3 easy mini buttercream cakes- Rosie’s Dessert Spot

In this video tutorial I will demonstrate how to create 3 different buttercream decorated mini cakes.

All three cakes were baked in 4 inch round cake tins. The recipe I used was a chocolate cake recipe:

320 grams butter
2 + 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
3 cups of self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cup cocoa powder
4 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
for the video instructions, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV47F4qtBeE
THIS RECIPE WILL FILL 3X 4″ ROUND CAKE TINS WITH A LITTLE TO SPARE. you may decide to make cupcakes out of the extra left over 🙂

200 grams caster sugar
200 grams water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or a liquor of your choice
1. Combine water in a sauce pan over medium heat. Allow the sugar to dissolve in the water, stirring gently.
2. Allow the mixture to come to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly before adding in your vanilla

250 grams unsalted butter
500 grams icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
