Christmas Tree Cake
Although this elegant cake looks hard to make, it actually starts with two regular chocolate sheet cakes, which are simply cut into squares of varying sizes and set atop one another. A bittersweet chocolate glaze and sugared cranberries complete the festive look.
Why This Recipe Works
This elegant holiday cake looks hard to make—but looks can be deceiving. We started our Christmas Tree Cake recipe with two regular chocolate sheet cakes, cutting them into squares of varying sizes. We then set each square on top of another, and decorated them with buttercream frosting and sugar-coated cranberries. To “glue" the sugar coating onto the cranberries, we used egg whites.
