I have an order for a anniversary cake that the customer would like to try a mini-tier. My smallest pans are 4", 5" and 6" rounds. I love the mini tier that is in the gallery that is all white and was a 2", 3" and 4" round layers. The party is for somewhere around 10-15 people so I'm guessing this will be enough cake but do you think the proportions will look ok? I would love to do it in fondant but she doesn't really like the taste and would prefer BC, I'm hoping to use the faux fondant technique for this. Any other suggestions for assembly? I would appreciate any thoughts you might have or any expriences.
If you are making a double layer, that should be enough cake. I would use cake boards and dowls just to make sure everything stays in place and looks good. BC or MMF will work fine, it just depends on what they want. Good luck.... post a picture when your're done!
It's hard to tell what they want, she just asked my to use my imagination. Her only requests were raspberry filling, white cake, and that her mother's favorite color is pink. So that leaves the door wide open, which sometimes scares me
Sometimes that makes it harder! I like it when people know what they want. I personally love working with fondant. You can do so many great things with it, but I've done the faux fondant and it works great too! Let us know what you come up with!
I tried to do a mini tier for my daughter's first birthday. I got the 2" to bake up fine, but I could not frost the stupid thing. I ended up just using the 4" and 6". It could be my lack of experience, but I just could not frost the stupid 2"! Maybe you will have better luck. I think a 4", 6" and 8" would be fine. Good luck!
I have ordered several of the plastic pans that you have to put on a cookie sheet, that are mini-pans. THe benefit of them being you can bake several of the mini-cakes at a time. The 2" has several openings as does the 3" and 4". KInda like a muffin pan for small cakes. Does anyone know anything about those kind of pans? Are the metal ones better?
