Baumkuchen is a German specialty, which is especially popular during Christmas time. Let me quickly dissect the name for you so you know what it all means.

This is the last of the Christmas Cake pops I made this year. The little teddy bear, a classic for Christmas.
After showing you have to make Christmas Tree and Present Cake pops, lets keep going and see what else we can do for Christmas themed cake pops.
This is going to be a little series, since I made various cake pops for an order. All were Christmas themed and we started with the Christmas tree three days ago. Now we need to put something under it.
I am sure by now that cake pops a good for pretty much any occasion. So far I’ve made regular round ones but also character ones like Angry Birds or Lalaloopsy. Of course they are perfect for Christmas as well. How about some Christmas trees?
First of all: I am sorry. It’s been 8 days since my last post and I am truly sorry. It’s been so busy here lately that I had no time to either photograph or write. I am baking but I am also baking old recipes that I’ve already posted. For example, I made 15 dozen Raisin Cookies, which left me with 20 egg whites. Some of those were used in the Christmas Macarons, one or two were used for Spitzbuben cookies. But I still have some left and so I made this Christmas Meringue.
Wild Serendipity, a local baker in Saskatoon, was kind enough to share her Macarons recipe with the world on her blog. Click here for the original post. She has learned the craft at the famous Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, so she knows what she is talking about. I wanted to try her recipe because it is slightly different than the others, and let me tell you, it worked like a charm.
Board Meetings from work are always a great excuse to bake because those meetings take a whole day and people come in from quite a distance and like to have a second breakfast. What is not eaten in the morning will be eaten later in the day.
When we have meetings I like to give people two sort of muffins. That way you barely can go wrong and people usually like one or the other. Since I had some bananas in my freezer I decided to use them.
It is mid-November and that means Christmas is not too far away. Some Germany Christmas items one will find during December need to be prepared somewhat in advance because their ingredients need to sit to develop the right amount of flavour. One of these items would be the Christmas Stollen, a yeast cake with dried fruits and nuts. Great way to share with friends and family is a mini version.
