The best things come in small packages. I’m not always too sure that statement is totally correct but it fits well with what I baked today… The micro cupcake! Ta-dah. No longer will people say a cupcake is too sweet for them or use the excuse of being on a diet as this cake is good for everyone.
I guess now I’ve ‘big’d’ it up you should really try it.
I’ve always had a fascination with objects in miniature size (please, no rude jokes!) Model railway, model villages, the tiny versions of Bournville and Dairy milk chocolate bars you used to get in tins of Roses. I love the way they are so cute, like full size but shrunk down. So today when I was making some full size lemon cupcakes I had a little bit of mixture left over. It would have only really been enough for one or two cakes but I decided to use the petite four cases to make tiny versions. I’m really happy with how they came out considering they weren’t in a baking tin to cook as I don’t have one that small. I thought they might spread too much but the cases held really well.
I’m probably really late and these were fashionable last year or something but I think they’d make a great wedding cake or look lovely on a cake stand for afternoon tea. If only I had a cake box small enough then I’d make more of these cute little cakes.
