Mini Wedding Cakes

I made these mini two- tiered cakes for Miss Kelly's bridal shower. The bright colored cakes were built with a regular cupcake sized base cake topped with a mini muffin sized cake. The cakes were covered in poured candy icing which gave them a smooth and shiny coating. Then the white frosting decorations were hand-piped by myself and my handsome sous chef (aka Husband! Great job Honey!) The tiny flowers got tiny-er candy centers. And each mini cake sat on its own mini paper doily. Like the sugar cookie favors that matched, the mini cakes were dressed in bright summer colors and the white decorations tied them together for a cohesive look. The cakes were also in bright summer flavors: strawberry (pink), lemon (yellow), and my new flavor "mimosa" (orange). The shower hostess said that everyone was raving about these little guys and that they "tasted even better than they looked"! (Thanks Steph!) These would be really cute at a wedding as well... Mini two-tiered "petit four" style cupcakes start at $5 each.
