They're called cupcakes because they're like cups of cake, right? (I happen to think "cupcake" is one of the cutest words!) Well my friend Jeff bought me a colossal cupcake pan from Williams-Sonoma, and I decided to use it for my co-worker's birthday!
Gorgeous!! And here's the side view:
Like soft-serve ice cream (or frozen yogurt)!
What's really cute and unnecessary is that the entire pan is shaped like one giant cupcake:
Ok so I used a mix. But it was fun-fetti!
When it came out of the oven, I had to cut off the rounded tops of both pieces so they'd stay together! It reminded me of the original version of Cinderella when the stepsister cut off her heel to fit into the shoe... Don't think about that as you read the rest...

It was fun AND tasty! Can't beat that!
