Christmas Tree Cake Pop

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to create these pretty one serve Christmas tree cakes using a 104 tip and some white chocolate ganache.

Video By Rosie's Dessert Spot

Vanilla Cake Recipe:
160 grams butter
1 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
4 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 and 1/4 cups of self raising flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch salt

Ganache recipe:
150 grams white chocolate buttons (I used Nestle melts)
50 grams heavy cream / whipping cream

The above recipe makes 1x 6 inch cake. I put the batter into 14 cupcake tins and used 12 cupcakes to make these cake pops. You can make 3 individual tree's with 12 crumbed cupcakes, measuring at about 90 grams each before decoration.

The gold dust I used is Gold Diamond, which is 100% edible. The brand is Creative Cake Decorating.

My first Christmas tutorial for this year! More Christmas related tutorials to come, including cakes ;) I have a few ideas up my sleeve, can't wait to share them with you guys!

As always, thank you for tuning in :) I will catch you in the next dessert tutorial x

These look wonderful, but I seem to be totally dumb and not sure I understand what you are saying at the start.  I presume you are using the recipe for the cake and it is this that you are crumbling up and then adding the ganache mixed with the cream.   Which means a separate batch of ganache for the piping?  



Rosie These look amazing

And Mimmy to answere your question ,

First of all that is a legitimate. Question and you are not Dumb.

In the first part of the video she is using all the of the cake she baked from her recipe Then after you crumble it all up in a big bowl you will add just a few tablespoons of the ganache that you made.  You want to have enough where all the cake mixture holds together to much and it will just be a mess and u will need to add more cake to even it out.  Looks like she just added 2 Tablespoons.  The rest is for piping. 

Hope this helped you and made sense
