Our Custom Cake Baker Shares Small Cake Ideas For Small Parties

When it comes to celebrating, no food sets the scene like cake. We bake or order one for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or even the fact that it’s Friday! There’s just something about having a slice of the baked confection slathered with frosting and topped with an array of decorations that is hard to beat. With the many instances for celebrating, we sometimes opt for a smaller portion. Many people turn to cupcakes, but let’s not forget the subtle elegance of the mini cake!

What’s a Mini Cake?

Lindy Smith from Lindy’s Cakes defines a mini cake as a “small cake, usually between 5cm (2in) and 10cm (4in)” in diameter. Think of it like a normal tier cake shrunk down to cupcake size. Many custom cakes in Raleigh are mini cakes. These adorable stacks of goodness can be decked out in a variety of ways! From colored batters to decorative frosting to sprinkles and beyond, mini cakes can easily become Raleigh NC event cakes!
