Additional Information

Step 1

In advance: Make fondant loops and star. Roll out various colors of fondant 1/8 in. thick. For bow loops, cut strips 1/4 x 2 in.; cut 40 loops each in red, blue, green and yellow. Pinch ends together to form loops; let dry on side on cornstarch-dusted board. Cut star from yellow fondant using cutter. Cut 1/8 in. wide yellow strips for star swirl and lines. Shape swirl and attach along with lines using damp brush; let dry.

Step 2

Bake 1-layer cake in 12 x 18 in. Sheet Pan and cool completely on Cooling Grid. Cut cake into 48 2-inch squares with paring knife. Cover squares with melted candy. Follow package directions for melting candy. Place cooled cakes on Cooling Grid positioned over Cookie Sheet or Pan. Pour candy on cakes, spreading to edges with spatula so that candy drips down and covers sides. Let dry.

Step 3

For cake ribbons, roll out various colors of fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut 1/4 in. wide strips to fit across top and sides of cakes; attach with damp brush.

Step 4

Stack cakes in tree shape on serving plate, placing 21 for bottom layer, 14 for second layer, 7 for third layer, 4 for fourth layer, 1 for top layer. Attach loops to packages and lollipop stick to back of star with melted candy. Insert star on top.


During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season if you find yourself short on baking time, it won´t be a problem. Just purchase ready-make pound cakes and cut them down to size.

Tree-mendously Generous Mini Cakes is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're worried about how sturdy this cake is, you can always use a mini cupcake stand to present these beautiful presents. Either way, the presentation on this is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This took quite a bit of time (or maybe it's because I am such a perfectionist) but we decided (my husband and I) to do different cakes so the presents with the yellow on them were vanilla cake and the ones with the Red icing ribbon on them were chocolate and then the Dark blue was Carrot cake.....so it took some time but it's nice because you get a piece of cake and you can chose the kind of cake that you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been trying to think of a nice treat to take to the wonderful folks at my gym, but of course they are all very diet-conscious. This is the perfect solution, because each individual cake is just a tiny little portion-controlled bite!
