I'm not sure if this will work or not, but what about doing 2 12 in rounds for the base and then put a 14 inch on top with another 12, 10, 8, 6 etc and carve the top rounded to look like the cupcake top. Could you use the SPS system to secure the tiers?

That would be a big darn cupcake!!!

I have one coming up at the end of the month, I plan on doing an 8in with a 9 inch round on top of that, dowel that and put a 9 inch with a soccer ball pan on top of that. Trim it all down and go from there. Good luck with yours icon_smile.gif

andiesweet,
The soccer ball on top is a great idea, so you would do a coule or 3 layer for the bottom of the cupcake and then a one or two 9 inch on top with a soccer ball on top? thanks.

I have done one these before. Let me say this, it will be huge!!! The bottom of it was 8". Then I did a 9" and then 10" to get the "cup" part of it. Kept going 2 more layers 10" then ended with a 9". the top three layers were for carving. We had about 20 people at the party(all ate cake) I basically took off the top half and served that first. Less than half the cake was gone. So we continued to have people over to celebrate DD bday. about 15 more people came throughout the week, still not gone. my slices were about twice as big as wedding servings. HTH

I have done 2 giant cupcake cakes. One would be for a girl, and one for a boy. They are in my pics. These cakes resemble more of a hostess style but very huge! Take a peek and see if this is what you are needing and I would be happy to give you instructions. I have had a few requests on how to make these for a groom, so they can adapt to any style party. icon_smile.gif

bellejoey, I think I'm blind, I didn't see your giant cupcakes under your photoes, I just saw the hostess cupcake one. The hostess one is amazing. If you don't mind, please send me the instructions on how to make them. Debbie does cakes ones are amazing as well. I wonder how she did the top part all the swirls on top?

I did one last week for the first time too. I used a 9-10-10-9 and carved it down. It's not in my pics yet, will maybe upload it later today. They wanted to serve 40 and it was HUGE!!!
