Miniature cakes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Was wondering if it's possible to use tuna, vegie, or other small cans...cleaned, sanitized, and lined with parchment paper for the miniature cakes?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks

You can make sheet cakes and then take a round cookie cutter and cut them out... I dont think you would ever be able no matter what you do get rid of that Tuna smell.. LOL .. But I know a lot of people that cut them out with the round cookie cutters....

Thanks Ladycake...I had thought of cutting smaller rounds, but was afraid the crumbs would be awful. Would the simple sugar syrup help with that issue?

I was told that if you freeze them first and then you frost them and put a crumb coat of frosting on them that will help....

I've used circle cookie cutters on a sheet cake to make mini cakes before. It does get crumbly, depending on your recipe/mix. But, if you use a really thin icing consistency and a crumb coat, it all works out. Here's a pic of one of mine!

Actually-years ago I was making a pumpkin cake. It was basically 2 bundt pans stacked. Anyway--the recipe said to use a clean soup can to bake the stem in.

I tried it and it worked just fine. However, in this case, I think I would just cut out rounds from a sheet cake, too. It was a pain in the booty trying to get it out of the can even with heavily greased/floured sides.
