With Mother's day around the corner here is a sweet mini treat that's semi-homemade and so easy to make. It's the perfect fun and easy treat to help your kids make for their mother.
Here is what you dads will need to get started.
My first stop was the frozen food department and Sara Lee pound cake.
Then on to the cake decorating department, for embellishment candy flowers and paper cups.
Wilton has many to choose from now, making it easy to customize your treats.
You will also need heavy cream and semisweet chocolate chips to make Ganache frosting.
Tool's you'll need:
Small Round Biscuit Cutter
Next follow the Ganache recipe, I've added the link to Martha Stewart's recipe which I favor. Once the Ganache is done divide the recipe in half and thicken one that is spreadable and set aside. Keeping the other pourable glaze-like consistency. Now slice the pound cake to the thickness of your biscuit cutter, about a 1/4 inch slices or thinner.
Lay out the slices and take the biscuit cutter as shown.
Save the end piece to make little loaf cakes.
Now you have little round cakes.
Take spreadable Ganache (If need be, to thicken mixture add some powder sugar and mix well.)
Spread a layer of Ganache between each mini cake layer and then add the top cake layer. Just as you would a regular size cake.
Place on wire cake rack.
Once done take the warm pour-able/glaze Ganache and pour evenly over each cake. Let set for 10 to 15 minutes or cool in the refrigerator for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Carefully remove cakes from the wire rack and place them in paper cups.
Press candy flowers to the center of each cake.
You can now box or plate up these sweet treats for mom.
Happy Mother's day !
