Cynthia C. of the Brooklyn-based blog Two Red Bowls is the queen of miniature cakes. Click this link and you’ll see what we mean. 

True to form, today’s cake is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but it is meant to celebrate something much bigger: Two Red Bowls just turned two years old.

C. bakes the cake’s tiny tiers by filling porcelain ramekins with almond-flavored batter. She makes frosting from a mixture of rose-infused cream, mascarpone, confectioner’s sugar, and slathers it between each cake layer. Lastly, she decorates the top with rose petals. 

The finished product is perfect for a party of two. Or one, if you’re doing some celebrating of your own.
