I love mini cakes. They are so cute and so fun to eat. I just recently did two mini cakes as celebration cakes for my grand-daughter. Just the perfect size :)


These are the cutest cakes in the world Jan - how do you come up with these ideas!!! I had them on my screen when my son walked by and he went nuts! I don't want to wait for an occasion to make this awesome little treat, oh wait this weekend is a special occasion, Happy Birthday Queen Victoria!

Thanks, Maria! This weekend sounds like the perfect time to make them.


These are completely brilliant! Way better than cupcakes! Love them!


What type of frosting did you use?
Do you by chance have a recipe for that as well?

I love this. These are going to be my new cupcakes too! They look so cute and delicious to eat. My kids would have a great time with these.

Those cakes are just so cute! That's a lovely idea. I think the kids in my niece's kindergarten are going to be thrilled! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

I made these for my own birthday! And they came out great. I used Duncan Heinz vanilla frosting, which worked well. A picture:

Those are amazing! I love the detail you put into decorating them. Happy birthday!
