I am planning a "spring theme birthday party for my daughter.
I have bought small molds -(bug/butterfly etc)-for individual size cakes for the kids.
what kind of icing should i use for these small cakes
How small are they?
Most serving sizes for sheet cakes are 2"x2"x2". Would these molds fit into that size, give or take a bit? If so, I think you might want to go with a pourable icing. Or just straight fondant.
It would be quite difficult to ice that small of a cake in bc.
I think I know what you are talking about. It's the pan with the different little cakes in 1 pan....you could do the poured icing, then go over it with icing pens for the details. HTH
yes-it is a pan with different little cakes
do u have a good recipe for poured icing -can i colour it
Sounds like you might be referring to the Williams-Sonoma Backyard Bugs Cakelets! My boyfriend always calls me lovebug and he got me this pan for Christmas. I really love it!~ I think the best way to decorate them is by piping with buttercream and/or royal icing. The details could be missed when using rolled fondant (IMO), but then again, you can always get those details back by decorating as you decorate on top of he fondant.
There's a recipe for Quick-Pour Fondant in one of my books, but I haven't tried it yet. If you end up going with poured, let me know how it turns out.
I think you are going to really enjoy these (love)bugs! Good luck & don't forget to post some pics!
yes it is the william sonoma backyard bugs pan with small molds in it
i think i will try buttercream icing /piping.
will do a trial run and then will ask for more help from all of you since i am a novice
thanks for all your suggestions
