How would you decorate the mini cakes that come out of this pan:

I'm hosting my sister's bridal shower in March, and I thought this would be a great favor. Would a pour-over fondant or ganache cover it properly?

Haven't done it, but can't you cover them all at once?

Decorating mini-wedding cakes:
(Fondant or buttercream.)

It is all one piece, so if using regular fondant it would be covered at one time. But with it being so small, I'm wondering if a poured fondant/ganache would be easier.

please may I suggest that you look at an English website....Lindy's Cakes....she has a book "Cakes to Inspire and Desire"...there are some lovely wedding cakes plus matching mini cakes with full instructions.
Each one is covered individually with sugarpaste/gumpaste and then decorated with made flowers and/or beads and crystals.

IMHO-these cakes look great in the picture, but will be very difficult to do and make look smooth. They don't always come out of the pan in one nice piece, and if they do, there is always the "crumb texture" on the outside to deal with. Just try making a cupcake without a liner-get it out of the pan, cover it with ganache. Not an easy feat, and these triple layer cakes will be much more difficult.

I don't mean to be Debbie downer, but I'd definitely do a trial run with cupcakes before investing $30 on a pan I won't use often.
