I made these at the beginning of the month for Oliver's Tiny Talk class one Friday. I meant to blog it at the time but somehow never got round to it - so I'm having a bit of a catch up and clear down of photos
Tiny Talk is a franchise run baby classes throughout the UK and Australia. It's for teaching babies and toddlers how to better communicate with their parents and carers through signing and play. I take Oliver to Maria's local group most Friday's in Attleborough / Norfolk. He absolutely LOVES it and Maria is a very enthusiastic teacher.
Oliver can sign a few things already and as he learns new words uses the signs alongside. He's learnt to say "Yes Please" and No Thank You" already this week and is also backing them up with signing.
These certainley didn't hang about - mummies and babies made sure of that :-)
The mini cakelets above are just a standard victoria sponge mix filled with fresh cream and jam. For the chocolatey ones - the recipe is HERE
What is a Cakelet ? It's a tiny little layer cake. A dainty and delicate little morsel - gone in a few little bites. Light enough and small enough that it can sit beside a cup of tea - balancing on the edge of a saucer and not ruin one's appetite.....
A mini cakelet is just a smaller version of the same - gone in just a couple of mouthfuls. It's similar in volume to a mini muffin / mini cupcake - but more ladylike or dressy for a summer garden party or to serve with afternoon tea and nibbles.
Make it simple - like miniature victoria sponges with just a teaspoon of cream and tiny bit of jam... dressing the top with a delicate covering of icing sugar. Or jazz it up with pretty crystalised flowers or intricate icing. As the baker, the choice is yours :-)
Like all our flexible silcone moulds, this mould can be used for chocolate, soap, cakes, orgonite, hard candy and many other uses. Our range of molds are all food safe and FDA approved.
Safe temperatures are from -40deg C to +230deg C - which is higher than most normal ovens go and way too hot for cakes !
Two of these moulds will fit on a standard baking sheet
