Pull Apart Cupcake Cakes: Pans, Molds & Books

Beautiful Pull Apart Cupcake Cakes

Pull Apart Cupcake Cakes Molds & BooksThe new craze in town is none other than these little cakes or cupcakes, whichever you prefer to call them.  I love baking and a favorite cake style of mine and my family, is the pull apart cupcake cakes.   I really like the idea of having individual servings of any dessert already sliced and ready to serve before my guest arrive.  These cupcake cakes certainly fit that bill!

There are two ways to create these lovely cupcake cakes.   You can make them with the pans or molds, or you can make cupcakes and organize them to create a cake design.

If you opt to make the individual cupcakes, then you simply bake them and then organize them according to the design.  Together, they make a beautiful special occasion presentation, but they are very easy to pull apart into single servings when you are ready.

The featured molds are silicone and are quite safe to use for baking.  I own several and actually find them easier to work with than metal pans.  They are very easy to use and clean.  Plus, they are also easy to decorate, and let us not forget how fun they are to serve and eat.

My favorites are the holiday molds.  But no matter the theme or design, you are sure to love them as much as I do and I am certain, your family and friends will too.

Here is a Design for an Elmo Pull Apart Cupcake Cake


Made with Standard Cupcakes and Assembled into a Picture Cake

Basic Instructions the Elmo Cupcake Cake

Making the Elmo pull apart cupcake cake is really easy.  By looking at the photo above, you can easily see the placement of the cupcakes.  Think Football Shape!

20 cupcakes needed to make the Elmo cake

  • Line 1:  2 cupcakes (eyes)
  • Line 2:  4 cupcakes ~ This line will need to curve up slightly
  • Line 3:  5 cupcakes ~ This line will need to curve up
  • Line 4:  4 cupcakes ~ This line will need to curve down
  • Line 5:  3 cupcakes (bottom line)

Plus 2 more cupcakes:  These extra cupcakes are placed 1 on either side, between lines 3 & 4 to make his cheeks.

You will need 2 white eye cupcakes.

The orange nose is iced onto 3 different cupcake edges and the mouth extends across 5 of the cupcakes.  I recommend shaping the face first and then icing the cupcakes.

Cupcakes are rarely shaped exactly even with one another.  Just play with the arrangement of the cupcakes to fit the shape before you start frosting them.

I do recommend completely frosting red cupcakes before assembling the cake, but leave red cupcakes so you can shape the mouth and then fill in around the mouth with red frosting.
