A Christmas Cake Recipe Easy Enough for the Kids!

If you’ve been following along on B-Inspired Mama, you might have figured out by now that I’m a semi-homemade kind of mama.  If there’s a shortcut to make it easier for me to be creative with my kids, I gotta know it.  (And I’ve gotta share it with you!)  So when I was asked by The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association to use some frozen and refrigerated foods to make a simple holiday recipe, I was all over it.  Because what better mama shortcut than a semi-homemade meal or dessert using frozen and refrigerated ingredients?  Check out the Christmas cake recipe (if you can even CALL it a recipe!)

Semi-Homemade Christmas Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Family Size Sarah Lee  Butter Pound Cake (from the frozen food aisle)

  • holiday candy (We used Mini Christmas M&Ms and Spiced Gumdrops.)

Steps:

1. Let the pound cake thaw for about 10 minutes.  (It’s easier to cut if it isn’t completely thawed out.)  Use a serrated knife to cut it diagonally.

2. Use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut down each corner of the foil pan and bend the sides down to make it easier to take your cake out.

3. Arrange the two triangle cake pieces into one large triangular tree shape.

4. Use the green icing and whipped cream to make stripes across the tree cake.

I don’t think I’ve made an entirely homemade holiday dessert in my life, or at lease since having kids!  The freezer aisle has 3,700+ different, delicious foods including yummy desserts like this pound cake to use, so why not?  And I already know it’s made by a chef, with fresh ingredients, and lots of taste tests, so it’s a no-fail for the holidays!  And what dessert isn’t better with a little whipped cream?  The refrigerated dairy aisle always has something (like whipped cream or cream cheese made fresh dairy) to take my semi-homemade desserts to the next level.
