Hi. I have some mini heart cake pans that I'll be using for a Valentine's Day bake sale. What the heck is poured icing? I'm feeling really stupid here.

No need to feel stupid at all. If you don't know something never be afraid to ask = especially on this forum icon_smile.gif

It is a super thin fondant that is poured over a cake somewhat like a glaze. It is usually see through.

Why do you need to use that? You can use any icing you want on mini cakes.

I purchased the wilton heart pan....it has six hearts in the pan. The cakes are about the size of a cupcake.

I was looking at other mini heart cakes and realized that people were using pouring icing on the cakes. The cakes are so small so I wasn't sure if I could actually ice them the regular way.

I'm new to cake decorating but not to baking. I'm doing this for a bake sale at church this weekend and was just trying to do it the right way.

I really do appreciate your help and I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future!

Yes, I know the pan and size of the cakes. Use a rose tip to pipe icing around the edges and any tip to cover the tops.
One could also use a spatula (cake knife( to apply icing if you didn't want it perfectly smooth.
