At the Fredrickson white elephant gift exchange this past Christmas, I was lucky enough to win a Big Top Cupcake mold. I was surprised when I was the only person to steal this gift. I thought it would be in high demand. I mean, it makes a giant cupcake! How awesome is that!
Rich's sister Cami heard about my new treasure and was just as excited as me to try it out, so I invited her over for the trial run tonight. We were both so excited today that we told everyone. The funny thing is that people don't seem to know what a giant cupcake is.
Cami: "I'm so excited! I'm going to make a giant cupcake tonight!"
Classmate: "What's a giant cupcake?"
Cami, using hands to show size: "Well, it's a really big cupcake."
Classmate: "Oh, so like a giant cupcake?"
Cami: "Yes. Just what it sounds like."
Cami and her new husband Ethan came over (I'm hopefully going to post some of their wedding pictures soon) and we all had Papa Murphy's (the delicious stuffed chicken bacon garlic pizza), Rich and Ethan watched the BCS Championship Game, and Cami and I made a Big Top Cupcake. It was awesome, and we had to photo document every step. They take forever to bake, and we were a little impatient and didn't wait long enough for the cupcake to cool, so our ice cream kind of melted everywhere, but it was still delicious!
I want to make another one. Next recipe: Boston Cream Cake.
