  • How to bake a giant cupcake. Giant Cupcake Liner - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pour the candy melts into your measuring cup. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each set, until the candy is melted. You want to end up with about 1/2 cup of melted candy melts. Worse comes to worse, we can melt more.

    Pour about half of the melted candy into the bottom liner of the cupcake pan. Using a pastry brush, brush the candy up the sides, making sure to get into every little crevice. Make sure to go right to the edge of the pan, trying to remain neat (but don't worry too much.) Place the pan into the fridge for 10-20 minutes, depending on how thick you made the first coat. Longer wait time is better.

    When the first layer has hardened up, pour the rest of the mixture into the pan and once again paint up the sides, ensuring even coverage. When complete, pop it into the fridge one more time and wait for it to harden completely (20-30 minutes, just to be safe.)

    Step 4

    Remove the pan form the fridge and gently tilt the pan and using your fingers, pull the candy melt liner out of its mold. It should be thick enough where it does not break. I know it will be nerve racking but trust me, the worse that can happen is that it will break and you will have to melt the candy again. Place the liner down gently and marvel at your creation!!
