Hi all,
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 icon_smile.gif

I fill mine with
8 eggs
16 oz flour
16oz sugar
16oz butter

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:
