  6. I've made them by using frozen bread dough. Prep it for baking, and then pinch off a small amount, roll it into a ball, slightly flatten it, and bake. Slice in half and use for slider buns. You can make them any size you want!

  8. I'm sorry, where are the links to these images so we can get the recipes? I clicked on the tagged words at the end of the post but many of those links did not take me to a site?

  9. Hello, thanks for the heads up! We fixed those pesky links. This blog post was meant for inspiration and most of the image links won't take you to recipes. The goal of the blog is to inspire you take any of your own recipes and favorite menu items and make them mini! Enjoy!

  10. where can you find the mini glasses

    ReplyDelete
  11. Great question! The mini glasses shown here are actually just shot glasses in various sizes. We advise figuring out the number of shots you will need and price comparing locally or online. Your caterer may even be able to rent them to you. This could get pricey, but the shot glasses can double as your wedding or party favors. Add personalization and you have the perfect gift for each guest!

    We offer 1.5 oz. personalized shot glasses. You can find them here:

    Happy Planning!

  16. Thank you, Anonymous and Zoey, for your comments! Yes, Zoey, people love food, especially snackies! A snack bar is just the ticket for a late-night wedding reception or party.

  17. I actually made an easier version of the grilled cheese/tomato soup idea. I just cut up garlic bread pieces and filled the shot glasses with marinara. So easy and yet adorable! :)

  18. OH No! I went to the link you provided on how to make the adorable hot dog buns... http://www.easyeverydayeats.com/2011/04/mini-slider-buns.html

    only to get an account suspended message - did anyone go there and keep the directions? I need these for 8/10/2012 date...PLEASE help!

  19. Farmer's Wife - Oh no! We weren't able to find the info either. A few of the comments above have tips on how to make the buns.

    - Cut regular buns with circle cookie or biscuit cutter
    - Use frozen bread dough and bake small rolls, then cut in half
    - Use frozen rolls, cut in half
    - Use Hawaiian Sweet Rolls or some other small dinner roll.

    You may also be able to call a local catering supply store (GFS for example) to see if they sell them. Good luck!
