I am looking for help with decorating ideas for a cake. I am using the WIlton Giant Cupcake (3D) pan. I was trying to look for pictures also but there are so many it was getting tough to wade through them all. It's not really for anything except that I want to try it out before I HAVE to use it and I will be taking the cake to a family reunion this weekend. I don't know how to frost the top and like I said couldn't find any pictures for ideas... Help! lol

Hi forgetmeknot,

I recently got this pan myself and have only used it once. I really enjoyed it. I was able to find some pics on cc when I searched for giant cupcake. I will attemp to attach a picture of the one I made. I used the largest round tip I had. I can't remember the number. I know it wasn't the standard 12 I use alot. It was much bigger. Maybe 300 and something. Anyway, I used my cake icer tip for the bottom and smoothed it with a Viva paper towel after it crusted and used a dowel to give the look of the cupcake wrapper. Then I just went round and round with the round tip to make the little tip at the top. the littel banner was made of gumpaste. I hope that helped!

I did one a few weeks ago. I made rosettes all over the top with a 1M or something very similar, and I liked the way it looked. It's in my photos.
