How To Make Tiny Flower Pot Cakes

flower pot cake

Sometimes you want to create a dessert that is both a show stopper and is deceptively easy. Well, these teeny weeny flower pot cake bites are just the thing.

Using a chocolate mold makes them fool proof and dirt “brownie” filling tricks the eye but couldn’t be simpler. Use pre made royal icing flowers for the topper or pipe your own if you’re feeling ambitious. Either way, it’s the perfect treat to wow your guests.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Flower Pot Chocolate Mold
Orange Candy Coating Discs
Store Bought Brownies (with no icing) or Chocolate Cake Pop Filling
Chocolate Store Bought Icing in a Piping Bag
Ready-to-Use Royal Icing Flowers or Fondant Flowers

Step 1: Paint And Fill The Pots

Start by crumbling up the brownies and set them aside in a bowl.


Then, in a microwave safe bowl, heat some orange candy coating discs on half power. Remove after 30 seconds and stir. Continue to heat and stir in 30 second intervals until the discs are melted. (Be careful to not overheat the discs because they will burn).


Use a paintbrush to coat each cavity of the flower pot mold. Use a dabbing motion if paint strokes are leaving too many thin spots. (Reheat the coating as necessary because it may get firm if you are working slowly).

Place the mold in the fridge for 5 minutes. Remove it from the fridge, hold it up to the light and then touch up any thin spots with additional coating so that you have a solid shell to put filling in.



Scoop some brownie filling and press it into each pot.


On the back of your royal icing flower, pipe a dollop of icing and then adhere the flower to the top of the cake. Accent with leaves or additional flowers.

    I made these using mini cupcakes. Looks the same and easier than finding molds. Tastes better too! Mini cupcakes are the best to use to decorate
