simple mini tiered cakelets....!


...so after having a bunch of bundt cake left over from this post.....decided to play around and see what i could recycle from it...since it was too tasty to throw out or eat all by myself....unfortunately my kids like icing more than cake....so although they did like the birthday bundt cake....they would pick a box of nerds or a rocket bomb pop over a yummy slice of decadent bundt cake....kids, go figure.....

....i may have mentioned it before but i love anything colorful and mini and if you put them together...100 times better!

...i also love the look of those mini wedding cakes that were/are popular instead of an actual wedding cake or they have been used as favors.....here are some great examples!....but holy guacamole, they are so detailed and look like a boat load of time and effort....these mini cakes are a super short cut and although not as fancy...they are fun....!


....they are made from left over bundt cake (but you can use any cake for this)...slice up the cake into even thicknesses and use cookie cutters or whatever you have to cut out shapes in 3 different sizes.....


...and stack them....(i didn't even frost in between layers but you can if you think it's needed)....then add a little decoration with buttercream (leftover from another project)....and some large pearl non-pareils....and ta-da!....totally recycled mini cakes....they even got some oooohs and aaaaahhs from the 3 kidlets this morning too....yay!

....i also think these would be so cute for a girl-y birthday party....or a tea party....wedding or baby shower....it just depends on how you did the cake and tinted it...you could even boy it up and tint the cake like camouflage or just use really bright colors...(not that my boys didn't like these....as i mentioned the oooohs and aaaahhs....but to me they look like little wedding cakes...!)
