Rated 4 out of 5 by Colleynairy Confections from It can be a bit tricky to get the chocolate to cover evenly without any air bubbles or gaps. Thinning the chocolate helps with this, but can make it too fragile, so you must be careful if you choose to do this. Working with fondant at such a small scale also requires more skill and patience to create beautiful bows than if doing one for a full size cake. It should be noted that this is not a quick process, so make sure to plan accordingly. Personally, when I do any mini cakes, I fill them with buttercream frosting (just like you would a cupcake). Not too much, but I think it adds to taste and makes it more decadent. Another fun option on these is to use the recipe for cakeballs and instead of making a ball, make a square and then follow the rest of the directions from there. Regardless, I find these are always a hit! These also work in any color and can be modified for a wedding or a birthday. P.S. Don't forget that chocolate has a very low melt point and even though these are small, you will still want to provide your guests with plates.
