What do you get when you turn a cupcake into an individual mini cake? A Cuppie Cake, of course! These little cakes are so easy to make and a fun alternative to baking cupcakes for a special occasion or birthday!
Mini Cupcake Cakes aka "Cuppie Cakes"
You will need
- Standard size cupcakes and frosting (Check out our recipe here)
- Serrated knife
- Spatula or knife for icing your cake
- Decorations (Check out our sprinkles and edible sugar decorations from our online shop)
- Cupcake Decorating Set
Spray standard size cupcake pan with non stick spray and bake without cupcake liners (or remove the liners from your cupcake before you begin).
Using a sharp serrated knife, gently saw off the top of your cupcake.
Discard cupcake top. (I planned on using the cupcake tops to make cake pops, but couldn't stop eating them long enough to actually accumulate enough scraps to make anything with... oopsies ;) so worth it though!)
Flip your cupcake upside down and frost sides and top with a metal spatula, just like a cake.
It's ok if you can't get your frosting smooth. Simply pat on some sprinkles to cover up any flaws around the sides of your cake.
Using your spatula, gently slide it under your cake, lift if up and transport it to your serving plate.
I piped a shell border with the star tip included in our Cupcake Decorating Set to give it a nice finish. Top your cake with our edible sugar decorations or a candle!
You can repeat this process using mini cupcakes and place them on top of the standard cupcakes to create a 2 tiered cake!
