Well its definitely feeling like winter, the temperature has dropped and with the countdown to Christmas just around the corner I thought it was time to start thinking about all the Christmas baking. When it comes to cakes, I love this time of year. There are so many fun designs and the possibilities are endless, you can then create great homemade treats for your friends and family. So with all that in mind, for this weeks video I really wanted to create a Christmas themed cake. So below is a video with step by step instructions on how I made this reindeer bauble cake.

Christmas Bauble cake

The cake I make in this video is quite a small cake, with the ball measuring 3.5 inches across, which would be the perfect size for 2 people. But the sphere tins come in loads of sizes, so depending on how many people it needs to feed it can be made alot larger. (Here is a link to a similar cake tin to the one that I used: Also a great tip when using these tins, unless you have a tray style tin which has more than one sphere, is to place them inside a normal round cake tin when in the oven to stop them tipping over!

So for this cake I added an image of a reindeer on the front. Now I didn’t have a particular cutter that I used so I printed out an image of the reindeer onto some stiff card and used this as a template when cutting out my icing / fondant. I have put the actual image I used to the left for you. If you right click the image and save it you will be able to print it out. I also used these really pretty snowflake plunger cutters on both the cake and the board. I think one of my favourite parts of the cake is the board. By adding a snowflake pattern into the icing it really created a whole theme for the cake and just made it look so Christmasy.

I really hope you enjoy this video tutorial and enjoy creating your own Christmas bauble cake. Also don’t for get to check out some of my other Christmas related video tutorials.
