Ok, so a client asked me to make her daughters 3rd birthday cake in two weeks. The first two designs she showed me were things I had complete confidence in making. Now she sent me a third pic of a cake that I feel somewhat confident in making, the only challenging part to me would be the cupcake on top. Does anyone here know how that would be done? I am thinking a ten inch on bottom, then an eight inch on top, then I'm totally lost on how to make the cupcake. The cake I would make would be done in buttercream with fondant accents. Thanks for any help!!! I believe she got this pic off the internet so I can't give credit where credit is due.

Well to me it looks like they used the giant cupcake pan from Wilton. I'm sure you could look on their sight and see if that's the one. HTH icon_biggrin.gif

either the wilton cc pan or a 6 in round carved down with a small flower pan on top rounded off. Very cute cake. Good luck with it!

I have seen some cupcake cakes that used a rice krispie treat to mold the cupcake shape out of and then ice as normal and just do cake on the bottom tiers. This cake may too big to do that, though.
