I never really paid much attention to the super giant cupcake cakes. They are cute, but a $30 pan to make one thing? Not that cute. Then my neighbor found a the Big Top Cupcake pan at work for $5 so I had her pick me one up.
This cake was for my son's 2nd birthday. I figure this is the last year I'll have any say over a theme and I wanted to use the pan so I made him a big cupcake. Unfortunately, I was so concerned about the cake being done in the middle, that I way over baked it. I used this recipe from Annie's Eats for yellow cake and chocolate frosting. The frosting was divine! I'm sure the cake is just fine if you don't kill it!
