One Big Ass Cupcake!

Frosting…sprinkles…fluffiness…and a HUGE cupcake.  Who could ask for more? 

 My Version

For Christmas Dave bought me the big top cupcake. He tried to be sneaky and hide my earrings in the box, but that’s for another post. I saw it at Bed Bath and Beyond and thought it was the cutest thing ever. Not that I’m much of a domestic diva, but I was positive I would bake more if I had the big top cupcake! I begged to open it early so I could take it to our Christmas party, but he made me wait until December 24. Since then every birthday, house warming party, or a special Tuesday I’ve made the Big Top cupcake. In case you order, here are some helpful hints…
  • The cake takes about an hour to cook. So put it in the oven and then catch up on the latest episode of Losing It with Jillian (what? Surely you should watch something healthy if you are baking the 24x larger than normal cupcake).
  • The bottom part takes longer to cook than the top.
  • Once you get it cooked, you’ll have to cut it to even it out. Then put LOTS of icing in the middle.

  • But be mindful of cupcake ninjas. They sneak up and try to steal the cupcake:

Then ice the top and add sprinkles and you will be the hit of any party you go to!!


Have any of you ever been sucked into an As Seen on TV prodcut? Did you love it as much as you thought you would?
