Miniature Devil’s Food Cake by Melissa McKelvey
I decided to make tiny cakes…I think the thought came to me when I was trying to fall asleep one day last week. Anyway… This tiny cake is sitting on a bread plate…if that helps you to visualize how small it is. These are made from a slight adaptation of the Devil’s Food Cake recipe in Baking Illustrated…I added more chocolate, lots of espresso powder and some Godiva and Starbucks Coffee liqueurs to the mix. Then I made a mocha buttercream frosting. From there, I spent a lot of time slicing and icing itty bitty cake layers. But they’re so precious that it was worth the time.
