1 Pull apart cupcake cake

Where there is a will there is a way!! It’s absolutely correct. Pull apart cupcake cake is a way to go for those people who wants to make a fantastic cake for their loved ones but don’t know how? For people like me who love baking cakes but it doesn’t turn out as perfect as many Instagram mum’s cakes.

If you are like me an enthusiastic mum, who wants to make the most important thing – THE CAKE on their kids’ birthday by herself but can’t make more than a simple round chocolate cake then I’ve got you.

Finally, you can make an amazing cake, in any style and design for your kids by baking cupcakes and arranging it into your desired shape. Yes, ladies, it’s as simple as that. HURRAAYYY!!

Bake many cupcakes, prepare some icing, arrange them accordingly and your pull apart cupcake cake aka your little one’s BIRTHDAY cake is ready.

No more fussing around, sweating, and trembling hand, no it’s true. It happens, it happens to me sometimes, especially when I decorate the cake right before guests arrive. (I know, timing!!)

No more baking a few practice cakes a few days before the birthday. (I do that, just to be sure that I can still bake a cake)

Just make one cupcake after another. Less mess, less waste, less work.

Let’s check our 21 Best cupcakes cake ideas that you can bake on any occasion.
