Step-2 Frosting

  • Combine butter, powdered sugar, red food colour in a bowl and whisk till creamy and frothy.
  • Transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle to cover mini trees. (as shown in pictures below)

    Note:
    • I take powdered sugar slightly grainy to give the frosting a bit rough texture.
    • If you like your frosting to be a creamy texture, consider whisk with a hand mixer or electric mixer.

Step- 3 Decoration

Here comes the most fascinating and fun part of the cake that every kid loves!!!.

  • Once the cake is cooled completely, cut the cake in half on the longer side as this is a rectangle cake.
  • Then cut each half side into six triangle shapes to get twelve cake trees.
  • Use the piping bag to make strings on the Christmas tree cakes. It is the part that even my cutie loves the most, and you can see her creation!!

    (Frankly, It does not matter to me how it turned out as long as she is happy and willing to decorate these egg-free Christmas tree mini cakes.)
  • Take out straws and cut them into halves.
  • Using these straws, make a small hole in the bottom of the Christmas tree and insert that into the hole.
  • Finally, time for sprinkles or hundreds and thousands!

How many servings does this recipe make?

The number of servings this recipe makes depends on how big you like to cut your tree slices.
I cut big triangle slices of cake. It comes with twelve slices of tree cakes.

Some alternatives

  1. Consider heavy whipped cream instead of butter for the smooth, creamy frosting.
  2. You can also use icing prepared with sugar and water to decorate the trees instead of making frosting. It will also save you time!!
  3. Sprinkle desiccated coconut on the top of the tree cakes if you are a coconut freak. 

Tips n tricks

  • Do not over mix the cake batter as the resulting cake will not be spongy and soft.


  • Let the cake cool completely before cutting to prevent its crumbling.


  • To save time, prepare the cake a day before and decorate when you plan to party.
