My friend Casi needed some baked goods for a fundraiser a while back. It was decided that my standard cupcakes wouldn't fly (too messy, hard to package individually). Instead, I decided to experiment with my new mini-bundt pan that I posted about here.
This time, I tried Sassy Grandma's lemon cake and my strawberry cake. I usually use both of these batters for cupcakes, or even a full size bundt with a glaze so I had high hopes.
After baking and freezing the cakes, I sliced them into small bite-sized pieces.
I managed to get about 40-50 slices per cake.
The cake is pretty dense and moist, so I had to cut it while it was a cold as possible to keep the slices clean and the cakes from falling apart.
After cutting and separating all the pieces, I placed them 4-6 in a bag and tied with a little color coded tag and some thick white ribbon (found at IKEA).
I managed to get about 30-40 individual bags out of 3 mini-bundts.
I simply piled them into a basket (of course!) and sent them on their merry way!
I think it turned out pretty cute and seemed to work great in a bake sale environment. It's a good way to donate something a little different from the usual brownie/cookie fare.
Plus, there was extra batter set aside for a special surprise for the Man. More details on that later.
