making minis - cookies & cakes

midtownDiner123 | Sep 21, 2008 05:15 PM

i bought small cookie cutters and 4.5" springform cake pans.

MINI COOKIES
what types of cookies hold shape well? i've been thinking of these (below) but maybe there are more creative ideas?
gingersnap
sugar cookies
thumbprint/shortbread

MINI LAYER CAKES
can i bake regular cakes in springform cake pans? since so many cake recipes fit 2x 9" cake pans, i was thinking of using cupcake recipes and making mini layer cakes. has anyone done that? is there anything i need to be aware of in choosing a recipe for these pans? i guess i would have to watch cooking time closely and only fill 2/3 of the way w/batter?
