In this video tutorial I will show you how to decorate a giant cupcake and base. I decorate the giant cupcake base with chocolate fingers and pipe the top and finish off with some sprinkles.

You will need the following :


  • Bake a giant cupcake using this giant cupcake recipe. Buy cupcake pan : (affiliate)
  • When the cakes are ready, put the bottom part on a serving plate and cut it in half, spread icing on it.
  • Put the other half on top and crumb coat the sides of the base, then put a second thicker coat to help the chocolate fingers to stick.
  • Spread some icing on top of the base and put the top part on it.
  • Pipe some icing on top and then add some sprinkles. If you want to learn how to decorate a giant cupcake with buttercream roses you can watch a tutorial I made showing how to pipe buttercream roses.
