Make sure you SUBSCRIBE to my channel for all our awesome weekly tutorials ☺

PS: The cupcake case I have used has been baked in several times and you can see some discolouration around the edges – this HAS been washed & scrubbed and is from many uses but does not affect the result of the chocolate pinata at all. Just FYI if you are using a pre-used giant cupcake mould and are worried about the same issue 🙂

500g-600g (18oz-20z) melted dark, milk or white chocolate
50g (2oz) copha, shortening or Crisco (to thin the chocolate a little)
Assorted sized m&m’s (I used mini and peanut)
1 large red round candy (gumball, giant jaffa, ball of fondant)
Enough assorted candy to fill the base of your giant cupcake

Tools & Equipment:
Zip Lock Bag
You will need a GIANT SILICONE CUPCAKE MOULD — these can be bought online, via ebay and at most cake decorating and homeware shops — make sure it is SILICONE, not metal as it needs to be flexible
Iced cake board (optional) (I used a 10″ wooden board)
Turntable or lazy susan (optional)
