Giant Cupcakes – the love may be growing!

I have been keeping my distance from cupcakes for some time.  If I need to make some I will and I love making bite sized ones for home or work as you can get more out of a batch so perfect when sharing them out.

My friend Lou has been telling me to embrace Giant cupcakes for some time now and I am finally seeing the sense in her words!  I have done a few giant cupcakes recently and I treated myself to a new cupcake tin.  They are a fab creation that looks extra special for a birthday or celebration and be decorated in any colour with different piping designs.

My main concern with doing them is that I therefore have to prepare and pipe buttercream, which I have to admit is my least favourite task.  Everyone has their own dislike or chore in the kitchen and mine is buttercream!  I find it to be a rather messy job, that is rather involved when you need to prepare different colours and pipe different designs.  Give me a piping back with icing in any day and I will be happy to pipe on to a cake, the finer detail I find more interested than the buttercream piping.  I am on a mission to find a deliciously tasty buttercream/frosting that is ready made so I can reduce the amount of buttercream I have to deal with!  So far I have tried a few but I have only managed to find a delicious chocolate frosting but my supplier has now stopped selling it so the hunt is back on!  I will not accept just any replacement, it has to match buttercream in taste and texture.
