Miniature Paper Cake Cases

We've just been making some miniature pastries (surprise surprise!) and thought we'd share with you one of the elements that we needed to make - miniature paper cake cases!

  1. Hey guys, you muct be psychic - I was talking to another 'foodie' today and I said I wish I could buy real paper cake cases!!
    I do intend to try to make some but it is always the wretched 'time' factor.
    They look superb.

  5. Thank you everyone!!
    Of course it's homemade, and obviously it's a secret ;-)
    ...and part of the secret is throwing an awful lot of them to the bin....I mean A LOT :-(
    The choice of the paper is a big part of it , and I used this one by chance, and have no idea where to get some more because I had it for years "sleeping" with piles of various"might be useful one day" types of paper....so I might confess I got quite lucky!!

  6. Parfait!
    Il faut que j'essaye d'en faire moi aussi, ça ajoute une touche de réalisme incroyable!
    Et tant pis si on en jette 20 pour en avoir 1 :D

  7. Your miniature cake cases are as sweet as your cake miniatures. Incredible - so tiny.

    Wonderful!
