I have seen a few designs with fondant on top instead of buttercream etc.. How do you place the fondant on top while having another colour for the base? Do you decorate the 2nd piece of the giant cupcake seperately before you place it on top?
misscake, they are done separately. i have made them together with just buttercream and candy melts for the bottom, and then with fondant for both. when i did the fondant, i didnt put the 2 pieces toether until they were both covered with fondant. then ice the base and put the top on. its eaiser that way because when u serve it u have to take it apart anyway.
Thanks for your reply. I didn't realise that you have to take it apart before serving. Do you have to do that even if you cover the whole cake with buttercream?
yes, would reccommend it, its just too big to cut all at one time. since it comes in 2 pieces, thats how i would start. worked fine.
Are giant cupcake tins all the same size no matter what brand you get? I recently ordered the mould.
There are giant cupcake tins and there are giant cupcake cake pans (2 pcs.).
I bought a giant silicone cupcake mould?
thats the one i have, its the same size as the wilton pan. works well.
It says for you to spray the non-stick oil spray into it. I don't have that at home right now, can I just spead some vegatable oil with a brush? Is there any other tips you can give me and if there any errors in the instructions for this mould, I would appreciate it if you can let me know
i dont know about the veg oil, i have always used cake release or bakers secret. the top cooks faster then the bottom, i took it out like 15 min before the bottom. let it cool completely (i put it in freezer for an hour) before u frost. and good luck!
