Hello everyone...here is my second attempt to these cute little cakes. I had a fellow blogger give me some advice...use store bought icing and microwave it!!!! Wow...totally worked. These little cuties are a little difficult to ice. With more practice I feel they will improve in smoothness. I found if the icing was just a little thick it didn't coat evenly. You will have to microwave it several times while using it b/c it hardens quick. Well, here they are:
I used a store bought frozen pound cake this time and felt it was much easier to work with. I cut it up while it was near frozen. I did find it easier to evenly coat the round shape over the squares.
I'm proud to say I made the icing flower on the left. They are really easy to make with royal icing.
If you are wondering why I am going to all this trouble to make them instead of buy them? IT IS ACTUALLY FUN TO DO!!!! Try it with your daughters. I feel ready to show my daughter this baking lesson. She will probably look back when she is an adult baker and laugh at my feeble attempts! Building these memories while baking is so worth it.
Here's a cute little heart with another flower I made.
Well I'm off to have a private little tea party for myself before the kids get home!!!!!
