This GIANT cupcake was for a cupcake themed first birthday party. The main cake was really like a three tiered cake all in one. It stood over a foot tall before the fondant “1” was added to the top. The cake was decorated to match the cupcake that was on the party invitations.
I also made a miniature version of the giant cupcake for the birthday girl. This is often referred to as a smash cake, because well…it get’s smashed. The smash cake was about 6 inches tall. To give you a better idea of the scale of these cakes the tiny looking cupcake in the picture is what a normal size cupcake looks like.
