Construct a color-powered tower that?s sure to grab attention. Use flashy fondants to decorate cupcakes shaped in our Dimensions Giant Cupcake Pan, Jumbo Muffin Pan, Standard Muffin Pan and Mini Muffin Pan.
Bake and cool 1 of each size cake and muffin; trim off crowns. Bake and cool 2 additional swirl tops for tiers 2 and 3 using Dimensions pan; use only 1/2 cup cake batter for tier 2 then 1/3 cup for tier 3.
Trim off pointed tops; trim sides to match diameters of Jumbo and Standard muffins. Ice bottoms smooth in assorted colors.
Tint 2 oz. fondant in each color. Roll out 1/16 in. thick. For bottom tier, cut 17 wavy strips, 3 1/2 in. long, using Cutter/Embosser fitted with 2 wavy wheels and 1/4 in. spacer.
