The Easiest Holiday Cake Designs

Holiday Mini Cakes

The holidays are coming, and we can't wait!  Our mini cake kits are the perfect way to get into the kitchen with your family and friends. Our kits come with everything you need to make bake and decorate the cutest Christmas creations. Perfect for gifting, leaving out for Santa or enjoying with a nice hot cup of tea! 

In our holiday mini kit, you will find primary colored fondant. You can mix the colors together to make all the colors of the rainbow- plus brown! Kids love to do this part but they can have hot hands. If you find the fondant is getting sticky, use a little dusting of cornstarch or confectioners' sugar. 

You don't have to immediately decorate all the cakes, but the frosting may form a crust over time (don't worry, this is supposed to happen!). If this happens, you can use a small dab of water to help stick the fondant pieces to the cakes. 

We always recommend working on a piece of parchment paper to make it easy to move the cakes around (and for easy clean up at the end).
