About this recipe: The ultimate cake for any child and one that quite a few grown ups would appreciate as well! You'll need a special giant cupcake tin (available from Lakeland) but it's worth the effort. This recipe is from my book 'Special cupcakes'. See footnote for more details.
Special Cupcakes is published by New Holland Publishers, price £12.99.

Awful. While easy to prepare, the whole cake burnt throughout.So much for a special occassion cake very disappointed - 14 Mar 2012
A complete disaster! I'm an accomplished cook and the cake was burnt round the outside and not cooked inside. It also rose enormously, so I trimmed of 10oz of cake. I don't have enough ingredients to try a different recipe. - 25 Feb 2012
