I have a bride asking about making these mini cakes, she wants 200 of them!

I'm thinking they are fondant covered by the looks of them, but I'm not sure how to get the perfect little squares. It looks as if they have a fondant ribbon and tiny bow, any suggestions on how to accomplish the look?

Alicia they look rounded on top to me.. not totally square at the top. I'm sure someone here can help you...

Looks like probably a Alan Silverwood pan (expensive icon_sad.gif )

If they weren't rounded at the top I'd have said to make a cake then cut them into squares and cover them with poured fondant. Then make the bows seperately, let dry and put on. The rounded top though kinda has me questioning. I'm sure it's just a pan...Where to get such a thing is beyond my newbie knowlage. icon_smile.gif Good luck!!

does your bride want exactly that look, or would she take your interpretation (for me that would be flat tops LOL)? if she's flexible, i'd go with PP suggestion

Check this site -
You can get a better look at small square cakes.
They say "Individual square cakes tied with organza ribbon to complement the wedding. Choose from any of our 5 flavors covered with marzipan and sugar paste."

I assume that's why the top edges are rounded.
