Can you believe that this is the first time in 10 years of my baking career that I have been asked to make a Christmas themed cake!!! Me either! A lot of families get together and bake this time of year so not a lot of custom cakes are needed this time of year.
I was super excited when I was given full access to decorate this cake how I seen fit. I think it turned out great! I’ve always been envious of all the beautiful cakes on pinterest that other bakers have made during Christmas.
This cake has sprinkles all through out the cake. There are sprinkles baked into the cake, sprinkles in between the layers of the cake, and sprinkles on the outside of the cake! Since they requested white cake I was able to add red and green sprinkles in the cake batter and bake just like you would a confetti cake.
Although when I cut the top off the cake I didn’t see any of the green sprinkles. But the red sprinkles showed up and it looked like I baked it with a candy cane! Then I added red and green swirled sprinkles between the layers of the cake. Of course the cake has sprinkles all over the outside of the cake too!
I am really happy with the way that it turned out! I’ve always loved seeing the swirled christmas trees on other cakes. I was finally able to make one myself!
