We have an order for a grooms cake for June. They want a hostess cupcake, the choc kind with the white swirl on the top. I have seen pic in the gallery of them but I'm really drawing a blank on how to make a cake that is that big and tall but not layers. The outside needs to look like cake and not show laters.

I have no clue how to do it. Any ideas?

I think you could cover it with chocolate fondant with a texture pressed into it to look like cake. A light coating of crisco would help too...Then cut another fondant circle for the top, a smooth one to look like the icing sitting on top of the rougher-textured cake part.

Wilton has a large cupcake pan that make a monster cupcake. It has the ribbing of a cupcake liner so you'd have to ice it smooth. The cupcake is baked in two parts, but you won't have to put the "lid" on it. However, you would have the tapered shape of a hostess cake and the smooth top without have to carve it. I just bought the pan and can't wait to use it!
