(Please share with us your favorite Cake Recipe)
Cake is good, but icing is better. It’s kind of how I feel about cake.
I like cake, I do, but I’m not a huge cake person. I am horrible at making cakes, icing cakes, decorating cakes. I just don’t have the patience, I suppose.
But Little cakes? I can handle little cakes.
These little cakes are baked in cans. Cans!
Like the kind you get vegetables and canned soup in.
How cute would these be for a party? Not cupcakes! But Mini Tall Cakes for everyone! So cool!
Or Maybe you just need a little cake to satisfy that cake craving. Maybe you want to surprise someone with a little birthday cake? Whatever it is, these little cake are pretty neat.
Now, don’t judge these little cakes on my pictures, I’m a horrible cake decorator. But hubby loved it, that’s all that matters 😉
Makes about 12 cakes (depending on how full you fill the cans)
(but I just make one at a time, using batter from the fridge or freezer)
Cans- Both top and bottom removed, washed and label free
