October 10th is National Cake Decorating Day!
What a great month for National Cake Decorating Day!
I have made these 6 Mini Cakes from a 1983 Wilton Mini Pumpkin Cake Pan that my Grandmother sent to me along with a bunch of other goodies this year, including the tip set that she used when she decorating Wedding Cakes many, many years ago! I can just imagine her, younger than I am now, piping away making wedding cakes, with her 3 children in the background, before fondant was even around! I am the oldest of her 7 Grandchildren. She was so supportive when I began baking and began taking all of the Wilton Decorating Classes. She used to teach cake decorating too! However all of this skipped a generation and I didn't know a thing about it until I actually got into decorating myself and we began talking and texting about it! Yes, I have one texting Grandma and she is super fast at it too!
These Mini Pumpkins are about the size of 2 cupcakes I would say.
I decorated them similar to the regular size Jack-O-Lantern Cake that I made a few days ago! The frosting is actually leftover frosting from that cake...so the big Jack-O-Lantern Cake had a family of Mini Jack-O-Lantern Cakes!
Of course the family loved them, each having there own little cake to eat and Grandma received her own Mini Pumpkin Cake over 900 miles away in the form of a text!
