Giant Cupcake

I made this for a potluck we're having at the office today for some departing employees. The one candle represents that we will miss everyONE. I ran out of buttercream before I was able to decorate it as planned, so I had to do some serious improvising -- argh!! -- and had fondant and stripe issues. It's okay, though, just not what I originally had in mind.


It was a chocolate fudge cake, kind of heavy like pound cake with vanilla butter buttercream. I hollowed out the inside of the cupcake a bit and filled it, too. Was wishing later I could reclaim the precious BC. Thanks for looking.
