I wouldn’t do fondant. Most people don’t eat it and to me, if I wasn going to eat a mini cake I would want to eat all of it.

I think you could get the buttercream frosting smooth just using the Viva papertowel trick and a mini offset spatula.

Take a look at this from Williams Sonoma:


The piping is pretty simple, but very effective. If you want to cover the entire cake in frosting, do a confectioner’s sugar glaze, tinted different colors if you like, then pipe a pretty design or flower on top.

Also, the “Viva trick” is for frosting that crusts when it dries. Basically you drape the paper towel over the surface of the frosting and smooth it with your hands. It works pretty well on large cakes, but might be too difficult on the tiny ones!

An easy way to make the buttercream smooth is to wet your wide metal spatula. After you ice your cake, get your spatual wet and then smooth out the frosting. When the spatula starts to stick, wet it again and smooth as neccessary. Use long smooth strokes with the spatula to get the best results. You can also use a butter knife or skinny spatula, but they are not as effective and don’t cover as much surface.
