  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until well combined. Stir in beaten eggs until no streaks remain.

  6. Prepare Icing: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a cooling rack on top. Arrange cooled sheet cake bites on the rack. In a small heat-safe bowl, combine milk, butter, and vanilla. Microwave for 25-30 seconds until butter melts. Stir in cocoa powder.

Techniques or Tips
