Mini Valentine's Day Cakes

I made these fun little cakes for my mom, her best friend and 2 of my sisters for Valentine's Day. They were so tiny and I loved decorating them so much! I picked a color scheme and wanted them to look like they were sort of a "set" of cakes that you would buy together! Haha
Here is a picture that shows just how small the cakes were...
I put them next to a 26 oz can of salt for comparison. If you were to take away the topper and the cake base, they would be the same height as the salt can. =)
All 4 cakes are white chocolate macadamia nut cake with white chocolate buttercream filling. I chose that flavor because last year for our summer vacation, I made white chocolate macadamia nut cupcakes with the white chocolate frosting and they were a big hit with my family. =)

Nayleen's Cinderella Cake

Nayleen's mom sent me a picture of a cake that she liked and wanted me to make one like it. The cake in the picture was a 2 tier cake so I added the middle tier for more servings. I attempted to make fondant swags but those were more complicated than I imagined! So I figured out a much simpler way to make them using my clay extruder.

Abby's mom wanted me to recreate a cake that I had made a while back. =)

Leah's Hello Kitty Cake

A mini 2 tiered Hello Kitty cake for Leah. Her mom sent me pics of the party plates that they would be using so that's what I used for inspiration. =)

Matthew Turns 6

The only request that I had for this Yo Gabba Gabba cake was for it to have all of the characters on it. I found a couple of cakes that I really liked the color and the patterns on so I just used those as inspiration for this cake. =)
