Brownie Mini Cakes  

Recently I've been sharing the goodies I made for my daughter's baby shower.  Her shower colors were shimmering gold, soft pink and white with succulents being the theme for our soon to join us baby girl.  

This is another glamorous and delicious treat and another way to serve mini cakes. 

The white mini cakes with the gold foil on them were my second try at homemade marshmallow fondant covered mini cakes.  The first ones I made in varying heights to make an interesting display, with triple chocolate brownie filling.  I was going to leave them white and top them with the gumpaste succulents I'd made, to co-ordinate with the main cake.  They were really cute just setting them on top for the picture.  I photoshopped sprinkles of gold petal dust on some to see if I'd like the results.  I think I would have. 

It's such fun doing projects with my daughters who live away.  They tell me what they want up front, but as I'm working I text photos and we decide together what to do.  We debated over whether to leave them like this or attempt my first watercolor painting with petal dusts mixed with vodka.  We decided to go ahead and try.  I used rose gold, gold and pink petal dusts mixed with vodka in different designs of ombre and watercolor effects.  

The end effect was too intense to go with the shower color scheme.  The rose gold was super dark, not soft.  For a while I thought I couldn't use them at all, but they were delicious and pretty and had been a LOT of work.  

When it was time to set up the shower, I had nothing to loose, so I cut each mini cake into slices.  They were really elegant with the dark chocolate inside, the white fondant ringing it and the varying metallic petal dusts on the outside.  It turned out that the smaller amounts of those colors worked wonderfully with the shower and in truth, they were so rich that the slices were better portions than the 2" diameter mini cakes.

Here you can see the gold foil mini cakes too and the name watercolor cookies (that was food coloring watercolor on royal icing), with just the edge of the succulents around the base of the cake showing.

I was so glad to be able to use them after all that work.  I doubt I'm the only one who occasionally has things not work out the way we planned and it's fun to see that thinking outside the box can save the day!
