Pink Jewel Christmas Cake - Video Recipe

This is my favorite color!
Like I decorate my iPhone, I decorated my cake :D

The cake is healthy banana rum-raisin cake. I coated it with white chocolate. In this way you can keep the cake moist in the fridge. Yummy!!!

Pink Jewel Christmas Cake

Difficulty: medium
Time: 2 hours
Number of servings: 1 cake

Necessary Equipment:
13cm (5.1-inch) heart shaped cake pan
cookie cutters of your choice

50g (1.8oz.) butter (softened)
50g (1.8oz.) cake flour
50g (1.8oz.) bread flour
30g (1.0oz.) powder sugar
1 tbsp. milk
white chocolate pen
sprinkles of your choice (I used silver and pink silver)
1 egg
75g (2.6oz.) cake flour
50g (1.8oz.) butter (softened)
40g (1.4oz.) soft brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 banana
40g (1.4oz.) rum-soaked raisins
120g (4.2oz.) white chocolate
meringue Santa Claus

1. Mix butter, milk, and powder sugar (powder sugar makes the cookie crisp) with spatula until creamy.
2. Sift in the cake flour and bread flour mixture (you can use all-purpose flour) little by little and mix well.
3. Roll out dough between two pieces of plastic wrap to 0.3 cm (0.1 inch) thick. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour to chill.
4. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F). Remove the plastic wrap. Cut out cookies with cookie cutters of your choice. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll out scraps, and repeat.
5. Bake at 170C (338F) for 10-12 minutes. Cool the cookies (on the sheet or wire rack) and attach sprinkles (use tweezers to attach) with chocolate pen (Set the chocolate pen in a cup of hot water for a few minutes. Cut the tip of the chocolate pen and use).
1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Mash the banana with fork.
2. Cream the butter in a large bowl with a wire whisk. Add sugar, beaten egg (little by little), and mix well.
3. With a spatula, mix banana. Sift in flour and baking powder a small amount at a time, and mix well. Then add rum-soaked raisins and mix well.
4. Butter the cake pan and pour the mixture in the pan.
5. Bake at 180C (350F) for 30-40 minutes, or until lightly browned. (Depending on the heat of the oven, cooking time may differ, so please watch out.)
6. Place the cake pan on the wire rack to cool.
1. Remove the cake from the pan and turn upside-down on the wire rack.
2. Melt white chocolate over hot water. Pour over the cake and spread over the side or let it drizzle down the side.
3. Decorate the cake with cookies and meringue Santa Claus, or any sugar decoration of your choice ;)


Happy Merry Christmas!
