There are a lot of reasons I enjoy blogging, but one of them is the excuse I have to make things whenever without needing a special occasion because
“I’ll blog it!”.
Case in point: these super fun mini non-birthday cakes!
These became a thing when I was looking around for something to make and saw that I had a box of confetti cake mix and icing in my cupboard already. Not having to go out and buy anything was the decision maker for me. But I wanted to do more then just bake a cake so I decided to jump on the “naked cake” bandwagon and put my own twist on it by making them mini and throwing even more sugary confetti on it. Let’s just say I wasn’t concerned about counting calories on these little guys ;)
I also made the kite and hot air balloon cake toppers and you can check out the DIY here!
What you need:
– confetti cake
– glass or round cookie cutter
– bread knife
– Fruit Loops or sprinkles
– adorable cake toppers (diy here)
Bake your cake in a 9×13 pan and let it cool completely. Use the glass or cookie cutter to cut circles of cake. Each circle will make 2 layers. I just tapped the glass with my hand until the cake piece slid out. If you’re having trouble try spraying the inside of the glass with non-stick spray first.
Use the bread knife to cut each circle in half length-wise to get 2 thinner layers.
Starting at the outside edge ice each cake on the top only. Use a bit more icing then you normally would so that you will be able to see it once they’re stacked.
When all 3 layers are iced stack them up on top of each other.
Put a handful of Fruit Loops in a ziploc bag and crush them with the base of a glass or rolling pin until they are a coarse powder. Use a spoon to sprinkle it on the top layer of the cake.
If you want to get fancy you can use some icing to stick whole Fruit Loops around the bottom of the cake too.
Add some super happy cake toppers and have a party! No special occasion needed :)
