复古花环蛋糕

I love all holiday decorations,but my absolute favorite decorations are those from the past—especially mid-century decorations.Aluminum trees,金箔纸,色彩鲜艳的玻璃和金属饰品……基本上任何充满媚俗和色彩的东西都让我着迷。When thinking of holiday dessert ideas,我想向过去那些美丽的装饰色彩表示敬意,and a wreath cake adorned with retro-colored ornament candies seemed like a pretty perfect way to do that!!

这个蛋糕不应该被看作是一个经典的派对蛋糕,你切成片并提供,because let's be real—there's a lot of candy on there,嘴里满是糖果和蛋糕并不是品尝你完成的杰作的最愉快的方式。Instead,eat this cake in two parts: Pick off and enjoy the candy first,and then get to the cake.The decorating and tasting of this cake is essentially just like a gingerbread house,除了这个蛋糕,你不必担心任何东西会崩塌!!Retro Wreath Cake,makes 2 small cakes

1盒香草蛋糕混合物
small to large sized round candies (sixlets,格布雷斯棒棒糖,等)
colorful candy assortment (gum drops,甘草,marshmallows,等)

为了结霜:
2杯无盐黄油,softened
4杯糖粉
1汤匙香草提取物
黑凝胶食品着色

为了这个花环蛋糕,我建议使用中型(6杯左右)煎饼盘,因为它更容易装饰。But you can also use a large (12-cup) bundt cake pan if you'd like a larger cake surface.To make the base of the wreath,prepare a box cake mix (or any recipe of your choice).给锅上油,then fill it roughly three-quarters of the way with the batter.Bake your cake as directed,然后让蛋糕稍微凉一点。Once the pan is cool enough to tough,把金属架放在平底锅的顶上。当安全地将锅和架子固定在一起时,flip over in one fluid motion to unmold the cake.让蛋糕在铁丝架上冷却到室温。While the cake is cooling,准备奶油冻。在一个大碗或碗的搅拌器中,用低速搅拌黄油1分钟。逐渐加入糖粉和香草精,and beat until smooth.You can keep the frosting white,或者,如果你担心有任何基础节目(如我),你可以把它染成灰色,这样它就像一个复古银质金属丝花环。To color the cake,你只需要添加1滴黑色凝胶食品着色每3杯霜。Mix well with a spoon until the color is fully combined.

Because the height of the baked bundt cake is taller than what we need for our wreath,实际上你可以从一个蛋糕上得到两个花环。一旦蛋糕完全冷却了,use a serrated knife to cut the cake in half horizontally.Place your top piece aside for now.You can get back to that once you finish your first wreath!!Frost the base of your wreath cake using a spatula.Don't worry,it doesn't have to look perfect (or even decent,for that matter!)因为你要用糖果盖住底座。Just make sure the cake holds to that general wreath shape once frosted.If there's any uneven spots,use additional buttercream to even them out.Now it's time for the fun part!To decorate,first add your smaller round candies along the inner ring of the wreath,as this area is tricky to get to once you have added your other candies on.Add smaller round candies along the exterior ring edge as well to keep to that rounded wreath shape.From there,add on the medium and large round candies,as well as any other colorful candies,当你努力工作到蛋糕顶部的时候。Continue until your cake is filled with the candy ornaments.I chose to decorate my wreath cake with primarily round"ornaments,"但是你也可以加入棉花糖,candy canes or even a candy bow.To fill any gaps,在小圆糖果的背面加一点糖霜,然后把它们放在花环上。

一旦你装饰完你的花圈,place the cake in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to allow the cake to set.正如它所设定的那样,the frosting will become firm and the candy will set securely in place around the cake.

I think the most entertaining way to serve this cake would be to put it out on display at your holiday party,and encourage guests (especially any kids) to pick off whatever candy they desire.Once the candy has been properly picked off,把蛋糕切片上桌。Or,you could just slice and serve as is,让客人自己挑选糖果……完全由你决定!Either way,this retro wreath cake is sure to be the center of attention at your holiday party!xo.阿兰娜
