Have you seen these?
|This image is all up in my Pinterest.|
How can you not see these? They're all over the pin boards. I fell in love with tiny cake. Then I looked at the recipe and thought maybe not. They are pretty and sparkly though so I decided to practice cake decorating on tiny cakes. Some results were less than fabulous, but...
|Made with supplies on hand, yeah, I know, everyone has edible glitter, pompoms, and confetti hanging around.|
It finally worked! This is not the recipe used on the website however, just a white cake. I also do not own a mini cheesecake pan like the directions say to use, but I have a set of biscuit cutters.
|It took a lot of cake to get this far.|
|Fun Fact: the topper was made from metallic tissue sheets cut into strips and wrapped on a pompom maker. Just add washi tape to finish.|
These will definitely be my birthday cake next weekend. I'm going to use a vegan strawberry cake though and a variation of pourable fondant. I did print the Celebrate Magazine freebies today and I might use those too. They're nice, but I might have to do some embossing to add extra sparkle.
So there you go, something as seen on Pinterest actually did turn out.
