Here comes the sun--flowers! Make maxi smiles with mini cakes that bloom with sweet flavor.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
Yellow food color, if desired
cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 325°F. Grease and lightly flour cups of sunflower mini pan, or spray pan with baking spray with flour.
Make cake batter as directed on box, adding food color to batter. Pour batter into pan, filling each cup about three-fourths full.
Bake 18 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pan to cooling rack, placing sunflower side up. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the chocolate chips onto center of each cake. After chips melt slightly, spread chocolate with knife. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store loosely covered.
Look for the sunflower mini pans at specialty cookware stores.
Add a few drops of yellow food color to cake mix batter to create a sunny color.
Arrange a bouquet of sunflower cakes on a large tray for a dessert buffet. Drizzle with glaze or dust with powdered sugar for a tasty variety.
