How to Make a Chocolate Candy Liner for a Giant Cupcake


Giant cupcake pans allow you to create whimsical centerpieces for birthday parties and other celebrations. The giant cupcake's versatility lies in the fact that it can be decorated to match any party. However, decorating the base may prove a challenge because the base's ridges can be difficult to ice smoothly or cover in fondant. Making a chocolate candy liner for the giant cupcake is simple and gives a smooth appearance to your cupcake.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 pound chocolate melting wafers, any color
  • Giant cupcake pan
  • Spoon or spatula
  • Clean the giant cupcake pan thoroughly. Any crumbs will ruin the appearance of the candy liner. Dry the pan thoroughly.

  • Melt three-fourths of the melting wafers according to the package directions. Stir until smooth.

  • Pour the melted chocolate into the base section of the giant cupcake pan. Carefully work to spread the melted chocolate evenly around the bottom and sides of the cupcake base with a spoon or spatula. Tip the pan to work the melted chocolate around in the pan.

  • Place the pan in the refrigerator once the base is entirely covered. Let the pan cool in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set.

  • Melt the remaining chocolate wafers, and fill in any thin spots in the liner.

  • Return the pan to the refrigerator once all areas of the cupcake base are sufficiently coated with melted chocolate. Allow the pan to cool for 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Remove the pan from the refrigerator. Gently slide the liner out of the cupcake pan. Store the chocolate candy liner in a cool place until it is needed.

  • Trim the sides of the cake so it will fit. Place the completely cooled cake in the candy liner base. Decorate the top of the giant cupcake as desired.
