I love this idea! Are these little cakes adorable or what? I think they would be fun to serve at a bridal party or rehearsal dinner. Or you can give them away as take home favors for small dinner parties.
To make the cakes:
Step 1. Remove paper from the empty can and clean it. Grease and flour the inside of the can (or spray well with cooking spray). To bake fill can a little over half full with batter. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes but not all ovens are consistent so make sure you check them by dipping in a toothpick until it comes out clean. Let cakes cool completely before removing.
Step 2. After you remove the cakes use a bread knife and cut off the rounded top. Then cut the cakes into little layers. Be very careful to cut them flat and even.
Step 3. To frost pipe a thick line of frosting around the very edge of the cake. Then with a wet knife smooth over the frosting to make it consistent and go all the way to the edge. Gently place the next layer on top and repeat until you are finished. Pipe the top of the cake with frosting and smooth with a wet knife.
