Both Vee’s daughters celebrated birthdays with Giant Cupcake Cakes this year so when Vee ordered this one for Kristen I had to change the design a bit to make it unique for her. I chose a soft lime green and pastel lavender as the colour palette for the cake and made a green chocolate casing for the cupcake cake. I popped the chocolate-cased cake onto a lavender embossed board finished off with a green polka dot washi tape. The cupcake cake was generously iced with a cream cheese icing which gave me a soft background to place my gently ruffled lime and lavender ruffled flowers. I added white sugar pearls to the flower centres and small roses and blossoms to the cake.

Giant Cupcake Cake for Nicola!
Thanks Vee of your order for Nicola’s birthday cake for the third year running. It was fun to do this Giant Cupcake Cake in pastel blue and shades of lime green for her. I have baked this cake before but decided on a chocolate coated ‘cupcake wrapper’ base for a change. Thanks to an awesome tutorial it was really easy and not only effective on the cake but also tasty. I added a swirl of vanilla cream cheese icing before decorating the cake with daisies in shades of lime and Crystal Lace butterflies. I was inspired by the blue cupcake cases with their dainty white polka dots to add white gel polka dots to the chocolate casing.
The cupcakes I made with a matching vanilla icing, lime daisies and lime green pearls. I added the cake to an embossed cake board with a washi taped edge in the matching colours. Cake turned out to be not only my favourite four letter word but Nicola’s too as she was presented with her birthday cake!
Giant Cupcake Cake for Michelle’s Birthday
Michelle turned 12 a few weeks ago and she wanted a pretty girly cake to share with her friends at her party. I made the giant cupcake cake for her and iced it with a creamy vanilla icing before adding flowers and butterflies in pink and lime green. I added a few orange and yellow blossoms and lime green embossed leaves to make her cake really pretty. I wrapped a green ribbon with white polka dots around the middle of the giant cupcake cake and added some flowers around the base of the bow to complete the cake. Hope you had fun at your party Michelle!
