Britt Whyatt from She Who Bakes ( shares her tips and tricks for one of our favourite bakes!

Technique Focus

What’s better than a cupcake? A GIANT cupcake! These cakes are easy to make, fun to decorate and can be customised for any theme. For this, I’m using the silicone giant cupcake mould that’s readily available online and in stores, but this also works if you have the metal tin too.

Before we get mixing ingredients, we’ve got to prep the mould. For this you will need:

• giant cupcake mould/tin

• silicone pastry brush

• cake release (shop-bought or homemade)

• 2 x lined oven trays

Firstly, make sure your mould is clean and grease free, then paint the inside of the top and bottom liberally with cake release and set aside. I’m going to be making a vanilla giant cupcake, but again, this recipe can be personalised however you like!
