One thing that is becoming very popular in my area are those giant cupcakes that can be made from the molds sold by Wilton, Nordicware, etc.  They are a sight to behold and there are a lot of cool things you can do with them such as decorating and filling.  I am wondering if anyone has ever made one of these and if so, how much recipe did you use?  Also, what kind of adjustments did you make?  I have to imagine that they cook differently due to how deep the mold seems to be.  Anyone have experience/pointers with these?

Hi.  I have the Wilton Giant Cupcake Pan.  I cook each side separately so that it cooks evenly.  I flled each side up more than halfway.  It is a cute pan!

Hi fourarchangels,

I made these giant cupcakes about two years ago for my son’s13 birthday that I brought to school..  I have the silicone pan..  on this one I used the white cake mix.  The pan tells you how far to fill in the batter and bake it like normal cake.  It is not complicated.

Hi fourarchangels,

I agree with Kathy1, it’s a very cute pan.

I?ve baked recipes that are intended for loaf and bundt pans successfully in the Wilton pan, which has a 10-cup capacity. You don?t want any more than 7 cups of batter, ~4 for the base and ~3 for the top. Recipes intended for 10-12 cup bundt pans usually produce enough batter; I double recipes intended for a loaf pan.

I usually bake the batter in the cupcake base for a few minutes (10-15min if the total baking time for the recipe is 45-60min respectively) before adding the batter to the top. It works but you do have to work very quickly to grease and fill the top.

Kathy1, I’ve never liked removing the partially baked cake from the oven…... I think I’ll try your method next time.
