I want to make some fancy small cakes.

Could I make a sheet type cake and then punch out shapes with a cookie cutter type deal so I could stack layers?

Would certain kinds of cake work better to try this?

Any ideas appreciated!

Cheesecake is NOT cake.

It's pie. Or pudding. Or something. But it isn't cake.

I want to do something kind of goofy and you can't decorate and layer a damn pie.

Here's a blog with some interesting cake visuals and recipes. I assume you do not want to do cupcakes:

Aunty Yochana shows you her goodies.

You can ignore the first recipe for Apricot Brandy Cheesecake.

Can I ignore the meat floss buns?

Can anyone?

Just kidding.

I LOVE those triangle torte type cakes but I can't seem to find the recipes for all the things she shows.

Now I'm hungry for savory cake.

Savory waffles are a big thing in restaurants here now. I haven't tried them yet but I'm willing and ready when the opportunity arises.

Ohhhhh baby....

Savory cake..... cheesecake.....

I'm reminded of an old recipe I have around here somewhere for gorgonzola cheesecake with polenta crust.

Heaven I tell ya. A real "WOW" food.

I've also made some great savory custards....

Ummm..... savory......

Thanks Green Witch. I'm saving that link. Some of those recipes look divine. So different too. Yum.

Kind of like that CJane but sillier, more goofball birthday than tea party.

Mr. B's birthday is tomorrow and we don't really do gifts and such but Mo and I like to do something a little fun.

How about just baking the cake batter in mini cake pans? A lot of craft stores have novelty cake pans....

Do you have a Michael's or someplace like that near you? Michael's has neat mini cake pans:

Australian Lamingtons Recipe. you can cut the cake into shapes if you want. great recipie for the kids to help with

The easy way

Ingredients

* 1 slab sponge cake (one day old)
* 4 cups icing sugar
* 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1/2 cup milk
* 2 - 3 cups desiccated coconut

To make the icing

* Cool the cake for at least half an hour in the Fridge or Freezer, then cut into squares or fingers
* Combine the Sugar and Cocoa in a large bowl
* Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan until the butter is melted.
* Add to the sugar/cocoa mixture and mix to a fluid yet not runny consistency

To put it all together

* Make a production line of Sponge Fingers, Chocolate Icing mixture in a bowl, coconut in a shallow container or plate, and a cooling rack with paper underneath.
* Using a fork dip the sponge fingers into the icing, roll it in the coconut covering it well, and then place on to the rack to dry.
* Once they have dried, place in an airtight container and leave to "mature" for at least a few hours, preferably overnight, before eating.
