I got a giant cupcake mould for Christmas and last week was the first time I tried it out for RB's Birthday!
I am sometimes a little lazy with cake making and buy my frosting from the shop, but this time I made it all from scratch and decorated it using my piping bag set which I also got for Christmas. It is a plain vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream, topped off with blue butter cream. The cupcake 'case' is made from royal icing, which I did buy, but if I made one again, I would make it myself so I could using the cupcake mould to recreate the folds in a regular case.
It went down well with everyone, they were impressed but I think my baking skills need a little more practice, namely my icing skills and how to make my sponge lighter! Any tips? I don't have an electric blender or whisk.
