Wilton Red and Pink Sparkle Gel layered on buttercream icing makes these lip-shaped mini cakes perfect for any expression of love. Baked in the Wilton 12-Cavity Silicone Lips Mold, these mini cakes are great desserts for Valentine?s Day or any day.
Bake cakes. Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool mini cakes in lip mold supported by cookie sheet. Unmold cakes according to package directions.
Ice cakes. Prepare buttercream icing following recipe directions. Tint portions rose, and red. For half of the mini cakes, use tip 5 in cut decorating bag and rose icing to outline and fill in bottom and top lips. Pat smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch. Use pink sparkle gel** to cover icing. Use tip 3 in cut decorating bag and rose icing to draw line dividing lips.
For remaining mini cakes, use tip 5 in cut decorating bag and red icing to outline and fill in bottom and top lips. Pat smooth. Use red sparkle gel** to cover icing.
** Sparkle gel does not dry hard ? it remains sticky to the touch ? so plan to serve these treats rather than bagging them for gift giving.
