Christmas Ornament Cakes Ingredients
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 8 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups cake flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- several colors of icing to decorate finished ornament cakes
Christmas Ornament Cakes Instructions
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
- Spray both of the Christmas Ornament Cake pans with cooking spray.
- In one bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, then set to the side.
- In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
- Next, beat in the egg yolks one at a time.
- Now stir in the vanilla extract.
- Beat in the flour mixture alternating with the milk, and mixing until just combined.
- Pour batter into the bottom ornament cake pan. Be sure to fill each impression to the top.
- Now place the second pan directly on top of the first. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. There are little holes in each pan so you can do this.
- Once the cakes are completely cooked, remove any excess cake that may have come out of the holes and remove the top pan.
- Wait about 15 minutes, then carefully remove the Christmas Ornament Cakes from the bottom pan and continue to cool on a rack.
- Once the cakes are completely cooled, decorate as you would like.
