What's cuter than a full-size layer cake and more festive than a cupcake? A mini layer cake! Jordan from Oh Happy Day has a tutorial for making these adorable cakes, which are baked in repurposed tin cans.Clean tin cans are simply greased, floured and used in place of the usual cake pan. These particular cakes took about 25 minutes to bake, then were cut into four layers and frosted. Tiny cakes like this look much easier to handle than the usual 9-inch layers, yet are nearly as impressive.
We can imagine making one for a special someone on her birthday or an assortment for a party or shower. Either way, these cute little cakes are hard to resist.
