Pastel Mini Cakes for Easter
Pastel Mini Cakes for Easter – layers of vanilla and pastel coloured cake, frosted with pastel coloured buttercream and decorated with Cadbury´s mini eggs.
I think by now you guys have realised I adore Easter, along with Xmas it´s my favourite holiday.. I love celebrating the time with special family and friends but also to remember how fortunate I am.. I have so many reasons to say THANK YOU!!
There´s a song by Hillsong (a very popular Australian Christian group) that I love to listen to during this precious time called SOVEREIGN HANDS.. I always get goose bumps when I listen to it (scenes from “The Passion of the Christ” movie so not for sensitive viewers but you can always just close your eyes and listen to the lyrics).. if you´d like to see/hear it, click here in YouTube 🙂
For this post I would like to introduce to you 5 mini pastel layer cakes.. all frosted in different pastel colours and decorated differently.. I can just imagine them on a Easter dessert table.. how cute would that be.. I´m obsessed with pastels these days!!
In my last post I show you how to make these cute mini easter egg wreaths but this time I used it to decorate with and the result is so cute! I just love it!
Not only were these decorated in pastels on the outside but on the inside too.. I baked 4 different pastel coloured sheet cakes (in turquoise, peach, yellow & salmon) and used a cookie cutter to cut out the circles for each layer. This way you can make quite a few mini cakes at the same time.
The cakes were vanilla flavoured as was the frosting/buttercream I used on the outside.. For the filling I used a delicious combination which I absolutely love.. I´m going to share it with you guys very soon in a new blog post 😉 I will say that the filling is what made these cakes delicious 🙂
The pastel blue cake was a gift for a friend who recently had a baby, I used the Easter theme to symbolize three baby birds (made of light blue speckled mini eggs, orange fondant for their beaks and an edible black marker for their eyes) waiting in their chocolate nest for their mamma to bring them foodies.. adorable is all I can say..
I´m not sure if I´ll get another post done before Easter weekend.. so if I don´t, I would like to wish all of you and your families a very blessed Easter!!
