Mini Cakes – Santa Stop Here!


How about these miniature cakes – teeny tiny cakes made in mini baking cups from Iced Jems.  Just like the cupcake sized Christmas cakes then one full batch of 8” Christmas cake mix is going to make a ton, 50+ of these teeny tiny ones so just make a part mixture or mix up your baking with a variety of sizes, unless of course you want to make 50?!
