Mini Cakes for Mini Peeps

Let’s just say, it’s been a busy couple of months….hence no posts.

There were definitely some fun orders that made up these busy months, and I’d like to share some with you now.

First off was three birthdays in one, if that makes any sense.  A coworker of mine was having a joint birthday party for her son and two of his friends.  She decided mini cakes for each of the birthday people and cupcakes for the rest of the bunch.  These mini cakes may be tiny (think less than 4″ tall), but they definitely pack a punch.

Let’s first start with the cupcakes.  A bunch of cupcakes is nice and all, but a bunch of cupcakes with sprinkles is better.



…and even better with handmade cupcake toppers.

But we’re not even to the fun part yet.  Next up were the individual mini cakes.  Each cake was specially designed (theme-wise) by the birthday person, including type of frosting, type of cake, color, and decoration.  Each kid knew EXACTLY what they wanted.




Shea, the lady of the trio, wanted everything princess.

Anderson wanted Oakland A’s everything, and let me tell you that logo was NOT easy.

And finally, Lane wanted Dinosaurs.  I have to say, this turned out to be my favorite.

It was nice to make something special for each birthday kid while also making something everyone could enjoy.  I think this is a fun take on a traditional birthday cake.

    • I use royal icing transfers for my letters and names. It makes it so much easier to follow a letter/font template and can the royal icing transfers can be made weeks in advance. Thanks for the question, Monica!
