Mini food is much nicer than maxi-food. Maxi food is stomach-bloating, hip-fattening, heartburn-inducing. The tiny food can be caught in one hand, enjoyed in one bite. It can realize the whole experience of say a cake, within just three bites. Who hasn’t had the sort of day where you dream of tucking into a whole cake for a whole lot of sweet therapy? When this moment of self-indulgent, well, indulgence, is over, if your cake was only 2 inches wide, then what was the harm? And, the mini affords the baker more opportunities to hone their craft, to make tiny sugar flowers, to, well, stay up all night carving tiki huts and the like. Mini is therefore a win-win prospect. what mini's can you make? mini-trifles, mini-cakes (quite a lot different from cupcakes), mini-pies, mini-pot pies. So, I say, make minis.
