A Giant Cupcake for Hump Day

Giant Cupcake

Wednesdays are tough, and sometimes, at the end of the day, all you really need is a horrendously tempting treat. If that’s the case, this recipe for one single cupcake, albeit a giant one, is right up your alley. It’s debatable whether this mega-treat is bigger than a toddler’s head, but it’s certainly big enough to feed a couple of people…or an entire party. This giant cupcake is sweetened with sugar and spice and everything nice (and also castor sugar). As far as the topping goes, a white chocolate buttercream does the trick, but if that’s not your flavor, do what you want – it’s tough to go wrong with a giant cupcake.

Sometimes just being able to enjoy a simple, but very light and tasty, white cupcake is far more enjoyable than many of the other flavor combinations. This is especially true if the cupcake is being offered as an afternoon treat or following a heavy meal. This cupcake, although simple to make but extremely delicious in taste, is topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting that just adds the final touch of taste to a very basic white cupcake.

Tres Leches Cupcakes

Tres Leches Cupcakes

What’s even better than uno leche? TRES LECHES! Obviously a good cupcake considers all cultures, and this one has a delightful Mexican flare that is simply irresistible. Some condensed milk, some flour, some heavy whipping cream and of course some strawberries makes this a tres star winner. These are great for a quiencera, or perhaps a late night couch party that involves one too many soap operas. Either way, delicious!
