Good Things Come in Small Packages - Mini Cupcakes!
I needed to do this & have been thinking about it for awhile. One of my customers always sends me cupcake articles & I love it. About a month ago, the article was about mini desserts. Interesting!
"The National Restaurant Association’s 2011 annual survey ranked bite-sized mini desserts No. 2 in the dessert trends category" hmmm... I should try that.
"At the Café des Architectes at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower hotel, mini desserts are popular because they’re easy on the waistline" That sounded good to me! I was sold. I had to make them.
So while making a cake for a restaurant I bake for, I had extra batter. Perfect time for Mini Cupcakes!
I had just bought these cute little polka dot liners so I was set to go.
Getting just the right amount of batter (about 3/4 full) is important so they don't look too small. The baking time is cu in half and you'll have to check the 1st batch to get an idea of timing.
A generous dollop of icing - use your regular icing tip and they're good to go. So cute and I was definitely tempted to try just one!
I'll be interested to see customers reactions. Will keep you posted.
If you have a chance, would love a follow and a comment! Thanks
