Snowy Chocolate Baby Cakes

I was wishing for a little something sweet this past weekend and decided to make some Christmas inspired Baby Cakes.

You wouldn't believe how simple they are to make. 


Recipe from Southern Living.

Snowy Chocolate Baby Cakes

1 (18.25 oz.) package devil's food cake mix
1 (16 oz.)  container sour cream
½ cup milk
¼ cup butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°.  Beat first 6 ingredients at low speed with an electric mixer just until dry ingredients are moistened.  Increase speed to medium, and beat 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth, stopping to scrap bowl as needed.

Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured (12 cup) muffin pans.

Bake at 350° for 20 to 22 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean.  Cool in pan 5 minutes.  Remove from pans to wire racks, and cool completely (30 minutes.)

Arrange cakes upside down on a serving platter.  Spoon Winter White Glaze (recipe below) over cakes over (about 1 tablespoon per cake) spreading with a spatula to thoroughly cover cakes.  Garnish, if desired.

Winter White Glaze

4 cups powdered sugar (I used a little less)
1 tablespoon meringue powder
¼ cup hot water (I used a little more)

Beat together all ingredients with an electric mixer.  Use immediately.

 
Cute aren't they? 
 

Enjoy!

Got to go to watch the Christmas tree lighting in Rockefeller Center now.
