Giant Chocolate Cupcake - How not to do it

I baked a cake for my little girl's 6th birthday tomorrow. I've not done a giant cupcake before, so I wanted to try it out before I do her real party cake on Saturday. She just wanted chocolate. No icing...

So I made my favourite Nigella's Chocolate cake, doubled the mixture and put in it a borrowed giant cupcake tin, which I greased, as advised:


However, it took over an hour to cook. And it turned out, well, a bit broken!



Never mind, I'll just make some chocolate fudge icing, and glue it together. And chop off the burnt tops...


And then use my new icing bag to cover it in cupcake-style chocolate icing (the afore-mentioned chocolate fudge icing)


Which managed to drip a lot. But I shaped the drips into letters and the number 6. Then sprinkled with pink things.

I'm sure she'll like it. If not, I'll just take it to work.
