  2. Prepare, bake and cool cake according to package directions.
  3. Spray 8 (6 oz.) custard or ramekin cups with non-stick cooking spray. Unfold phyllo, spraying one sheet at a time with non-stick cooking spray. Bunch each sheet up loosely. Place one sheet in each cup. Make sure you have jagged points sticking up. Continue to fill all eight cups in the manner.
  4. Place cups on cookie sheet and bake in oven 15 to 20 minutes or until completely browned. Cool.

great wedding cake tiers

great wedding cake tiers

Great compliment getter when I'm baking wedding cakes. Instead of trimming the top of the layers off even with the baking pan as they teach in Wilton cake classes, I place a linen dish towel (used only for this) over the layer immediately after removing from the oven. I place a large cutting board over the towel, weight it down with something heavy & let steam 5 min. & remove . The layer is dense-moist-pound cake texture- easy to handle, stack, decorate & deliver . EASY TO CUT & SERVE !!!

Dusting Items

Dusting Items

When dusting items with powdered sugar always dust them on a piece of wax paper away from the final display to prevent dusting outside the intended area. The excess powdered sugar is collected by the paper and easily transferred to a storage container.
