I just received the new cake pan i ordered and im so excited! Its 6 mini 3 tiered cakes in one pan....so cute! For our christmas party coming up I wanted to make snowmen out of the little cakes but I wanted to ice them in buttercream not fondant. So I was wondering how to keep them from smudging? How would I transport them and also the guests will need to pick up thier own...
I was thinking putting each one in cupcake liners but im not sure about that. Any suggestions?
here is what the pan looks like:
I think gluing each mini cake to a mini cake board circle with icing will hold them still. Then take masking tape and make loops of it to secure the cake boards to the bottom of a box so they won't slide around in transit.
I don't think paper muffin cups are big enough or will look very nice.
My mind immediately went to poured fondant. I can't see how you could ice them smoothly (and sanely) any other way, lol. As for the paper cups, if you were planning on laying them flat and making the smooth circle larger (creating an almost mini-fluted paper plate-like thing) they would look fine. But if you meant to put them inside of a standing paper cup, I think you would lose all the details of the tiered cake, which is probably what you loved about the pan to begin with.
hmmm these are both good ideas! Ive never used poured fondant before though, do you have a recipe? And does it taste good? I think im more concerned about the taste rather than looks of these little cakes.
I would dip them poured fondant.
