Anyone use these? Seems reasonably priced, and the shape is great. Recommend something else?
I've never used them but they are really cute.
ooohhhhh! Me likey!! Don't know anything about them but I would consider getting them!
They are cute but a pain in the butt to ice or cover in fondant..Only upside....You don't have to bake the layers one at a time!!
Oh, please don't show me anything else I might want to spend money on!
Oooo...something else to add to my inventory!
i have a bunch of these. they are a pain in the ass!!! it is hard to get them out in one piece and a pain to ice.
Oh yeah? Thanks for the tip. I wasn't hard up to try minicakes, but thought it might be fun??? to try....lol, guess not!
I have this:
I have had no problems baking or getting them out of the pan. However, the PPs are correct that they are a bear to ice. I did these over the weekend using it.
...and here are pictures from CC that looks like this pan (or something similar) was used:
I hope all these links work. I'm not as good as JanH!
Awww....cute little baby cakes. Thanks for the links! Might give this a try sometime. I hear that MagicLine pans are pretty much the standard go-tos for any pan you would need. Gotta get me some!
Yeah...I would think that those would be impossible to ice. I'd do fondant if I had to do those.
I would think it's much easier to cut and ice the cakes individually. I recently did 80 mini 2 tiered cakes at my PT job....boy that took a while.
All of my min cakes were individually iced and stacked and let me tell you it is a pain in the tushy! I would definitely be interested in trying one which is already stacked. I actually just bought the one that you mentioned jammjenks. Since I don't have time to try it, I lent it to a friend of mine. I can't wait to give it a go though.
OK, so I have one of these pans I bought at an ICES convention years ago..I think it was almost a prototype from some south american decorator
ANYWHO....tried to make some recently. Failed miserably.
Granted, these are a pain in the rump..but anyone have some sort of trick to getting these little devils iced to look half decent?
Don't bother spending the money.
Bake a sheet cake and cut your own layers using recycled tin cans.
Use a 4", 3" and a 2" can with the rim cut off.
You can get 3 1/2 tiny cakes out of a 9x12 sheet cake.
They are very easy to decorate and are very inexpensive to make.
