Multi-Tier Mini Cake Pan

Multi-Tier Mini Cake Pan

Over the past few years, cupcakes have found a solid niche in the world of weddings. The fact that they’re easy to serve and cute makes them a great choice, even though you loose a little of the traditional look of a cake. Wedding cakes are the biggest project that a baker can take on. They’re not necessarily as difficult to make as some of the more advanced pastry doughs out there, but they are very time-intensive because of their size and do require that you pay more attention to structure than with a regular cake due to the weight of the layers. This Multi-Tier Mini Cake Pan creates a hybrid between a wedding cake and a wedding cupcake because it produces cupcake-sized three-tier wedding cakes! The cakes don’t have separate layers, but come out as one ready-to-decorate piece. They are 4-inches in diameter and 4-inches high at their peak.

This nonstick pan only bakes four cakes at a time, so it’s not entirely ideal for catering a really large wedding, but it wouldn’t be too difficult to make a few batches for a smaller group or for an anniversary. And, of course, the little cakes could be decorated to look like non-wedding cakes for everyday occasions when you want to put the pan to use, as well.

    Oooo…I’m smitten with this tiered tin—never seen one before (must not be spending enough time in the baking supply store or shopping online). While as you suggest, it would be perfect for weddings—I think it’s perfect for everyday, individual, themed cakes. For a family of four, you could do so much with these: strawberry shortcakes, cherry cake drizzled with a little chocolate ganache or maybe little carrot cakes decorated with tiny fondant carrots… Ok, looks like I might be investing in 1 of these tins. Thanks for bringing them to my attention!

    I love these!

    I recently bought a copy of Small Batch Baking – I would think the cake recipes in the cookbook would work well in these pans!

    These cupcakes are great for edible wedding favors. You can even make mini cupcakes that are a reflection of your wedding cake and give these as presents to guests in your wedding. Most of the guests can’t taste your wedding cake and through the mini cupcakes they can share a bite of the actual couple’s cake.

    This is genious…I wonder if you could get away with making multiple flavors on each layer?

    This pan is awesome, although my cake didn’t quite look as clean as the one in the picture. LOL
    I used the recipe that comes with it and divided the batter in half. I then added raspberry jam to one half of batter and lemon juice and zest to the other half. The swirled the two into the cake pans. The best way to do this is pour both batter in at the same time, much like making a half & half milkshake. Then using a skewer I swirled the two halves together. Talk about yummy!!!
    I frosted them with cream cheese frosting and then drizzled raspberry jam over the top and sides.
    The little cakes are quite difficult to frost and next time I’ll use a ganache or pourable type icing.
    Four stars for the pan.
