I purchased a giant cupcake silicone mould online. It got delivered within 2-3 days. Turns out, that it wasn't that great after all. More than a cupcake shape, it looked like a beehive. So, I covered it in custard flavoured rolled fondant and turned it into a beehive.

Don't ask me about the custard fondant. I ran out of icing sugar in the middle of the night. It was too sticky still so I used up all of my custard powder. -__-
Serve with cookies n cream icecream! To me, the fondant is purely decorative. I don't really eat it because it's just sugar.
