How to Make Mini Mom Cakes

Stacked Mini Cakes

To make the mini letter cakes, split the batter in half between two 9 x 13 cake pans. This will make two thin cakes and it’s a lot cleaner than baking one cake and cutting it.

You can bake them at the same time and they cook fairly quickly since they’re split into two pans.

Once the cakes are baked and cooled use mini letter cookie cutters to cut out the word “mom.”

Use cookie cutters and cut the letters out straight from the pan once the cake was cooled.

Place the letters on a cookie sheet and then prepare the frosting to pipe in the center and top of the cakes.

Single Layer Mini Cakes

Use two boxed cake mixes and bake in one 18″ sheet pan with 1″ sides.

Once baked and cooled, use 3″ cookie cutters to cut out MOM. You will get about 6 MOM cakes with this method.

Pipe a single layer of vanilla frosting over the top and garnish with edible flowers.

Tips For Frosting Mini Cakes

  • Since the cake letters are about 2 1/2 – 3 inches it would be hard and messy to frost them with a knife.
  • Instead, add the frosting to a piping bag with a 1/2″ hole, pipe the frosting onto the letters, and then stack them.
  • Make a single-layered cake for a more straightforward recipe.
  • Use any cake recipe and flavor you like; just make sure you double it for the single-layer cake.
