Not sure if this is the correct place to post this query so my apologies if it's wrong.
My husband has order a Giant Cup Cake tin for me today as a gift which I'm very excited about but a little concerned on what mix to use. I've had disasters with trying to upsize my normal sponge mix previously!
Does anyone have a fail safe recipe (pref in UK measures) that they could suggest please?
Many Thanks in advance
I fill mine with
16 oz flour
Cream butter and sugar, slowly add egg then flour.
Grease tin very well!
Hope that helps
Not sure how much it holds but when I made mine I baked the bottom and top together. The top ended up overcooked and I didn't like that the bottom was browned on the edges (I usually using baking strips and line it with parchment paper so they aren't usually browned).
I would suggest baking the top and bottom separately, it's more work and washing up but it produces better cakes.
In the end, I chucked the bottom, redid the top and made a casing using candy melts. I then baked a couple of layers of 4" and 6" round and trimmed them so they would fit inside the casing. (I think it was 1 x 4" (1-1.5" high) and 2 x 6" (1-1.5" high)
This is how mine turned out: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2034440
