I had a container of buttermilk to use up and no butter in the house, so I ended up making a double batch of the Miette Tomboy cake.  I did the 6” round, and then made mini-cakes with the remainder.  Here is one of the mini-bundt style cakes with the super-crazy cream cheese buttercream I made (that’s another post).  I also made some mini-tart cakes…I filled 4” tart pans half full with the batter.  All turned out lovely.  I was thinking the tartlet-cakes could be stacked and would have a frilly-edge for a mini-two person layer cake.  It’s a great recipe that is dense, moist, chocolaty and because of the buttermilk, not lacking in flavour.

Wow, Sherrie, that is exceedingly cute. Your crazy buttercream has a beautiful color, and it looks like it pipes wonderfully!!  Very beautiful.  FWIW, you can freeze buttermilk.  I freeze it and put a piece of scotch tape on the container and write on the tape the weight of the contents so I know for next time I"m baking.  Was that way too “Hints from Heloise”?

Thanks for the suggestion, Anne.  I do sometimes freeze it, but my hubby thinks I use the freezer like a “time machine” and I’ve been trying to avoid putting much in there as of late.  Hints from Heloise or “Advice from Anne” is always welcome!

Thanks FG and Sophia!  Yes it’s in RHC, it’s the Miette Tomboy ... I baked most of the cakes to 195F.  Not an overly sweet cake and soft since it’s oil based.  It’s one of my favourite cakes from the book…although I think I’d like to try a different frosting other than Mouselline.  White chocolate is very nice with it, though.  It would be great with whipped cream or a fruit cloud cream, too.  Light whipped ganache may be yummy too.  The possibilites.
