I was desperate to buy one of the giant cupcake tins but found that in the UK there was really only a couple of options - the Wilton tin which was v. expensive and then the nordic one and the one from Lakeland - both of which I didn't like the look of as the top part of the cakes look too tall and pointy!!! (only my opinion!)

I then found this one. It came in at half the price of Wilton yet had the same dimensions and design. I was very wary of the quality as I have used Wilton before and loved them. However, I needn't have worried - it was a dream. The tin is nice and weighty and seems to have good non-stick peoperties.

Having googled lots and lots, I had seen that a problem with all of the giant cupcake tins (regardless of make) is that the base cooks slower than the top. I appreciated the instructions which came with the tin reminding me of this! It suggests baking the base for a few minutes before putting cake mixture in the top. I didn't do this - instead I made two cakes.

I have used a basic sponge mixture and it has worked out fine. I use a 4 egg mix for the base and a 3 egg mix for the top. These quantities ensure that the cakes rise above the tins - when cool, I then level them by chopping the tops off! I only butter (stork!) and flour my tins and never have problems with sticking. All in all, a great buy!!!

This is brilliant, as long as you grease it before pouring the mixture in and, as someone else already stated, cook the bottom part of the cake for 50 minutes and the top half for only half an hour. I used a normal cupcake recipe for 24 cakes which was enough to fill the tin, make sure you only fill it 3/4 full or you'll need to cut it down for the top and bottom fo fit nicely together.
Looks very impressive when made and considering the cost of a giant cupcake from most bakeries is £45+, the tin is very good value for money as well as giving opportunities to make and sell them of your own ;)
Even if you don't like baking (course you like baking, otherwise you wouldn't be viewing this product to begin with, buy it anyway cos it might come in handy when someones birthday arises. beats buying one of those crappy rank cardboard tasting cakes from Tesco any day!
Enjoy!

I have used this twice already, once to try out and the second time for a friends birthday. The results were great both times.

Sturdy, well made. I did my homework before using. Seems that one side cooking faster than the other is the norm. Indeed the enclosed instructions advised filling the base, cooking for half the time, then filling the top.
I decided to cook each one separately fir complete accuracy. A 4 egg Madeira mixture in the base, and a 3 egg in the top. Was perfect!

The tin arrived quickly and having read the reviews I decided to bake the top and bottom separately. The cakes took a bit longer than some people suggested but they still turned out really well. My sister was thrilled with her birthday cake.

This is an excellant cake pan/tin. I looked through quite a few different makes and am so glad i went for the Eddingtons cake pan, as it is the closest you'll get to the heavy weight Wilton tin,shape and size, but a lots cheaper! Very well made, good strong tin, slightly lighter than Wilton,but they are heavy! Gives superb results each time,ive now made four cakes and had no problem with them sticking atall,I use cake release, I followed baking advice and put the top half in half an hour into the cooking of the base, so it doesnt burn.
I would highly recommend this tin, as cheaper silicone alternatives, are very bowl like and this give a good cup cake shape. Definate must have!

Although I've only used it twice, the recipe on the box only says "use a 6 egg recipe" so that's not amazingly helpful. I have yet to work out how to get a good sized cake on either side without one side sinking in the middle. I like the fact that it's made with a heavy metal and has a non-stick coating, but you can't line it which means it's probably better to bake at a lower temperature so it doesn't burn around the edges or cook faster on the outside than on the inside. Have yet to work out how to get a good cake out of it, and after two failed attempts, I'm a little disappointed and deflated, so haven't tried again. What would be really good is someone to show you how to use it, or adequate instructions. Everyone has a different way of doing it that doesn't work for others, so I've not been helped so far. This is not the fault of the tin - it's sturdy and well made, and will last a good few years: probably more than most since I'll probably not use it very much lol

I bought this tin after unsuccessfully trying to use the silicone mould to make a giant cupcake, only to find that whatever I did the bottom half of the cupcake didn't cook in the middle. It took a couple of goes to get the amounts and timings right, but the end result using this tin was far better than using the mould. I used a 4 egg sponge mixture for the bottom, 3 for the top and cooked them separately. This took longer, but I felt this was the best option. I cooked the mixture on just under mark 2 gas with the shelf slightly below the centre for a total of 100 minutes for the bottom and 90 for the top, taking them out at 75 minutes just to check. The cake took a good 2 hours to cool down. They come out bigger than you think!

I carefully read the previous reviews before buying this superb cake tin and followed the advice for a 4 egg mix for the bottom and a 3 egg mix for the top. I lightly greased the tin and the cakes slipped out very easily. The cake mix did go well over the top but I trimmed them down while they were still in the tin. Next time I will take more care with the top trimming; as it is a sort of spiral the lose end wanted to carry on unravelling which made it a bit tricky but it looked fine once it was decorated. I cooked both for about an hour but my oven is quit a gentle beast so it may not take as long in other ovens. I have shown the photograph to many people who have been impressed so, give this tin a go and I am sure you will be happy with the results.

Bought this based on reviews and am not disappointed. Greased with stork and cake came out first time!
I did a 6 egg mix splitting between the sides. The first one i baked the bottom and then the top after. It took quite a while to bake the base.
The second one, having looked up info online I baked both top and bottom at the same time at 140 for 1 hour 15 mins and it was perfect, nice light golden bake rather than a thicker darker crust round the cake!
I have a silicone one also which is great, but had that in the fridge with a chocolate mould chilling.
Very impressed!
