Christmas Tree Cakes with NEW Cake Boss Cake Mixes and Frostings {Giveaway}

December 9, 2013 16 Comments »

Let the baking begin!!! Tis’ the season to be baking, whether you’re headed out to a party or making baked goods as gifts, for most of us, this time of year our ovens are warm and the mixing bowls are out.

I enjoy baking at Christmas time and seeing people try my *hopefully yummy treats. {I have been known to win an award or two for my yummy cookies.} I think this love for baking comes from my mom, who enjoys making cookies and fudge around the holidays to give to neighbors and friends.

Recently, I was able to try out some of the brand NEW cake mixes and frostings from Cake Boss. In honor of the holidays I figured I would make something festive so I came up with a yummy Christmas Tree Cake:

To make my Christmas Tree cakes with Cake Boss Cake Mixes and Frostings, I wanted to add a surprise in the middle and since we’re celebrating Jesus’ birthday so I thought the, II’S YOUR PARTY cake mix was appropriate. The kids loved seeing the bright colored confetti in their cakes. We also kept the cakes simple by using the VIVA VANILLA frosting, since most kids like vanilla, and it’s easier to decorate or even change the color.

Using the 6-Cup Round Cakelette Pan, I baked my cakes, although I filled it a little too high, I would recommend for this project to fill the wells to half, the higher the cakes bake the more you will need to cut off to create a level “tree” bottom. {Although if you want a tasty snack or to use for cake pops or other treats, that may not be a bad thing.}

The frosting is made with real vanilla and palm oil so for me it was different than the usual store-bought frostings and I really enjoyed the flavor and texture.

Obviously, I’m not a frosting whiz, or a professional baker, but what my decoration skills lacked, these cakes made up for with their light and super moist taste. The moms were raving about the taste and I think I may have found my new cake mix and frosting for the holidays.

When it comes to a great tasting cake, it starts with the right ingredients. Each cake mix comes with a pouch of bakery crème – Buddy’s secret to making velvety moist cakes. The cake mixes are available in six delicious flavors: VA VA VELVET,IT’S YOUR PARTY, DECADENT DEVIL’S FOOD, CHOCOLATE TRIFECTA, PRIMO YELLOW, and DIVINE WHITE.
