Wilton Giant Cupcake

I was perusing the kitchen items at the local Goodwill the other day when I discovered the Wilton Giant Cupcake pan. I hit the jackpot! Not only was it only $4.99 and in great condition, but I love all things Wilton. It is my go to brand when I purchase baking products. Since I have never made a giant cupcake before, I decided to visit the Wilton website and see if their instructions would give me a ‘Pin It’ or if I should ‘Forget It’.

Since it was the 4th of July I thought it would be fun if I got creative and made a 4th of July themed cupcake. 

I enlisted some help from my girls. I think they were as excited as I was! 

We followed the directions perfectly! After we pulled the cakes from the oven the colors were so pretty. I will admit that the blue looked green, but I was okay with that. 

After the cakes were cooled, we iced them. We made sure to use more food coloring and pretty sprinkles to liven up the cake even more! 

We then carefully placed the top of the cupcake onto the bottom of the cupcake. After it was securely placed onto the bottom of the cupcake we stood back, scratched our head, looked at each other and just laughed! What the heck did we just create? Did we create a mushroom or maybe we created a rocket?! I am not a professional baker but the instructions seemed easy enough. Sadly, we had 3 adults working on this project and none of us could make it work.

    How can baking a giant cupcake turn out bad? 🙂 At least you gave it a try and had fun doing it. Plus think of all the snacking after.

  2. Even if it doesn’t turn out perfect, you had fun and it tasted great! That’s all that really matters, right?

  3. I have one of these and LOVE it! The kids always ask for me to make them a Giant cupcake for special occasions.

  4. You did a really great job with your cupcake and I’m just loving the colors. That cupcake would only last a few minutes in my house. 🙂

  5. Wow, I hadn’t seen a cupcake that big before. It looks delicious!

    Wow, we haven’t made cupcakes that large before but we do have the bigger cupcake tins. They’re perfect for muffins too.

    I’ve always thought the giant cupcake pans were cute. I rarely do well with the normal sized ones, though, so I should master those first.

  12. My girls would love to make this! They’d be in heaven with a giant cupcake!

  13. haha! I’m sure it still tasted great! Worth the attempt!

  14. I bet it still tasted just as yummy! I would have eaten it 🙂

  15. I’m sure the taste was good!! 🙂 I think a giant cupcake would be fun (to eat and/or make).

  16. That is hilarious! I am never good at cakes. Am I the only person thinking that you could maybe use that cake pan for a naught bachelorette party? Sorry- I just had to say it!

  17. These are so cute! My little girl would love this!

  18. Big cupcake molds for my sons with huge appetites! Perfect gadget for baking. I’m going to have to look for these this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

  19. OMGosh I have to have one of these, it looks like so much fun to make. My teen girls would love helping me, even my 5 year old would.

  20. Annemarie Leblanc says

  21. What a fun cupcake idea. I love that you did it for the Fourth of July in patriotic colors.

  23. Oh my what a cupcake that is. My son would have a fun time with this.

  24. That’s really neat. I’ve never seen a big cupcake pan like that before. Love the colors!

    The cake actually came out well.!!! I think the icing is the hard part. But it looks like fun!

  26. WOW! That is SO much fun, I love it! I will have to pick one up, my nephews & nieces will get such a kick out of it!

  27. I have been wanting to get this cupcake mold for the longest! I love the idea of a giant frosted cupcake. Great for birthdays!

    My Daughter had one of these and used it quite often. I wonder if she still has it.

  30. Cute! I’ve never tried one of those giant cupcake makers, but I do always find awesome kitchen stuff at goodwill.

  31. LOL! Half of the time I make something it looks unlike what it is supposed to look like. I bet a second round would result in a better looking cake. I bet it still tastes good!

  32. Okay. You made this look so easy. I’m going to challenge myself and bake my kids birthday cake! YUM!

  33. What a great deal. I have a ton of Wilton items and can not wait until we close on our new home so I can get them out of storage. Our rental is too small for all of my toys.

  34. Casa Vilora Interiors says

    That is an awesome idea for a cupcake! Super duper sized!

  35. I have this cake pan. I’ve used it several times and have never gotten it right!!

  36. This would be a fun pan for my daughter who loves baking! She’s wanting to make her brother’s birthday cake this year, so I might just have to check on this as an option for her.

  42. Shut the oven door! I want this and may or may not eat the whole thing myself! 😀

  43. I want a ginormous cupcake now!! That is kind of the awesomest thing ever!!
