ANC Online Auction: Noni Doni’s Tiny Cake (2)

One year after the practice tiny wedding cakes, Doni's obsessed with making tiny cakes with Swiss buttercream frosting.

Making tiny cakes is my new passion. I can make it any almost flavor except carrot cake (too chunky for a cake that small). These cakes are made from scratch, and feature my twin's chickens' organic eggs. The cakes are frosted with Swiss or French buttercream made with the same happy chicken eggs, and the best-quality butter.

This is Noni Doni's Tiny 4-layer white cake with French Frosting. Serves 4.

Cake choices are vanilla, chocolate, red velvet or yellow. Frosting? You have choices: Chocolate Fudge, or Swiss or French Buttercream  in a variety of colors.

These tiny, tall, four-layer  cakes serve 4. I'm donating two tiny cakes.

Value: $60 each

Opening bid: $20 each

    $50 for one. Chocolate please. But I’ll need to go back and read your description of frostings.

  6. Beverly Stafford says:

    OK, I’ll up my bid to $120. That’s $60 each for one white cake with buttercream and one chocolate cake with ganache. Or maybe white with ganache and chocolate with buttercream.

      This heartfelt winner/loser comment made me laugh, Adrienne! I’ve been checking in to see how all the auction items are doing, and I’ve gotta say, I wish I could bid on the cakes (of all varieties)! Or the evening at Doni’s… but until they figure out those Star Trek transporters, I’ll have to view it from afar :).

      I hope the auction will be a great success – such a wonderful cause, and I’m so glad to be part of it!
