Mini cakes for the sweet tooth

There are two exquisite patisseries near my house and although I’m trying to get fit and eat well, I can’t deny myself a little sweet treat every now and again.  In my daydreams I sometimes wish I worked there creating these lovely mini cakes – edible works of art that are an absolute delight.  A big cake usually cuts into eight pieces, so I thought I’d profile eight beautiful mini cakes here.  Enjoy (preferably with a good coffee or tea in a china cup)!!

    I did this this week for a welcome morning tea. I bought a two each of three really nice slices and cut them in four. They looked beautifully inviting without shattering the calorie alarms. It was a lovely way to showcase my local bakery too 🙂

    On the other hand, I get really annoyed at McCafe asking ridiculous amounts for their tiny tastes… strangely inconsistent, but McCafe annoys me anyway …
