Virtual Vases Mini Cakes

Flower Picks sprouting from whimsical candy-covered-cake containers delight. Use Square and Round Cut-Outs to shape vase bases and to cut forms from a Sheet Pan cake.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

In advance: Make candy platforms. Using candy colors, tint portions of melted candy yellow, pink and blue. Place large Cut-Outs on non-stick pan and fill 1/8 in. high with melted candy; refrigerate until firm and unmold. Reserve excess candy.

Step 2

Bake and cool 1-layer cake using firm-textured batter such as pound cake. Using medium Cut-Outs, imprint top of cake with squares and circles. Cut out at imprints using paring knife.

Step 3

Cover cakes with reserved melted candy. Immediately insert toothpick in center of cake top to make a hole for flower pick. Attach cakes to candy platforms with melted candy. Remove toothpick; refrigerate cakes until firm. Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick. For square cakes, cut 2 x 1/4 in. strips for sides and an 8 x 1/4 in. strip for top border; attach with damp brush. For circle cakes, cut dots with narrow end of tip 12 and an 8 x 1/4 in. strip for top border; attach fondant with damp brush. Insert picks.
