Cute Little Cakes

I went to Joann Crafts the other day to buy some new cake pans as I was in a baking mood.  I wanted two  six inch diameter by three inch deep pans.  They didn't have two that weren't dented.
Instead, I bought a little box that had four mini cake pans in it.  They each have an impression in the center.

After you bake the cakes, you fill the center and then put them together so the filling is inside.

I used devil's food cake mix.  Then I cut the tops off so they'd be level and then removed from the pans. I filled the centers with chocolate mousse.

Then of course I frosted with chocolate frosting.

One cake mix fills the four pans twice, so I froze four and made two cakes.

I wanted to show how cute and small they are so I put them next to the Coke can.  I figured everyone knows the size of a Coke can.  However, my Facebook friends kidded me for drinking a diet Coke with triple chocolate cake.  Silly people.

We actually divided each cake into thirds.  Perfect!
Thanks for stopping by,
