Baking happens to be one of my favorite activities, especially to do with the kids. I have great memories baking with my mother during my childhood. Which is probably why I now enjoy baking with my own children. With the recent release of Little Venice Cake Company I was excited to try a few new products with the kids. In the spirit of Halloween we made mini Halloween cakes.
We used the deep circle cutters for our mini Halloween cakes, but the possibilities are endless with the cutters. You could stack them and make mini wedding cakes and even use them for a first birthday smash cake. Our initial plan was to make petit fours with the pound cake but this was a spur of the moment change and we love the way they turned out.
Begin by cutting your pound cake to the desired thickness. Once your cakes are cut frost them with icing or in our case use candy melts like you would with cake pops. Pour the melted candy melts on top, using a spatula to spread if needed. Then add sprinkles, cupcake toppers, or other decorations to finish them off.
