Birthday Tea Party ~ Giant CupCAKE!

I had the honor of making Granddaughter Hailey's Birthday~CupCAKE for her Tea Party! I had this Wilton cupcake pan on my wish list for over a year. It normally cost $30.00 to $40.00 but I found it at HomeGoods for $12.99. I grabbed it instantly! Hailey's Birthday is the first time I ever used the pan and she was thrilled with it...me to!
Tea Party pictures will be posted soon! xo

P.S. The pan takes 2 cake mixes! It serves lots!

Betty's corner of the world said...

Hi Maryjane ... Your cupcake is beautiful ...my grand daughter Natalie tried to bake those big cupcakes and has had 'no luck' .. her 'pans' are that rubbery stuff ..but hers is in three pieces ... one was raw in the middle, the other's stuck to the pan even though she sprayed them and the other stuck when she tried greasing and flowering the pans ... they were also baked in three different ovens .. including mine ...any ideas?
Thanks
Hugz ...Betty
