Giant cupcake cakes are one of the prettiest birthday treats with the added advantage of having a super fast turn-around time for busy decorators.  In fact, there isn’t much decorating to do, as the shaped cupcake tin does most of the work, especially if you opt for an all-buttercream finish.

Chocolate Suze has a great baking tip for making giant cupcake cakes: to solve the problem of the top half of the cake baking faster than the bottom half (because it holds less cake batter), submerge the side with the dome shape in a pan of water to slow the cooking. Brilliant!
