Top 10 Creative and Unusual Giant Cupcakes

As I have told you all before, once upon a time I had great plans to open up my own cupcake shop. But happily, I didn’t because the World of selling cupcakes is completely saturated with people much like myself that like to cook cakes, but can’t really do it very well. One cupcake I love the look of but have never made myself is the Giant one, so join me as I try to find out just how good people can make these mini giants…

As a kid, I loved watching the Muppets and have very fond memories of them. So it will come as no surprise that this Kermit the from big top cupcake is in my top 10. Sadly no recipe or making guide in the link but still a fantastic design and very well made.

Good guy indeed, this rather tasty looking big top cupcake does nothing else but look tasty and simple to replicate, sadly for us non-skilled bakers there is once again no making guide or recipe in the link, but you can, in fact, buy them!!!

8 – 1UP

The nerd in me had to include this cool Super Mario inspired 1up big top cupcake, but it clearly says in the link that this was made via a packet mix! Which for me deserves an extra nod because it shows real creativity despite a low baking skill much like my own.

What a simple but also rather delightful design this giant cupcake is. With its basic build underneath, but great use of love heart sweets and a chocolate door used to cover it I for one loved it. Sadly, once again there is no making guide or recipe in the link.

This Minnie Mouse big top cupcake brings an instant smile to the face, and while once again there is no making guide or recipe in the link it looks amazing!

This rather scary, but highly creative giant cupcake shaped like a wolf is not only a great idea, but it also is not that hard to replicate. Which is handy because once again there is no recipe or making guide in the link. (why would you post these sort of cakes without a recipe of making guide?!? Pure madness)

4 – I find this Despicable!

Now this is what you call a touch of genius! This Minion big top cupcake inspired from the ‘Despicable me’ film is an absolute winner. I would have placed it much, much higher on this list if it came with a recipe of making guide, but sadly it doesn’t.

Cookie Dough Giant Cupcake

3 – Ice Ice Baby!

While this is not the classic style cupcake we see in all the others in this list it is one that made my mouth water the split second I saw it! It is called a “Cookie Dough Bowl” but the shape, mould and style are all giant cupcake owed! And best of all it comes with a simple to follow recipe and step by step making guide. (why can’t they all do that!?!)

While the link doesn’t have a recipe or making guide it is one of the most amazing cupcakes I have ever seen, and just the fact that it is a giant cake makes it all the better.

Nothing else even comes close to just how good this is made with chocolate malt balls, and biscuit fingers (if only I had known about this during my post “Top 10 Cakes Made With Chocolate Fingers”) it is not only mouth-watering but also a master class on how to make giant cupcakes.
