DIY Mini Wedding Cake Favors


Edible wedding cake favors are a guest's best friend! These cute mini cakes are simple to make and affordable as well!



Supplies you'll need:

  1. Powdered sugar

  2. Sifter

  3. Skewers or toothpicks

  4. Plain round cutters, various sizes

  5. Chocolate sheet cake or brownie sheet, 1" deep





Step 1:

Whether it's made from scratch or your friend Betty Crocker, bake your cake flat in a shallow sheet pan so it only rises up to an inch.  Once cool, trim the top with a serrated knife using a sawing motion to form an even, flat surface.  This will be flipped over, so don't worry about imperfections!

Step 2:

Both brownies and cake work well, but with the latter you will have to be more careful to achieve clean edges.  Carefully twist the round cutters into the sheet cake with desired sizes for each tier. For this example, we used 1.25", 2.5", and 3.5" cutters.



Step 3:

Assemble the tiers on top of each other, with the flattest surface facing up (usually the bottom-side of the cake).  Insert toothpick to secure tiers together.  If using skewers, measure against the assembled mini cake, and trim a few millimeters short of the full height so it doesn't protrude. 





Step 4:

Lightly dust cakes with powdered sugar.  Wrap, and enjoy!
