Cakes that make a short-but-sweet statement
In an age of over-the-top culinary masterpieces, it can be refreshing to see creations on the smaller side. Though they’re only two tiers or less, and some only a serving size, these cute-as-a-button cakes still manage to make a statement. In fact, they’re how we like just about everything: short but sweet!
