Mini CakesFebruary 20, 2012
Many of you don’t probably didn’t know that I don’t actually have a full size oven. I have more of a “toaster” size oven, so I get slightly more creative with my baking! I don’t often get the urge to bake and it certainly doesn’t help that my little oven can cook only 6 cookies at a time, 6 muffins at a time, etc! Tonight, I beat the little oven and made delicious, adorable, and fairly quick – mini cakes (cause everything is cuter when it’s mini)!
So tonight I decided I wanted to bake something more bite sized, but I wanted to be quicker than 6 cookies at a time! I decided to bake a chocolate cake which I would then cut into smaller circles and decorate! Since I am not the baker my sister is, I used a box cake mix. I then used a biscuit cutter in the smallest size I had to cut the cake into smaller circles. As you can see below, I have a bit of cake left over. Mmmm
Anyway – I cut the circles while the cake was still a bit warm, and then let them cool. Once cool, I melted a bit of chocolate icing to pour over the top. While the icing was still warm, I dropped some pieces of walnut on the top.
And finally – I drizzled just a bit more icing on top to keep them from falling off and because you just can’t have too much chocolate. Mmm.
