This is the size I'm referring to:
I want to make cakes, but since i'm a 'cupcake gal' . of course I want them to be mini. I think they're just so darn cute
Anyway, im pretty sure I know how to decorate them the way I have in mind, im not sure how to cut them so they're uniform.
Is there a big cookie cutter? Big meaning maybe 4 inches on the bottom and then 3inches for the middle and 2 for the top? ( thats my best guesstimate)
Or do you measure with a ruler and hope you do i the same each time?
I cant wait to get started, so any help is greatly appreciated.
not sure if this is anything like what you would want but they are a mini 3 tier cake... this site is awesome I've ordered from them a few times. Scan through the website to see if there is something if this isn't your interest.
thanks Metabea, thats a pretty cool cake pan!
The only issue I have with that is it limits you to only one shape all the time. Well, I guess you could cut off the top tier or top 2 if you want a change. Thanks again Metabea.
Anybody have any additional suggestions?
TIA ( again )
Yup. You can bake them so that the whole cakelet is one piece that looks like three tiers using a pan like what Metabea linked to or you can get a set of graduated round cookie cutters.
Hi Prterrell! I wasnt sure if it was really as easy as that. Conceptually, it sounds easy anyway, i am well aware it takes tons of practice.
I wasnt sure if there was some 'special' way to cut mini cakes.
You can by a tin that holds an entire nesting set of cutters in different shapes. The round cutters come in about 8 nesting sizes. They are not real deep, but they should work. Also look for biscuit cutters. They come in different sizes and are deep....often with a handle on top.
I use a water glass with straight sides to cut mini cakes from the large cake. I just measured all my glasses until I could graduate by 2in. I also use a glass or a clean can to cut fondant. Hope this helps.
