Made these mini cakes for a bridal shower and the client and guests could not stop raving about them.
I found this quite easy to make the hardest part was the topping. I broke plenty of chocolate before I got the accent peices just right. I suggest making them a bit thick and freezing them and assembling as close to service as possible.
