Cake anyone ?

Yesterday was Little Bird's 21st birthday - so I baked this cake - a Giant Cupcake!

We took it up to her student house in Epsom, where a hoard of hungry students demolished it in short order - it serves 16!

It was an interesting recipe - it used melted white chocolate and cream, as well as the usually eggs, butter, flour and sugar. The cake tin to create this cost more than the ingredients, but it was worth it for the look on her face when she saw it.

Very Happy

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Super cake Zoe, I bet little bird was so chuffed. Sounds like a lovely recipe, please post it over in food. I always add some melted white chocolate to butter icing. Gives it a bit of je ne sais quoi.

Frances's Avatar Wow, Zoe, that giant cupcake is something else ... or was until its fans showed their appreciation.

It is so wonderful to see you baking cakes and taking photos and showing your unique wit.

Best wishes to you, dear Zoe. xo

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Thank you Zoe. Sounds yummy. Look forward to trying it. I use cup measures a lot. I guessed it was an American Recipe. I love a sponge recipe with a twist. My American friend's one is made with buttermilk, and really good.
