Giant cupcake - dressed!
Here is my 2nd giant cupcake made using the Nordic tin I posted about yesterday. I made a chocolate poundcake recipe this time and it came out lovely again.
It was a really moist recipe, I've heard lots of scare stories about the top of the cake overcooking and burning but both my attempts have been successful and I think the key is in cooking on a low heat for a long time (325f for 60-70mins).
This cake was requested by a client as a late easter present, the grass theme seems to be very successful at the moment so I am looking for a new decoarting challenge!
The butterfly and ladybird accents were made from homemade marshmallow fondant as I am trying to get to grips with using fondant more in my decorating. Roll on the next order!
