Christmas Tree Cakes Recipe

Christmas Tree Cake

Another of Granny’s creations that I now make too! My daughter, age four loves making these with me. Warning; I think more Christmas baubles (the tiny balls for decoration) went on the floor as much as the cake!

Prep time: 20 mins

Cook time: 25 mins

Feeds: Makes at least 8 Christmas Tree cakes

Handy to freeze before you add toppings. 


  • 3oz Self raising flour
  • 1oz cocoa powder (you can get away with less than this, just make up the flour and cocoa so that the total quantity between them is 4oz).
  • 4oz butter (Vitalite)
  • 4oz sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 2 eggs


  • Blast flour, cocoa powder and baking powder to fluff it with food mixer
  • Add all other ingredients 
  • Mix until smooth
  • Pour into a round dish and bake at 160c for 25 mins.

Once cool, cut the cake into half, then quarter, then cut again so the cuts look like a star.

Use creative sticks to create the lolly pop effects

Use writing icing for the tinsel affect and then choose your topping.

What I like about these cakes are that they look so effective but they don't need too much sugary coating / sweets on the top to look good and I think these are fairly generous!
