Snack cakes, Swiss cake rolls, or similar cakes
Edible embellishments (optional)
Food picks, toothpicks, or similar things
Let’s go ahead and talk about it: some people don’t have guests at their weddings – all they have are a couple of witnesses who aren’t hosting a wedding shower. And, some people don’t have giant wedding budgets, for gowns, table runners, and tons of food. Shh, it doesn’t require a big announcement. If you’re the person who is having a very small wedding, make a very small cake. Anyone can easily present the happy couple – even if it’s you – with a miniature cake, that is not only elegant, but also delicious. Want to know even more? It’s a no-bake cake that takes only minutes to prepare!
Snack cakes give you lots of options for making a two or three-tier wedding cake. Choose two different kinds, or add a different type of dessert, to create the cake that you want. One is made by taking two cakes, such as Ding Dongs, and making each one a tier. Frost the first Ding Dong, put four food picks in it, set the next cake on them, and frost it. Add embellishments, such as frosting flowers (optional).
Swiss cake rolls make a nice tiered cake, too. Cut one roll into three equal-length pieces. Group them together in the center of a small plate so that they’re all standing up. Encircle that group with a row of Swiss cake roll pieces. Frost the cake. Make another, slightly smaller cake on top of that one. Start with one cake roll piece in the center and encircle it with a row of cake roll pieces. Frost the second cake.
No matter what design of wedding cake that you make, it might be a miniature, but when you add flowers, the cake looks even larger. Take pictures, send to faraway friends and family, and they’ll think you had a fantastic wedding! Simply use something to hold flowers, such as an upside-down shot glass. Tape or glue silk flowers around it, set it on the bigger cake, and then set the smaller cake on top. Put some silk flowers on the small cake to top it.
There are many variations of miniature wedding cakes that you can make. Use one square snack cake, and one round one, for a certain look. Stack three round ones for a different appearance. Separate the cakes with slices of fruit – like bananas – instead of flowers. Just because you’re not having a large wedding doesn’t mean that you don’t want to at least have a spectacular – albeit small – wedding cake!
