KitchenMaus over at Al Dente combined your regular joe cake with the birthday staple of cupcakes by baking this giant cupcake for her son's first birthday. In her test run, she originally frosted just the top, like any regular ol' cupcake, but as she says, "Who wants half the cake to have no frosting?! Is there even a point?" (Right on.) Which is how she arrived at this frosting-laden cake, complete with Necco wafers and a jumbo birthday candle. Toss out your bite-sized cupcakes and make your own gigantic cupcake with cupcake pans like the Wilton large cupcake pan.
