Yesterday I used my 40% off coupon at Michaels to buy a giant cupcake pan. I've been wanting one of these for a long time!
I had also recently purchased some shell molds to make fondant shells so I used both my new purchases to make a giant cupcake fit for a mermaid!
I had so much fun making this last night. I had formed the fondant shells earlier in the week and last night I brushed them with lustre dust which is an edible powder used by cake decorators. It made the flat colored shells just come alive and look so real!
It's a dark chocolate cake with butter cream frosting and I have it sitting on a mixture of brown and white sugar to resemble sand. I had a blast making this!!!
