Grain-free, Dairy-Free option 🌹
Happy Friday, Friends!
Love is in the air!! And so is the beautiful fragrance of freshly baked raspberry cakes with sugared frosting!
And really, when is it NOT a good time to make delicious miniaturized cakes?!
These lovely confections are full of fresh raspberries, cream (dairy-free version too!), Framboise and a touch of vanilla. You don’t have to add the Framboise, but it really does add a little something special. And these sweet iced cakes are blank canvases, just waiting for your creative touches! You can create the look pictured here with a little food coloring and piping (a few tips below), or you can create your own fabulous masterpiece with sprinkles, hearts, stars and or endless color combinations!
And these treats aren’t just perfect for your sweetheart, but they’re also lovely for a little one with a Valentine’s birthday, a dear friend or a special neighbor who might need some extra cheer.😊
-Here is the link for the mini cake pans, we used 3 of the 4 inch variety. You could also make cupcakes, or an 8×8 square sheet cake.
-We used Americolor gels for the colors pictured here, but you can find natural food dyes here.
-here is the icing tip we used for the piping surrounding the bottom of the cake and you can find the piping bags here.
-We googled “how to pipe a rose” and found numerous helpful tutorials. We practiced and got one or two nearly right, and another one or too not so right.😂 But it’s a fun challenge! And we lost our nail tool, so we cut a little cardboard circle, fitted it with a screw in the middle, covered it in aluminum foil and attached a nut to the base to keep it stable. Or if you’re not crazy about fashioning your own, you can find one here.
-And finally, a link to the Framboise.
Happy Valentine’s Day + Happy Baking!💘
