White Chocolate Christmas Cake

It’s Christmas time!! Are you ready? Presents, food, family, fun. Twinkle lights, carols, parades, and of course the Christmas tree!

The smell of boiling lemon and orange peels made my house smell so good! And then the spiced scents of the cinnamon, ginger and cranberries just put me right into the holiday spirit. I loved it!

Dress up a cake with some sugared lemon and orange peels and some fun chocolate candy decorations.

Have you ever torte a cake before? Not sure what “torte” means? It means to cut in half across in a horizontal motion. (ok, I just made that up.) But really, all you are doing is taking your round cake and slicing it in half.

Some do this with a serrated knife and I’ve seen others use floss. I like my Wilton Cake Leveler. It’s easy and quick to use and it always cuts straight.

See all those pretty layers?

Putting this beautiful cake together!

It’s so easy to fill a cake.

Want to fill a cake with fruit and not have it bleed through? This frosting dam is the way to go.

Interested in the wax paper in the photos above?

Place the wax paper under the cake to keep the cake platter clean. You could frost the cake on a board and then transfer it to the stand, but that’s an extra step and you’d see it when you sliced into it. I place pieces of wax paper around the cake when I frost, then gently remove it when I’m done leaving behind a clean cake platter. Easy!

Wanna know how I made the top?

Candy Topping

I simply took some of the white chocolate, placed it into a baggie and snipped off the corner. Then I covered a cookie sheet with wax paper and drizzled circles all over it. I let it harden in the fridge and then broke up the pieces and balanced them on top of the cake.

Stunning in its simplicity, isn’t it 🙂

Nothing beats a beautiful White Chocolate Christmas Cake with spiced cranberry filling and sugared orange slices.

How much extra powdered sugar did you use in the icing? I was a little confused when It said to cream the sugar first, add white chocolate, lastly vanilla. Next step was to add powdered sugar. I used it in the creaming method. Just a little confused

This is for the frosting. Depending on your humidity and moisture in the wet ingredients, sometimes you may need to add more powdered sugar to get the desired consistency. Just add a little at a time until it's thick.
