Starwars giant cupcake.

24 Oct

This has got to be my all time most favourite Giant cupcake that i have ever made. The bottom of the cupcake (the cupcake liner cake) was covered in icing and then sprayed with edible silver shimmer spray for a more metallic appearance. As the cake was for a girl i piped a rose swirl design all over the top of the cake using blue buttercream. Silver stars and edible images were used to decorate the top of the cake, which was then finished off with lots of edible glitter.

Bug themed Giant cupcake.

Well this Giant cupcake is certainly not as pretty as the ones on my last blog post but it is definitely different and it was a cool cake to make. I made this giant cupcake for someone who has an interest in bugs and they loved it!

 This Giant cupcake was a chocolate cake that was filled with chocolate buttercream. The base of the cake was covered in a chocolate flavoured fondant icing to make the cupcake case/liner. All of the insects, worms and bugs were made out of fondant/sugarpaste icing and everything was edible on this cake.

What would go perfectly with a bug themed giant cupcake, i hear you ask. Well, what better than bug themed cupcakes.

The cupcakes were vanilla cupcakes filled with vanilla buttercream. Half of the cupcakes were topped with piped green buttercream to resemble grass and the other half were made to look like they had soil on top of them. The cupcakes were then finished off with an icing bug/insect.

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.
