What You’ll Need
You do not need to be a professional baker to get started with this mini cake recipe. All you need to have is a basic baking knowledge along with basic baking elements. For this recipe, get a non-stick cookie sheet, icing bag with decorating tips, icing coloring (food coloring), and circle cookie cutters. Things like parchment paper, an oven, toothpicks, rolling pin, a mixer, and bowls are also required as baking reaches to the final step.
How to Do
Roll your dough to 1/2″ thick, flatten it and let it chill for some time. Once it’s done, start cutting your cookies with the help of circular moulds and keep them on a baking sheet. As you are going to stack the cookies one over the other, make sure you cut them into three different sizes. The ideal sizes you can prefer are 2″, 1.5″ and 1.25″.
Once you are done with one set of cookies, put them into the oven. To get better results, start with the first stack and leave remaining for the next slot. Doing so, you will be able to see whether cookies are coming out perfect or you need to bring some changes to the cookie thickness or baking temperature. Once all cookies are perfectly baked, you can get started with the décor part. Get some icing and get it colored with your favorite color.
