All Things Mini

Not only will we be offering making minis this year, we’ll also be offering making mini cakes too! If you sign up for our adult baking class you can learn how to make these fantastic, little mini cakes. Not only are they adorable, but they are perfect for one serving size and are great to serve at your next dinner party! One cake’s flowers were made with gumpaste and the other with modelling chocolate. Each has its own benefits however. Gumpaste tends to dry out extremely quickly and will sometimes crack. Gumpaste is often used to make flowers and decorative pieces as it can be rolled out very thin. Modelling chocolate is similar to a clay like substance and is easier to smooth out your seems with. Both are very pliable materials and are fantastic to use for decorating cakes.
