Hello fellow cakers icon_smile.gif I am going to do some mini cheesecakes as a test run for a bridal shower and upon looking into the sizes I realized mini could mean MANY different sizes in terms of cheesecakes! Again, I am making them for a bridal shower and wanted something small and easy to eat without utensils like a mini cupcake is.

So what size are your mini cheesecakes? Same as mini cuppies which is the 1.25 diameter? Or do you use a muffin tin or a cupcake tin?

WOW so many options, so very little time! Thanks again for the help, best wishes for a happy baking day icon_smile.gif

I made some for my daughter's babyshower years ago and I just used regular sized cupcake tins. Then I topped the individual cakes with different fruits and fruit fillings. It looked really pretty.

I would think you can use mini cupcake tins as well as long as you don't bake too long. They're a great finger food!

I have made them in the mini cupcake tins. I used silver liners and drizzled a bit of chocolate on top. They were elegant and everyone loved them. It allows people to eat them without much guilt because of their size.

I make minis and regular cheesecupcakes in plain ole cupcake wrappers. They are a BIG hit.

I have the mini cheesecake pans. They are about 1 1/4 inches across. The bottom comes out of each of the 12 cavities. The sides are straight.

I make these often, I use regular muffin size pans. Found if i made them smaller they were all base and no filling.

I'm making mini cheesecakes for my niece's wedding next month....I did a 'trial' run this summer when she was in town and we had problems getting the papers off of the cheesecakes! We thought of making them in a regular pan and cutting them when they are frozen to put into a mini wrapper.....any suggestions?? Need to make about 300 or so!!!

scp --- can I ask where you found that pan you described???
