you fill with your chosen cake batter. I must admit here that I cheated, and used a box of Betty Crocker. (It is yummy though). I have a problem with my oven at the moment, which means I can’t use it until the boys are in bed, so I was pushed for time.

There is also a nifty little insert with the mould, which allows you to put a filling inside the cake after it has been baked. I used white chocolate sauce, which was a bit runny, but still tasted good.
After assembling the cupcake, I decorated it with white chocolate buttercream and milk chocolate buttons.
Et Voila!

Really simple, but very effective, and most of all, delicious!
