DIY Mini Bundt Cakes

Tiny bundt cakes are the cutest treats to offer guests! They would even make wonderful take-home sweets! Make your own lovely flower-topped cakes in two simple steps.

You’ll need:

  • Mini bundt cakes (We baked our own with a mini bundt cake pan)
  • Icing
  • Fresh flowers (We used white roses)

First, weave one “looped” layer of icing around the cake, followed by a second layer on top. Cut the stems off the flowers and add the blooms on the top of each cake.
