Cupcake Cake Memory Lane

In What Is a Cupcake Cake, I gave you some easy directions on how to create a cupcake cake, as well as how to make a rainbow on one.

To give you an idea how versatile cupcake cakes can be, I decided to share a few of the ones I have done in the past.  I do generally stick to the basic shapes for mine, but remember you can use your imagination here.

For this one, I did use the shape of a baseball field as my base shape.  The figures are plastic.

Cupcake cakes can be decorated in different directions as well, depending on the shape of your decorations.

If you have ever heard me talk about the image I forgot to flip before piping, it was this FFA cake.  Not only did I have to redo the whole image, I ended up dropping me camera on it while taking pictures. 

The image on this one always cracks me up every time I see it.

For this one, I dropped some colored icing (or maybe it was just the gel color) on the white icing and smeared it around.  They were also filled with lemon curd (colored green) for the slime factor.

Here is a slightly different shape than the others.  The hand print is actually mine hand, covered in green colored piping gel.

This was a larger cupcake cake using about 35 cupcakes.  As long as you have a board that will fit you can do as many cupcakes as you want or need to do.

Several of these images were done using the Frozen Butter Cream Transfer (FBCT) technique.  It is a great technique for transferring a more detailed picture onto a cake and giving you a smooth top.  You can google it, as there are many step by steps of it out there, showing different ways of doing it. 

Let me know if you would like to see a blog about it one day?
