Are you doing a square/rectangle cupcake cake, or a shaped one?

I used to work at a grocery and had to make tons of these, and I think the best advice I could give is to set out the cupcakes in the shape you want, then pick them up one by one and use a little icing to secure them down. If it's warm, you may want to stick it in the fridge for a few minutes to set the icing after this step.

Use a large cupcake tip (like Wilton's 1M, I think) to make a swirl of icing to fill in the gaps between the cupcakes, and create a (relatively) level surface. Then you can use the big icer tip, if you like, or just plop the icing down and smooth it out as you would for a normal cake. From then on, it's just like a normal cake, only you only have to decorate the top icon_smile.gif

Hope this helps!

Here is a tutorial that I used when I started making cupcake cakes. The person that made this tutorial used to post on CC but hasnt in a while. The instructions are great.
