It’s that time again when I make some thing small and some thing sweet to give as gifts. This year for Rosha Shana which is the Jewish New Year I made this cute Fondant Apple Mini Cakes and of course some more of my cute apple cupcakes. Those I make almost every year.
Well I wanted to make some green ones too but the kids wanted the red ones so. Some of these are airbrushed and some are covered in red fondant.
If you want to keep them simple the easiest is to buy pre-colored red fondant and cover these all at ones. Airbrushing helps to give the cakes more character and play with colors.
I wanted to airbrush and see how I do with them. I think they were ok. I liked how they turned out. I do wish I had a little more of the yellow and green showing thru. The problem with the dark colors such as red is that they do not let the other colors show thru. Next time I must make some green ones too – just for fun.
Well I did take a video for you while I was working on these as they are super simple and easy to make.
Recipe for the mini cakes.
You can use any of my cake recipes and frosting recipes from this blog. They should all work perfectly fine with this cake. There really is not much carving as I used a silicon dome pans–
These silicon pans work great and take away any need for carving really. And because they are silicon they tend to have many uses other than baking too.
