I made tiered cupcakes last night! I didn’t have multiple sizes of muffin tins available (as suggested by this site) so made modifications to the technique.
In a fit of hunger and indecision, I purchased multiple frostings, candies and cake mixes. I settled for a confetti rainbow cake mix (not pictured) for Norman’s Anniversary Cupcakes. He’s been at Bramble Berry for eight years and deserves much thanks and praise.
The ideal way to make multi-layered cupcakes is to have a cupcake tin sized smaller than the base cupcake. Having no such 2nd cupcake tin, I improvised. I poured a flat sheet cake to cut baby cupcakes out of. When they are frosted, no one will know that they weren’t real cupcakes.
After the cupcakes had cooled for 10 minutes, I cut the tops off the cupcakes to make them into a flat surface for the next layer.
Check back later for the rest of the steps to build nifty tiered cupcakes.
