I was asked by one of my co-workers to bake a cake shaped as a big cupcake for her friend's bday. So, I borrowed my SIL's HUGE cupcake pan from Wilton's. Here is what I came up with.
She wanted a cake with chocolate frosting and basically told me to do whatever I wanted...though there isnt much creative process needed for this cake...I mean its not like I had to come up with a design or shape the cake myself. The hardest decision was what color the bottom "cupcake holder" I was going to choose...light pink won! I thought it would be a pretty contrast with the deep, rich chocolate....WHOOOOH I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!!!
I decided to make a chocolate ganache frosting...my fave!!!!!
I infused some fresh vanilla bean in the batter. And then I added some little pink fondant flowers to make it a little cutesy but not too too cutesy.
Anyway it was a simple cake to make...but boy do my feet HURT from standing up all afternoon in the kitchen!!!
I am off to a Purse cake class on Saturday...can't wait for that! I will post the pick afterwards.
