Small Tiers

My mom bought me this pan set for an early birthday present.  I decided to try it out. 

First of all I love the way it makes the smallest cakes.  There 2 each 4 inch, 3 inch, and 2 inch in the set.  I have to say that I am not a fan of dark pans but these worked very well.  Second, I love how the cakes baked.  The whole cake was done in 30 minutes of baking time (which for here in Colorado Springs says something!)  The cakes cooled and I went to work.

I used my chocolate cake recipe and had more than enough left over.  In fact, I probably could have used the rest of the batter for another whole cake.  I used them for cupcakes instead, in case you were wondering!  I also used vanilla buttercream icing.  I wanted to try out the Duff Cake Tattoos to see how they worked and what they looked like on a cake.  They are edible and easy to use!  It makes the cake look pretty sharp, don’t you think?

Just to show how small the tiered cake rally is I put it next to a 5X7 of my husband and kids

After I made the cake, I was talking to my husband about it.  We both think it would be a cute cake to duplicate a wedding cake for an anniversary or for a fabulous birthday party with only a few guests!  For whatever reason, this is a fun, fancy cake!
