Festive Gluten-Free Christmas Cake Bites
These gorgeous little Christmas Cake Bites are a fun and decorative alternative to the traditional Christmas Cake! Perfect for parties (or portion control), these little pieces of festive fun are sure to be a great success!
You can use any Christmas Cake recipe, such as my Decadent and Moist Dark Chocolate Christmas Cake with a Scandinavian Twist, and you’ll probably find that this version is even easier to make; both because you get away from complicated tin-lining, and because the icing becomes a breeze!
Instead of making your Christmas Cake in a regular round cake tin, make it instead on a lined baking tray.
Once cooled down you can decorate with one layer of rolled marzipan and one layer of fondant icing. Baste the cake with jam before you lay the marzipan on top.
Cut the cake into little bite-sized squares, before you decorate them.
I used red fondant icing to roll little holly berries, which i pushed down upon with a skewer to make a decorative groove. I then used parsley for holly leaves, but you can make these from green fondant if you please. I sprayed the cakes lightly with food grade gold spray, before I placed them on a serving platter.
