Cake… Three Ways!

Mini Cakes [1]

I love cake! And, by now you guys should know I love things little, too. So, I made some mini cakes using my new favorite moist yellow cake recipe [2]. Actually I made 9″ cakes and used a round cutter [3] to make them mini. Two layers will get you six 3 7/16″ cake circles and two smaller circles. Here’s how one of the layers looks all cut up.

And here they are stacked. They’re so cute… even without any frosting. (Don’t worry the scraps made it safely to my tummy.)

But, who would serve a naked cake. So here it is fully clothed in luscious white buttercream frosting [2]. Hold me back!

Three Mini Cakes [7]

I started out making the fondant [8] covered cake that’s on the pedestal (inspired by a pillow fabric from an old Pottery Barn catalog. Yep… I love their stuff.) Then, I made the second one using decorator icing bags [9] and tips [10]. Then I got tired and just slapped some buttercream all over the last one. And, I have to admit, I think it’s my favorite. But, tell me what you think.

How do you like your cakes decorated?

Messy: casual and careless
Sassy: semi-casual, piped with pretty icing and flirty flowers
Classy: all dressed up with fondant cutouts and a smooth finish
