This may not actually be a “mini” version of a cake (which to me means more like the two-bite, petit four version). But it is small – only 3 inches in diameter. I was looking for an opportunity to use a Silverwood multi-piece baking set I’d purchased previously, and doing these little three-tiered chocolate and vanilla cakes seemed to fit the bill nicely.
This was fun to do, and I really like the way it turned out, even if it was a bit fiddly – splitting up the batter into three, splitting up the icing into two, trying to figure out how to decorate the top…was trying to keep it somewhat simple, but a still a little fancier than an everyday bake!
You’ll have to cut me a little slack when it comes to icing the cakes – this is the first time I’ve ever even tried a “crumb coat”…
