I just bought the wilton giant cupcake pans this week so these directions are straight off of the packaging.
Prepare the pan by generously greasing the inside cups with solid vegetable shortening using a pastry brush or spraying with vegetable pan spray. Sprinkle flour into pan and shake to cover all surfaces.Turn pan over and tap to remove excess flour. Touch up with more shortening and flour if any shiny spots remain or use baking cups as an alternative. For muffins, prepare the pan by lightly greasing only the bottom of cups or use baking cups.
Fill each cup 1/2 - 2/3 full of batter. One 2-layer cake mix yields about 12 jumbo cupcakes.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-22 minutes or until they test done according to recipe directions.
It's probably more info. than you needed but I wanted to make sure you got the instructions you needed. HTH.

Are you looking for the one giant cupcake or the multiple "mini" giant cupcakes? I did the one huge cupcake yesterday and I only used the spray w/flour in it and only bake @ 325. It takes a while to get it done. I used a flower nail in the middle of the bottom part of the cupcake to help distribute the heat. I didn't use it the first couple of times, but I will from now on. Makes a big difference. I think I baked it for 35 minutes or so. Just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get too done. HTH

I just saw that the directions I gave you are for the Jumbo cupcakes. Sorry if you were looking for the directions for the Giant Cupcake pan.

I made this cake for my daughter's 13th Hawaiian themed birthday party. I didn't recall the actual instructions, but I just cooked it as the instructions for the batter called for. One thing that I did have to do though, was to cook one layer at a time. The bottom part of the "cupcake" takes longer than that top because it takes more batter. So I cooked the bottom layer and then poured the top layer and cooked it. Just something that I had experienced. Good luck!

I just baked the Wilton Giant cupcake last night, and it turned out great. I do grease the pan alot with homemade cake release and bake it at 325 for about 40 minutes.

This time I made two boxes of mix and filled the bottom with 3 1/2 cups and the top with 3 cups and made cuppies with the extra. I did put the pan in the oven with the bottom of the cake towards the back of the oven and the top towards the door. Seem to work better and not overcooking the top. threw the extra cuppies in with 22 minutes left and all went over very well. hth
