In this article, I will show you how to make a Christmas Ornament cake and recommend things you can use, then you can take off with your own ideas and create the cake you want.
What You Will Need:
Cake Mix (any kind of cake mix you want)
2 Cans of Cake Icing (preferably a white icing so you can use food coloring)
Round Cake Pan
Small Loaf Pan
Candy (to decorate the ornament cake)
Baking the Christmas Ornament Cake
To begin, you will need to mix the cake according to the box. Then you will need to pour the batter in both pans. The round pan is for the actual ornament and the small loaf pan will be used for the top part of the ornament. Bake the cake according to the box instructions. When it is finished, let the cakes cool before removing them from the pan.
Removing the Cakes and Shaping Them
After the cakes have cooled, you can put the cakes together. To do this, remove the round cake and place it on whatever you want to place the cake on. You can use a cake pan, cardboard, or anything else you use for your cakes. Next, you can remove the cake from the loaf pan. You will probably want to cut part of the loaf pan cake to make it into a square instead of a rectangle. You can place the square at the top of the cake to piece your ornament together.
Decorating Your Christmas Ornament Cake
Now that you have everything baked and put together, you can begin decorating the Christmas ornament cake. Decide what color you want the cake to be. Then use food coloring to color the icing the color you want it. Cover the cake with the icing and use the candy you chose to decorate it and decorate the ornament. You can also use sprinkles to give the ornament cake that glitter look. There are many ways to decorate these cakes. So, look around online to get some ideas of what you can use to decorate your ornament cakes.
I find that M&Ms and sprinkles works great for these types of cakes. You may also want to use a different color for the top part of the ornament.
