King-size, jumbo, giant - whatever you call these cupcakes, they are the colossal dessert treats for parties and special events. This carrot cake recipe makes 1 9-inch layer cake, or sufficient batter for 6 king-size cupcakes. This is ideal for small family birthday platters (see photos); or double the recipe to make a 2-layer cake or 12 king size cupcakes. They keep well covered in fridge for several days - but who can keep out of 'em?
