I've taken a little time and browsed the internet for some cake ideas for you. These are not ordinary cakes but the cupcake cakes that not only look great but also are easy to serve. Some call them the "pull-a-part" cake. Whatever you choose to call them, you and your guests, whether young or old will enjoy them.
All you have to do is bake your cupcakes in muffin papers; making sure to prepare a few extra, "just in case" some designs may take more to get the shape right. Assemble them into the desired shape (which sometimes isn't so easy), then ice and decorate. You may even want to draw an outline of your design onto the board so you can stay as close to your desired design as possible. And remember, most cupcake cakes average 12-24 cupcakes. That's a quarter sheet board for 12 and half sheet for 24, depending on the design.
We'll start first with the fun one's for the children:
|From Cupcake Central - I love the look on this guy's face!|
|From Cupcake Central - Looks like this one is with fondant|
|From Cupcake Central - Here's a nice and friendly looking one|
|From Sandis Cupcake Bouquets - A full body probably takes a full sheet board|
|From Wendy's Party Treats - This one would be the easiest to make|
And now for the more serious one's with a religious theme;
|From Thrifty Fun - Used a large edge tip to cover the cupcakes, airbrushed them and then arranged the roses and leaves.|
Note: I needed an airbrush for my farm cake a few months back. Not going to buy one for one cake; so what I did is put food coloring and a little water in a fine mist stray bottle; like a travel bottle, and lightly misted my cake. Let it dry then go over it again. It doesn't give the same results as airbrush but for a one time deal it works great!
|From Cake Central - Same method; large tip for cupcakes then topped with roses and leaves|
|From IReallyLikeFood - And again with the same idea but they added a plastic cross in the center.|
