My brother-in-law, Victor, is lovingly known in the family as “the big boy”. This is truly a term of endearment, and has nothing to do with his actual size. (well, almost nothing :o) What kind of birthday cake is perfect for a big-boy celebration? A great big cupcake…of course!
The Wilton giant cupcake pan is one of my all-time favorite purchases! So whimsical and SO much fun! The cake inside is Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge, and the filling is chocolate buttercream with mini chocolate chips mixed in. I used my favorite buttercream frosting recipe, and I added 3 ozs. of melted chocolate chips and 3 tbsp. of Nestle’s Unsweetened Cocoa to 1 1/2 cups of frosting for the chocolate. Here’s another version that I made for my niece, Nancy, on her birthday. White cake; same frosting.
Here’s to you, BIG BOY! Happy Birthday and happy eatin’!
