My daughter has decided she would like a 2ft x 3ft cupcake for her birthday cake! I have tried to reason...but I don't want to disappoint if there is a way I could do it. Does anyone have any ideas? The giant cupcake moulds are too small.

I thought about doing a foam shape and then covering it, but I'm worried that the candles might catch it and we'll end up with a disaster.

I must be mad.... icon_eek.gif

It's never too soon to teach your child they can't always get what they want!

Ace of Cakes did that at one time. He used a metal bucket like one of those you use as a cooler where you put bottles of beer and a lot of ice at a party or picnic... this sounds to be a big challenge for you. Or you can bake sheets and sheets of cake , stack them up and just carve it to a giant cupcake 2x3 feet.. your daughter is helping you right ?

I say buy the giant cupcake pan, make it and set it on top of a sheetcake and call it a day!

I would be tempted to either stack sheet cakes and carve as a previous poster said, or say "sorry hun but Mum can't do that- pick again!"

I saw that on Ace of Cakes.....was it not kind of hollow in the middle? And I seem to remember that the record got rescinded because the cake was baked in 2 bits?

As for my cake....I think I will either do the cupcake mould and make it on top of another, or make some small ones and then the big one on top. Or....maybe a pull apart cake in the shape of a cupcake (ie it will be 2D).

I think its maybe that time in her life when she realises that her mum is not in fact, Superwoman! *lol*
