Giant Cupcake

Megan gave me this awesome giant cupcake pan for Christmas, and the photo below is the baking debut! I made this for Julie's birthday. It is not really a recipe because I just used funfetti cake mix, but I did make the frosting from a recipe on food network. The cake requires 2 boxes of funfetti (although it doesnt require all of the batter- you can make a few cupcakes with the extra).The cake came out more moist and dense than typical funfetti. I am not sure if it is because of the depth of the pan or b/c it is baked longer at a lower temp (approx 50 min at 325 degrees).

Quick Buttercream Frosting


* 3 cups confectioners' sugar
* 1 cup butter
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 to 2 tablespoons whipping cream


In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.

Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency.
