Is known that children’s imagination has no limits and that their creativity is exceptional. If you give them a suitable material with which can play around and do something, you will be surprised of their curiosity, skill and joy that occurs when they create something with his hard work.
Enormous is the happiness on a child’s face to which you give a colorful mixture that can develop with rolling pin, chop cutters in different shapes as flowers, butterflies, modeled animals, mushrooms or even their favorite cartoon heroes. It takes a little time, fondant, powder sugar, moulds that you have on hand, some candy that you can decorate and play can begin.
Mini cakes are unusual dessert that can brighten any celebration, and their preparation does not require too much effort.They can be theme for birthday or holiday and be a great desserts for the youngest. The cups can be made of a more stable chocolate cake. When I say stable, I think the cake that must have, e.g, three crusts that are not made from dried egg whites (meringue bark), filling by which cake is covered must be surefooted and not too row, fruit is not desirable because it can affect on the stability of this type mini cake. Cake must be done the day before, to “harden” in the refrigerator.
Another simpler option is to create, for a start, plasma cake. The resulting mixture can manually shape or shape can be obtained by using a mold, such as glass. In this case, it is necessary to pre-coat the inside of the glass with sticking foils for easy removal, spread the mixture well and as carefully as possible remove that. If you work with a chocolate cake, the shape can be cut by hand or with the help of a cutter or mold which is in required shape.
Each “mini cake” must firstly be coated with butter cream (butter soften at room temperature, mix with mixer with 1-2 spoons of powdered sugar). Layer that you apply should not be too thick.
Working with fondant
Fondant can be purchased in a variety of colors, and if you buy a basic white fondant, my advice is to paint colors with edible gel, because is the easiest to use. The surface on which you develop fondant you need to put on powdered sugar on the fondue to would not paste to the substrate. If you do not have a variety of cutters which would you work, you can draw the desired shape on the baking paper, cut it in the required shape and that template use to cut fondant.
All you need is a circle that will cover the top surface of cup, the rectangle which will cover the laterally and “handle” of cup. First set the cut circle on the top surface of the cake, cover the cake with rectangle. The rest of the design depends on your imagination. The cups hold in the refrigerator until use.
