White Chocolate Christmas Tree Cakes
I love these cakelets! Soft and fluffy cake delicately flavored with white chocolate coated in green candy melts and covered in sprinkles; the perfect amount of softness and crunch. These are the perfect Christmas Eve dessert!!

Recipe: White Chocolate Cakes
Preheat the oven for 350F. Grease a silicon Christmas tree pan with Bakers Joy.
Melt chopped chocolate in a double boiler and let cool for ten minutes.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, a baking soda and salt; set aside.
Cream butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time, and buttery vanilla bakery emulsion, beating after each addition.
Stir together the milk and sour cream.
With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture and sour cream/milk, mixing until just combined.
Gently mix in white chocolate.
Fill Christmas tree pans about 3/4 of the way through. You will need to do this twice.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Release cakes from molds after cooling and chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes before rolling in melted candy melts and decorating in sprinkles.
