I still plan to tea stain some cheesecloth and wrap them but they will sit here until next weekend for that! =) I will probably also add a little more cinnamon and spices on these to make them just a little darker - a little more primitive.
I used a variety of tins to make my cakes. I really preferred the little tart tins that you can see in the back. They were just the perfect size and made a nice patterned texture around the outside of the cake. The heart shaped tin was nice, too, but I only have one of those. Guess I had better start watching for more....

I checked them after a little over an hour and they popped out of the tins nicely so I sprinkled a little more cinnamon in the tin, put them back, and into the oven for another couple of hours before checking them again. They were still doing great so I let them go for the rest of the 6 hours, turned off the oven and left them overnight.
