Giant cupcakes with buttercream roses.

6 Mar

I love the look of the giant cupcake cakes when they are finished off with piped buttercream roses. They look so pretty, somehow delicate and oh so girly. Well you can imagine my joy when this week saw me making not one but two of these lovely (not so) little beauties.

This giant cupcake was a chocolate cake, filled with chocolate buttercream, topped with ivory coloured vanilla buttercream piped roses and finished off with solid milk chocolate flowers, that i made myself.

This giant cupcake was a chocolate cake filled with a chocolate and hazelnut filling, topped with pink vanilla buttercream piped roses and once again finished off with more of the milk chocolate flowers that i made.

Here is a closer look at the chocolate flowers.

Both of these giant cupcakes were presented in a solid milk chocolate base/cupcake liner that i made especially for the cakes to sit in. Although this should have been pretty straight forward, i had a slight problem with some small, hardly noticeable cracks that appeared in the chocolate liner. I suspect it may have been caused by the chocolate i used so next time i make these i will used a different chocolate and see if this helps.
