holy cupcake, batman!


My friend Melanie showed me this giant cupcake cake last week. Can you believe your eyes? Wouldn't this be a delightful birthday cake? It would be so much fun to decorate, that's for sure. It's available at Sur La Table here.

Seeing this cupcake reminded me of a line of ornaments and decorations that I'd been considering adding to the holiday offerings. Won't these be fun? What do you think? Should I order them?

Pass me a slice of that cupcake!! Adorable. I think Wilton sells a similar pan?
I have a little kitchen Xmas tree which gets decked out in "not edible" treats... these ornies are soooo adorable. Yep, order them!

Hi Amy,
I love those cute ornaments! We would definitely buy some. They would make great little gifts, too!

What is it about cupcakes that brings an instant smile to everyone's faces? I love the giant cupcake! I'm picturing it used as a wedding cake for when I get married in about 50 years.

cup cakes are somehow just a little bit selfish (just enough for me) and a winky bit naughty (i think it's a boob thing) - and of course there is getting to eat something sugary that is overly decorative.

Amy, those are absolutely adorable! I love them. And that big cupcake is making me wish for one..a slightly smaller version.

What an adorable cake! I wonder if could do that similar to the Barbie cakes made in the huge measuring cups. You could do a layer cake with an upside down version of the Barbie dress. Hmmm - I smell a baking experiment.

My daughter saw the picture of the giant cupcake cake and is freaking out!!!!!! She is begging for one for her birthday! Thanks for sharing the link!

I LOVE the cupcake decorations!!! I think they would be a great addition to your shop! Hint, hint! :)

Like Grace, I'm going to try this without the expensive pan. We all have those barbie-dress pans somewhere, don't we? My husband Ben's birthday is on the 24th and he would love a giant lemon cupcake.

As for the ornaments, yum!

The enormous cupcake is such a great idea. Why didn't anyone think of that before?
